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 6/13/2018, Dr. Model 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.

This was a first visit to this provider since my previous provider had retired. Outside of having to wait six months for the appointment, I am happy with this new provider. She was caring and interested in my well being.

Reviewed on Oct 22, 2018

I felt reassured that I had made a good choice in the selection of this provider.

Reviewed on Oct 22, 2018

For an appointment at 7:10 am, I had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seen. That bothered me. When I did meet the staff, they were very nice. I only wish I had been informed why the wait was so long, as I thought I would have been the first appointment. Perhaps other patients aren't prompt in arriving, but that was a very long time. However when I did see the doctor, she didn't rush me or dismiss any of my questions. I have a very favorable opinion of her.

dr. said to call with concerns.

Reviewed on Jul 26, 2018

Dr Model is uncompassionate. She is rude, she does not act as a professional. I felt uncomfortable talking to her! She did not want to discuss nor hear much concerning my condition. Labs and X-RAYS were ordered to date she nor no one at the practice has called to give me my results! luckily I signed up for mychart, however I need a physician to transcribe what is reported. I will NEVER go back to her and ANYONE who asks I will tell them all about DR MODEL nasty unprofessional attitude. I will NEVER be seen there again!
