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.

Dr. Helguera is a pleasure to interact with. He is always calm, friendly and clear about his diagnosis. He provides background information about my personal health challenges, my current condition and the options for treatment available to me. After explaining the health condition he explained, as he has In the past, three treatment options and patiently responded to my questions about the specific pro's and con's and probable outcomes of each. He did not, again, as he did not In the past, recommend a specific option. After the discussion and my selection of the treatment I felt most positive about, he concurred that my decision was sound and in his professional opinion probably the best course of action. Most Important from this patient's point of view Is that Dr. Helguera Is clear In explaining his diagnosis and has patience while listening to and answering the patient's questions until a decision Is made by the patient that he as the doctor supports. Dr. Helguera Is current on related research and the latest treatment protocals. He Instills patient confidence and trust that the best care Is being provided. At 77 years of age, with over 25 years of cardiac related care and multiple doctors as a frame of reference, I put Dr. Helguera at the top because of his knowledge, temperment, communication skills and patience.
