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 4/20/2016, Dr. Mandell 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.

I have been using the C/C for a very long time. The care is and always have been the best experience you could offer for care!! Dr Mandel has always been very kind, caring and the best in his field and always as a decent and superior person. He has referred me to other care takers downtown and they have also far exceeded my expectations! Many of my friends and a few relatives also see Dr Mandel and feel as I do. Thank you for employing the best of the best!Sincerely,Faye Cunningham

Dr. Mandell spent so much time evaluating and explaining things to me. I have never been treated so well. Thank you.

Dr. Mandell is absolutely the best physician the Clinic has. He always listens, the only reason I have not received my test results back yet is because I haven't had time to take the test that was ordered. I have already referred multiple patients to the Clinic's Rheumatology practice. He is wonderful and a real asset to the Clinic.

I am somewhat routine. I have been seeing my doctor for a long time. However, on this occasion I have a note with several items to review and the Fellow and Staff doctor never made me feel rushed. I was impressed.

Reviewed on Feb 26, 2016

I cannot say enough about Dr. Mandell's knowledge, professionalism, care and concern and overall expertise as a doctor and care giver. He is exceptional and by far the most caring and concerned doctor I have ever had.
