Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

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 2/28/2023, Dr. Bicanovsky 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.

Dr.B is easy to talk to and explains my health situation in a way I can understand. Greeted with a smile and walked me to the front desk. She Is one of my favorite doctors.

Reviewed on Apr 14, 2023

Ive used Dr. B for a long time and really have always liked her but this issue I was having I felt she brushed off. I didnt feel well informed on the next steps or that she cared at all what my issue was. She never asked me any questions regarding it in person and I almost felt like she was upset with me for changing my plan of treatment. I have decided to see a new physician due to this. I cant fault her 100 percent, I feel like the Clinic seems to be wearing down a lot of our physicians but that should NOT impact patients concerns/care.

Reviewed on Mar 27, 2023

I very much enjoy Dr. B and I believe she has my wellness as a whole in mind. She mentioned high blood pressure in a phone call after my appointment and it led me to take it more seriously and take action with my PCP. I truly appreciate her taking the initiative to follow up with me with concern about my health. I can't say enough good things about Dr. B. She's great!
