Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

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.

excellent care

Reviewed on Oct 11, 2017

Dr. Davis was very respectful of my wishes to avoid surgery, and he was patient while I made the decision about how to proceed. He told it like it was, and his confidence helped me be confident in my decision. Once I decided to move forward with surgery, it was less than 24 hours between my decision and the surgery.

Dr. Davis is a miracle worker! He's very caring and takes time to respond to my concerns and to explain the best treatment plan for me. I wish you could clone him! He has helped me immeasurably at every office visit.

Dr Davis is excellent!

Reviewed on May 3, 2017

After waiting for an hour in the exam room for the fellow and then the doctor to come in, the appointment felt rushed. The fellow spent a minimal amount of time talking to me about my medical concern and did some basic exams. The doctor then came in and spent about 5 minutes talking to me and did not ask many questions. His bedside manner was poor. I felt as though I was not being listened to and instead being blamed for my condition. I have had many wonderful experiences with Cleveland Clinic physicians and was extremely disappointed with this one. I will not be returning.

I first saw Dr. Davis over 20 years ago for an injury to my foot. if I have any problem with it, I go to him. He takes care of the problem right away. I don't trust anyone else like I do him to take care of my foot.

Sensitivity to waiting time was horrible.

dr. Davis is excellent and understands sports medicine well. He understands the sport she is in and the physical requirements. he also understands the frustration of dealing with the school and PE classes when a child has as rigorous of a sport as my daughter does!
