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 4/2/2023, Dr. LaPlante 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.

The Doctor was easy to talk to but she was very focused on one specific type of treatment that I was clear I was not interested in. She wouldn't listen to me and my desires about how I wanted to move forward.

Reviewed on Aug 30, 2023

I explained my issues with current birth control and was told that it was simply outside stress. I was guilted several times for not coming in for my previous annual. I asked for more information on other types of birth control and the doctor gave me no verbal information. The flier I was given gave no information other than length of effectiveness. I felt like I was being scared into immediately switching into a different birth control despite my concerns. There was no communication during the exam. The nurse told me I was due for a pap smear, but the doctor didn't mention it or give me an opportunity to. She was overall unwelcoming, rough, uninformative, and demeaning at times.

I have physicians in this practice, but have never seen Dr. LaPlante before. She was interested, caring, thorough, compassionate, and actually listened to what I had to say. I told her I had pelvic floor, and when she did my exam she was so gentle, Another thing that impressed me is that I was prescribed a two day dose of antibiotics. After telling her this made me uncomfortable because I have had cdiff in the past and have IBS as well. She took her time and found an antibiotic that she felt would not cause the cdiff to return or irritate my digestive system. She also suggested I increase my fluid intake and add yogurt to my diet. I couldn't thank her enough for caring.
