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 1/31/2024, Dr. Kopicky 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.

I don't want to Imagine what my breast cancer journey would have been like without Dr. Kopicky. From my initial appointment to discuss my prognosis, to my final post-surgical appointment, her medical expertise, compassion, and concern for the "whole patient" was on display. While many surgeons are in and out as quickly as possible, Dr. Kopicky thoughtfully considered my post-surgical appearance and took the road less traveled by many surgeons to "hide" scars where/when she could. I will forever be grateful to her and her team for all they did to help me down this path that no one wants to travel. I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Highly recommended.

I was in distress with an acute infected cyst and abscess. I was given antibiotics for 7 days and told to schedule an appointment with dermatology. I COULD NOT GET AN APPOINTMENT FOR 3 weeks and with the Breast Center it was even longer - NO appointments available until December. I had to call in everyday even though they said I was on a waiting list. By the third morning, I was very exhausted from the infection, finally they said there was an opening in fairview at the Moll Center. Since visiting Dr Kopicky, I am now on the road to recovery.

Dr Kopicky really put me at ease and I was very stressed. She was competent yet empathetic and very kind and gentle. I felt confident that I was in very good hands. The staff and the Dr seemed like a well-oiled machine - and they seemed happy which made me feel better like if this was a place where everyone died all the time they wouldn't be able to seem so positive- it felt like a place where they knew they were doing good work and people were surviving- it helped me feel more hopeful
