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.

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.

Dr. Lopez is outstanding.

Dr. Lopez comes highly recommended. I see her for laser therapy treatment on my warts, which are exacerbated by my Crohn's Disease and being immunocompromised. When I first started treatment, the warts were numerous and large. Dr. Lopez has successfully treated the condition and reduced the warts to a few very small ones. Dr. Lopez is always courteous and thorough in explaining what will take place and providing answers to any questions and concerns.

Dr Lopez was absolutely wonderful. She took the time to do a full body check when that was not the main reason I came.

After cell removal, decisions were made by staff to perform additional surgery to close and repair the wound without fully explaining the options to me. Dr. Lopez corrected the situation, explained the options, and allowed me to forego the planned additional surgery. She noted that should I change my mind after the wound heals, that there would NOT be an insurance issue.
