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 4/25/2018, Dr. Sikon 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.

The experience with Dr Sikon was extremely good. She was kind, considerate as well as clearly very smart and knowledgeable.

Dr. left room and I thought she would return but she did not. on to the next patient I presume. I left thinking I had not had a totally satisfactory discourse with my doctor.
Reviewed on Aug 9, 2018
my doctor has split responsibilities between seeing patients and being an administrator. I'm glad she's working to make the Clinic a better provider administratively but it does limit her availability as a doctor. I accept those limits and work within her schedule in order to keep her as my doctor. She's an excellent doctor.

I have had problems with communications via MyChart with staff - the problem of short or automated messages, of working too fast and not taking the time to actually answer the question that was asked, but I have no such problems with Dr. Sikon or her nurse.

This Doctor is great, just to long of a waiting period to finally get to see her, always backed up with patients

Dr. Sikon great doctor.
Reviewed on May 31, 2018
Dr. Sikon is popular and getting in to see her is not nearly as easy as it was when I started seeing her 16 years ago. This is not to blame her but is in fact testament to what a great doctor she is. My interactions with check-in personnel are completely separate from my interactions with Dr. Sikon and her staff.

Dr. Sikon's nurse is awesome. I love seeing her as much as seeing Dr. Sikon during my visits.
