Biography

About Viviane Connor, MD

As an ambulatory gynecologist with extensive surgical experience, I like to emphasize a thorough evaluation of patient concerns in the office, in order to recommend a treatment plan which contains both conservative, non-surgical treatment options, and surgical options.  Frequently this includes an in-office pelvic ultrasound or sonogram, which helps provide the proper information to suggest only the appropriate, effective and safe treatment options.  my areas of special interest include evaluation and management of anormal uterine bleeding, fibroids, and alternatives to hysterectomy.  I emphasize patient education, allowing all patients to participate in their own treatment decisions.

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 8/10/2016, Dr. Connor 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.

Excellent care - getting to so soon - dismissed healthcare so & beyond Dr. Vivian Connor is awesome!!

Reviewed on Feb 28, 2017

I made the appointment with an idea that I might have a yeast infection and the provider said it didn't look like an infection, but she didn't take any samples or swabs to test. I went to Planned Parenthood the next day and it was determined I did have a yeast infection and was prescribed the appropriate medication. It just felt like she should have at least tested for something.

Dr. Connor provides me with excellent medical care. She is always on her "A" game. Thorough & accurate in her exams and treatments. The best doctor I have ever had.

Dr. Viviane Connor explained about the 'My Chart' process. This is a great tool for patient and doctor follow-up communications and test results.

My mammo was abnormal and Dr. Connor never called me. I thought that was unprofessional. I was very worried and she should have known.
