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 5/29/2017, Dr. Lipold 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.

Dr.Lipold printed out some information on bone health because when she asked me how many servings of calcium I had a day I said I wasn't sure. she proceeded to give me a hand out on Foods with calcium that seemed as it was from the 1970s. - The information was absolutely outdated recommending me to eat things like white bread, etc. - The brochure was laughable - dr Lipold is very smart but at times she is a bit robotic lacking personality. dr Lipold is an excellent doctor - very smart - I have no plans of changing for those reasons. the nutrition information Was not Dr. Little's fault she was just doing her job but the clinic needs to update their information because from a nutritional standpoint it is extremely outdated I am also speaking from experience with my husband who had a stent put in recently the nutrition information that they gave him was extremely outdated Telling him to eat things like low-fat crackers, etc.

There was some confusion at the end of my visit(mostly on my part) about a vaccination I was supposed to have gotten that day. I left without getting it, but I can follow-up on this.

Dr. Lipold is very knowledgeable, capable accessible and NEVER, EVER condescending - like so many of her medical brethren.

Support for lifestyle changes is really important. It is very helpful to me if the doctor acts as a coach. You have to really be supportive of increased exercise & improved diet.
