Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 1/26/2017, Dr. Coffman has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

The staff has always been extremely caring and kind for all the years since my diagnosis and treatment. I have never had a bad experience. I have recommended Cleveland Clinic to many women for treatment.

Reviewed on Sep 26, 2016

After receiving the results of my blood test, I sent Dr. Coffman a MyChart message asking about next steps, as my results were abnormal. I received a notification within a couple hours from one of Dr. Coffman's nurses indicating she had passed my message on to the doctor and that I should hear back shortly. The next day, Dr. Coffman called me personally to discuss the results of my blood test. He must have done so during a lunch break, because it was around noon and I know he had a full schedule that day from when I set up my initial appointment. This was the first time, outside of my primary care physician, that I have ever had a doctor personally call me back. I always receive prompt responses from each of my Cleveland Clinic physicians' offices, but most often it is a nurse of physician's assistant relaying the doctor's message. I have no problem with this at all, but it was definitely a nice surprise to hear from Dr. Coffman personally. Additionally, his nurse followed up with me later that day to make sure I knew the Dr. had left me a voicemail and to let her know if I had any questions. I am very satisfied with the care and attention that was provided by Dr. Coffman and his team.
