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 9/10/2021, Dr. Oberfeld 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.

I like Dr. Oberfeld very much. I would not recommend that anyone go to that location. It involves my paying for valet service and walking with a walker. I noticed many other patients using walkers and canes. Being there for one hour plus 45 minutes involved too much waiting for a simple eye pressure checkup plus the tech taking photos of my eyes.

in how to use the testing equipment properly, and after hurting me twice, finally asked another tech for help. I was not pleased with her lack of empathy/experience, and her obvious lack of how to properly carry out her duties with this extremely important test. She really unnerved me and made me feel anxious about the outcome. I did not mention this incident to Dr. Oberfeld, but in hindsight, I wish I had told him about it. Perhaps whomever oversees the competence of the technicians in this office should pay more attention to their expertise and give further instruction and direction so they give proper care to patients.
