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 Hanak was very kind explained everything and answered my questions about the procedure

Reviewed on Apr 4, 2024

Dr. Hanak spent the amount of time necessary to explain the issues of associated with the results of my initial test and quickly ordered a follow on test to see if there was a problem with a procedure that had been done a few months ago. When that was not a cause of the problem, she and I discussed our next steps. We both came to a mutual decision that we both felt comfortable with. She involved me in the process to determine what came next which is a rare trait in many Doctor's profile. I see many Doctor's. Dr. Hanak is quite special. I don't always like the content of her message, but I do appreciate her delivery style.
