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 8/21/2017, Dr. Culver has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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.

Nothing is left to chance with Dr. Culver. He is very easy to talk to. Explains things. He just doesn't tell me what to do; we discuss decisions about my care.

Dr. Culver was respectful, kind and professional, during my appointment! He encouraged me, more than once, to ask questions and be sure I understood his instructions. This office visit was an excellent experience!

I wanted a second opinion. Dr. Culver was prepared and listened intently. We had a conversation rather than a lecture. He was encouraging and clear in a course of action and helped me become more comfortable with my diagnosis.

Dr. Culver was clear about choices and engaged me to learn my thoughts about various options. He listened carefully and understood my concerns about the options.

While, I think the provider is excellent, I do not think follow-up is too good here. For instance, I had a sptum sample go to the lab during my visit and have yet to hear back on results after 9 days.

I am aware that Dr. Culver is in high demand for appointments and that it does take time to schedule time with him.

The price of one of my medications is extremely high (even with insurance), and both Dr. Culver & Joanne took the time to look up information so I could get the medication I needed at a reduced price. The alternative medications are as expensive as the name brand.

I felt extremely lucky and privileged to be under Dr Culver's care. He is thorough in explaining all aspects of my care and test results, even incidences of abnormalities that were not part of the original diagnosis. His conversation with me was respectful and thorough. I felt I had a clear understanding of my situation after talking with him. He gave me adequate time for all my questions and consultation. I did not feel rushed. I felt I was in the care of the best doctor I could possibly have.

again, the Doctor and his staff were outstanding. So too were those who administered the tests on me. I believe I received the very best in health care services. I learned much about my condition, and I believe the treatment and advice I received will prove most effective. the Doctor asked many insightful questions and listened carefully to the answers my wife and I provided. the Doctor radiated competence, empathy and confidence.
