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.

Dr McKee really took a lot of time with me, trying to figure out what was wrong with my foot. Wasn't convinced that my at-home diagnosis of PTTD was correct. He pushed to get me an MRI while I was at Cleveland. He followed up with phone calls to me after I was back home (7 hours away) to give me the results of my MRI and to send my at-home therapist an RX to start physical therapy on my Rt foot.

Reviewed on Sep 19, 2022

I felt like the doctor was just rambling on with all his "knowledgable" fancy words. It seemed like he was just giving me textbook answers and not really listening to what I was feeling or asking. He didn't even tell me what the x-ray technicians diagnosis was.
