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 5/16/2017, Dr. Jaeger 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.

very good experiences

The only bad part was the wait time to see the doctor but I do know they can get behind with patients. When a doctor will spend time answering your questions and not act like he is in a hurry its well worth the wait.

Reviewed on Nov 18, 2016

Dr. Jaeger spends time reviewing my mothers history, talking directly to her and give explanations that she understands (she is 92). He always makes her feel that he personally cares about her and her health. My mother feels he is the best doctor.

Reviewed on Nov 4, 2016

I am looking forward to meeting with the provider in the very near future to execute the medical plan he and I agreed to during this visit.

Reviewed on Sep 28, 2016

I was hoping for more info about implant and diagnosis, as well as returning to previous level of activity/exercise. Doctor seemed rushed (he was running behind schedule which we understand) and we had to let him know we had some questions. He responded well to this and sat down again. however, we then held back on some of our questions and left a bit frustrated.
