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 3/21/2018, 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 very thorough in her assessments and walks each patient out to the desk. i know my visits will be late because she takes the time to do these things.

waiting almost an hour is disrespectful to patients. after 20 minutes of waiting in the lobby, I asked how much longer. The response from the receptionist was she didn't know, she just knew there was one other person in front of me before we even got called back. I asked once we're back, about how long do we wait. She couldn't answer that. so I asked, how soon could I get in to reschedule...response was 1 1/2 months out. So we had to decide to wait. once we got back, the nurse & the doctor were rude to me because I was the one that complained. They were fine to my daughter, which she even said was awkward.

See previous comments. I couldn't be more disappointed in the staff & doctor.

this was my first visit with Dr Bicanovsky. she is awesome! I wish I would have switched years ago. She listened to my issues and explained everything clearly. I felt much calmer when I left her office.

I have always felt comfortable and completely safe with *Dr. B. She is like a friend. I'm truly grateful for the care she gives me.
