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 6/9/2020, Dr. Bernard 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.

Dr. Bernard was absolutely wonderful. He was so compassionate about my situation. He is doing a thorough work up to make sure my problem is correctly treated. I appreciated his honesty and kindness during my appointment. Dr. Bernard is actually quite far from my house, but he was the first appointment I could get that worked with my busy schedule. I will continue to make the drive regardless because I know that I'm receiving quality care from him and his staff. He truly listened to my concerns and problems.

I have been to numerous dermatologists and Dr Bernard has been a favorite. However, I was frustrated to find out the prescription he gave me is extremely hard to find in any cleveland clinic pharmacies or retail pharmacies. CC pharmacy informed me the distributor does not have any in stock and they can not order.

The bad always happens after the visit when we are trying to get the medication. Each time we wait for the pharmacy then the medication gets low, so we call the pharmacy. We get told the portion the doctor needs to fill out for the medication has not been done. This needs to stop happening. I'm beginning to feel like the doctor doesn't really care whether we are able to continue the treatment or not.
