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.

Dr. Chatterjee is the best in the business for my Scleroderma and associated diseases. I look forward to seeing him, he is always upbeat even when we face challenges together.

Reviewed on Jun 6, 2018

My PCP recommended a specialist, but most of the appointments were 2-3 months away, and I needed to be seen as soon as possible. I tried to get appointments with several doctors before a kind appointment specialist found one for me (the only reason I got one was because of a cancellation). There is just too long a wait to see a doctor.

Provider said if labs normal no need for follow up. After eight months of waiting, a diagnosis of "not it", take your pain and leave. No solution. No advice on next step. Just too bad for you. As a physician, very disappointing. For me to ask for help-and find time to get it is huge. I am left at square one.
