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.

the doctor visit was excellent because the doctor took the care and the time to talk to me and answer any questions that I had. the wait time to see the doctor was a little longer then I would have liked but that happens when doctors take extra time with patients who need it. I would definitely visit this facility again.

I totally love doctor chigger and I am so grateful that he is my doctor and I appreciate his care and professionalism

Reviewed on Jan 29, 2020

The allotted time per patient does not allow a doctor to explain, educate,or enlighten a patient regarding the health road ahead. Not his/her fault - just a reality of the almighty dollar.

Doctor was very excellent with helping me understand my problem and shows that he does have a caring personality good work

Reviewed on Jan 13, 2020

I came in as referred by another provider. I left without any plan of care and a promise for a call with more information or some type of feedback. It's been a week now and I still haven't heard anything. I traveled for the appointment and have no additional insight. I am still hopeful he will reach out to finish up the office visit/ evaluation. As a provider that refers complicated cases to Cleveland clinic, I am deflated. I left feeling that I had wasted the travel time, the 2 hr wait, and my money. I did not call to complain as I was hopeful he would keep his word to call once he reviewed more tests and spoke with another provider. it's now a week later and it feels like that is not likely.

Jaeger is awesome. he's very patient. he seems to know when it's best to keep me calm and when to pressure the necessity for high stress tests etc. with dangerous blood pressures getting worse, he calmly asked me if I wanted to stay, and he accepted my no. he kept me from getting upset and reinforced a positive patient doctor bond so that I was reminded in meeting by Dr j that I could trust him.

I have never had a Dr who took the time to thoroughly discuss my history and current issues and create a care plan for me. we drove 3 hours for this appointment and it was worth every second!!

i have been trying to get in touch with my doctor about my results and to discuss any diagnosis and i have been unable to. i really need to know what is going on because it is effecting my health and life

Dr. Jaeger was very thorough and actually gives a damn about me as a patient. I am blessed to be seen by him.

Reviewed on Oct 14, 2019

Dr. Jaeger is a very caring and I believe skilled and experienced Physician. I arrived for my last appointment via wheel chair due to a knee injury sustained that morning, that was not yet diagnosed. he took the time to wheel me back to the waiting area and then insisted that I needed to proceed to the ED immediately and then called for transportation. obviously , taking this additional time to do this put him behind on his afternoon schedule. To me this certainly shows the care that takes place at Cleveland Clinic.

Dr Jaeger tries very hard. I'm glad he's back. he is one of the only drs I've ever met that hears what my condition is and doesn't panic. he is willing to work with me even though I have a rare disorder and am autistic. I truly appreciate him. Dr Jaeger tries and works very hard.
