Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

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 4/5/2017, Dr. Austin 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.

Dr Austin is very kind, patient and does a great job using charts, drawings to explain things. She is also very willing to help, answer my chart questions after the visit. She is the best and I would recommend her to anyone

Provider sometimes had condescending tone and sometimes based her interaction on her perception of what she thought she knew about the pt instead of actually getting to know the pt. Felt the need as a pt to be careful what I said as she came across as defensive at times. She was overall clearly knowledgeable but sometimes doesn't hurt to listen to the pt too.

So far my husband and I have had an excellent experience at the Cleveland Clinic. We have been trying to conceive for over a year and were getting the run around at my regular OB-GYN practice. Appointments to see my regular doctor were scheduling 3-4 months out. We were able to get an appointment with Dr. Austin within 48 hours. I was very nervous and the entire staff helped us both feel at ease. Dr. Austin listened to our concerns and talked to us for almost an hour. She explained everything very carefully and answered all of our questions. We outside of Cleveland and she was very accommodating in trying to minimize the number of times we would have to make the trip. We left her office feeling optimistic - something we haven't felt in a long time. We certainly look forward to working with her and visiting other Cleveland Clinic doctors in the future.

I am a very A type, list making, organized person. When Dr. Austin started making a list of the steps we needed to take, I thought, 'Oh! She gets me!'
