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 10/29/2020, Dr. Shoskes 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.

The Doctor squeezed me in. He had been ready to leave so I was appreciative of that.

I am a fan of the clinic and needed care. I got the care but my blood pressure was up and so was my patience after a two hour. The Doctor saved my day by seeing me so he should get a gold star.

Dr. D Shoskes seemed very knowledgeable and expressed his knowledge as applicable to my situation, clearly and concisely. There seemed to be no personal touch, but it wasn't necessary, I was there on a fact finding mission and he responded accordingly.

incredible experience. I have seen dozens of doctors over the last several years and Dr. Shoskes would be the best, hands down. He was polite, but directed the appointment based on his expertise. He was not distracted by obsession over what caused my problems; his only concern was how to treat them. As a result of his professional prowess, I am more comfortable than I have been in years. Thank you!

I will not recommend Dr. Shoskes or his practice ever! However as far as the Cleveland Clinic I am very grateful for all of the awesome care I have received from other Cleveland Clinic doctors, nurses and physical therapist and am blessed with that. I just had a really bad experience which I can not even really put into words. On that note yes I will and have r4commended Cleveland Clinic on many occasions.
