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 9/14/2021, Dr. Simon 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. Simon is personable and to the point. He listens to my concerns and takes them into consideration to formulate the best decisions/care for my daughter.

Reviewed on Aug 13, 2021

I had a difficult time getting through on the appointment line. I called 3 times and was on hold for 20 minutes each time before hanging up. Finally I used the web portal to message the doctor's office directly and Dr Simon called me back personally to set up an appointment. I appreciated him taking the time out of his day to do this very much. There is no appointment request option on the web portal available for Dr Simon. If there were, it would be much easier. So, overall, I had both a bad experience with the appointment line, but an excellent experience with Dr Simon.

I like Dr. Simon quite a bit, but feel he is overscheduled, and therefor rushed in the amount of time he has to explain things. I don't exactly hold that against him, but it is hard not to feel there is adequate time for questions when it comes to your child's mental health.
