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. Hsich is always very patient and thorough at explaining everything to me and listens to my concerns to help me take best care of my heart issues. She has a very high level of compassion for her patients.

dr Hsich was considerate of me, my historical providers and suggesting future activities.

Reviewed on Jun 18, 2018

DR. Hsich seemed rushed and unwilling to talk about my current status and any plans (or not) for the future. Usually she has been willing to answer all questions this time she was not as forthcoming as she has been in the past. Considering the state of my CAV at this point I feel more than a bit ill-at-ease (put off) about the whole situation.

Dr. Hsish is an absolute gem! She is familiar with my case, works hard to stay informed, and has been a source for motivation in recovery. She is probably the best provider we could have found. She's great.
