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 11/2/2020, Dr. Kriegler 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.

Dr. Kriegler and her medical student did a great job! I've never had a doctor actually want me to follow the path of my headaches from childhood on. She clearly respected my struggles and my knowledge of myself. It seems that she was doing a good job of instilling this attitude in her student as well.

There arent enough positive words to describe just how great Dr. Kriegler is. Her compassion is unbelievable and her willingness to help with any questions or concerns far exceeds that of other physicians. She has always been and still is an integral part of keeping me alive and I am so grateful and blessed to have her as my physician. She takes the time to collaborate with my other physicians to ensure my healthcare all around and that has been a saving grace In many instances and kept me alive. In today's society, it seems that a person's healthcare has become lost and nothing more than a number code on a physicians schedule. Thank God Dr. Kriegler sees me as more than just a number or a cash cowpaycheck. She sees me as a person, with a name. She wants to help and I'm confident placing my health within her hands

I liked that Dr. Kriegler said she reviewed my records prior to coming in. she was prepared. she gave me treatment options I didn't know I had. she offered me time to ask questions and at the end , she said we needed to have a PLAN for if or when this kind of episode would happen again. I LIKED that forward thinking. I couldn't ask for more, she gave me HOPE.
