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 9/7/2017, Dr. Martyn 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.

if this is about Dr. Shari Martyn, she was awful. The woman did not wear a white coat, had no smile or facial expression, was perfunctory and brusque. She looked sounded and acted bored and burned out. At least she spritzed her hands with alcohol before she sat down to the EHR. She never asked if I had questions. She only looked at me from behind the instruments she was using to perform the examination . She told me to come back in 2 years or maybe one year. The care summary is a joke. No where did it mention my eye pressures, my visual acuity scores, the status of my retinal arteries or my macula's condition. Fortunately I wrote them down. The summary does not even say why I was being seen. What a waste of paper. You need to fix it because the care summary is useless as a recollection of events in my medical interactions with Cleveland Clinic. It is obviously written by the EHR , not a real person.

Dr. Martin was so wonderful. It was such a pleasure meeting her and having her examine my eye. She gave me a lot of good advice. She was very patient and held my hand while the "nice and patient" male nurse assistant took the pressure of my eye. I have a hard time when the pressure of my eye is taken. Dr. Martin is so great and I would seen here agsun and I recommended her to 2nof my family members.

Dr. MARTIN is an awesome eye doctor. Besides corrective lens, eyeglasses, family issue of diabetes, my high blood pressure and age are the reason why I visit Dr. MARTIN annually. She has compassion for my health concerns and is supportive in my quest for maintaining good health.

I scheduled this appointment as a follow up for a medication as well as to have an insurance form signed to continue taking this medication. I was told my regular doctor was booked for several months, but that Dr. Martin had appointments available. When I told Dr. Martin I needed to have the form completed she told me it was a waste of her time and that she could have seen another patient in the time it took her to complete the form. Her demeanor was extremely impatient and made me feel very unwelcome. I felt like I could not ask her some of the heath related questions I had regarding my condition. It was one of the most unpleasant patient experiences I have every had.
