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.

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 Peereboom seemed to read my chart for the first time while in the room. He was not present for tumor board, he only admitted that when asked, and seemed generally unprepared for the consult. He entered the room recommending I run a 5k for brain tumor research and 5 minutes later recommended brain surgery as soon as possible, which signaled to us that he was not prepared on me specifically, which translates into not feeling cared about.

Dr. Peereboom is an excellent doctor. He is knowledgeable and caring. TheCleveland Clinic is a superior operating hospital. It's a well oiled machine with excellent staff including nurses and doctors, technicians and receptionists. It is well staffed.

Dr. Peereboom is a consummate professional of whom I think highly.

Reviewed on Apr 11, 2024

I am not sure the video conference is always the best for the Dr evaluations of the patient. As a care giver, I need to make sure I convey as many details as possible to the Dr before the call to make sure they can access the patient properly. I think it is sometimes best for the Dr to see for themselves in person how the patient is doing. I must make sure we are very prepared before the call to give as many details as possible for the Dr to assess the patients condition. I know the Dr is very busy and needs to see lots of patients also, so we need to be fair with his time as well.
