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.

Dr Ukleja is somewhat new to my Care Team. That being said he has , from the start, really shown interest in helping me with all of his resources in one of my most difficult health matters . He has made such an immediate difference in my quality of life by maintaining my body's ability to justwake up & be able to eat, sleep, function with a level of energy. All things I have struggled with for over 20 years. He quite quickly knew what I needed, and I trusted him from the beginning. I am really looking forward to a long long lasting care provider relationship with Dr Ukleja. In such a short time he has greatly improved my quality of life.
