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 recognized my issue immediately and gave me honest and accurate diagnosis. he also gave me metatarsal pads to alleviate nearly all of my pain. my previous foot doctor did no such thing. I'm so grateful and happy I saw Dr McKee.

Reviewed on Jan 6, 2021

Dr did NOT EVEN LOOK AT ME upon entering room - went straight to desk to log onto computer. I marked "good" for likelihood to recommend him to others because he was aware of my problem, gave a thorough exam of part affected, and a follow up plan to closely monitor progress. Also his visit notes in MyChart were among the most thorough that I have seen. So I would rate him a good clinician with Poe interpersonal skills.
