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.

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.

I have never had a doctor that I've liked and trusted as much as I do Dr. Flask

Reviewed on Sep 16, 2020

I continue to be happy with Dr. Flask. However, she had a resident with her that day and her bedside manner was not the best. I was concerned going into this appointment for some weight gain which was confirmed with vitals and hoping to discuss this with the provider. When the resident pulled up her growth chart, she commented "what happened here? Was this because of all the staying in?" I was taken aback by how abrupt she was and in front of my daughter and just feel the whole situation could have been handled better.
