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 12/30/2021, Dr. Silver 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.

Dr. Silver has been part of my care team for many years...he's a great guy and a great doctor...he's very knowledgeable about HHT, which is a fairly obscure blood disorder...very friendly, very easy to work with, know about all studies/trials and is very patient to make sure I understand answers to questions...he is very gracious with his time, I never feel rushed...I'm grateful to have Dr. Silver as an important part of my care team. I'd add that Carol McDonald that works with Dr. Silver is also fantastic...she is generally who I interact with when I think I need to get bloodwork done and iron infusions ordered...like Dr. Silver, she is accessible, friendly, responsive and great to work with.

Dr Silver was very detailed about my situation, and recommended several more tests. Also, he wanted me to call back 2 days later to discuss the tests and potential cause.

Dr. had no emotion didn't really care that we were there. We have been going through some major health issues and my husband of 48 years said we are going to Cleveland Clinic. it's almost 6 hours away but we have heard when you leave Cleveland you will know what is going on. We felt like all he wanted to do was disagree with the physicians at home.

I had a very terrible experience with Doctor Silver. he came into the room and never introduced himself. He has two disinfect whipss in his hand and before speaking he started wipping everything down. Still not introducing himself. He then looks at my fianc? and questions who he is to me. He wasn't listening to me when I spoke and would cut me off. A few times he got very rude and started to bagger my answers. We drove 4 hours and stayed in a hotel for him to tell me " I would just stick with your current doctor closer to home" I camethere because home has ran out of answers. I'm covered in large bruises that are extremely painful. I realized we made this drive only to be turned away. super sad experience. this Doctor made me cry in the room by the way he handled me. it was like he didn't care about my situation in anyway.
