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 7/29/2023, Dr. Kuenzler 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.

My Dr. Was one of a kind. She was so professional yet so kind and considert of my comfort.

Reviewed on May 1, 2024

Within two minutes of meeting Dr. Kuenzler I knew I was in good hands. After being healthy for 46 years my body decided to fall apart. As a result, I've seen my share of doctors and along the way I've even been misdiagnosed a few times, so I'm always cautious. Dr. Kuenzler's knowledge of neuroscience is undeniable and her kindness during and after my visit was second to none. As soon as my results became available in MyChart she messaged me to explain what it meant . I honestly can't express how perfect she made my otherwise stressful visit to your clinic, but one thing's for sure, if I ever have another issue I will be back to see her.One last note, this was my first visit to the Cleveland Clinic, and considering how prestigious your facility is, I kind is expected a very professional "SuperHero" type of doctor that had all the answers and essentially knew what my diagnosis would be before the biopsy even came back. She did. In fact, she nailed it perfectly.

Dr. Kuenzler was very knowledgeable and caring. She set up appointments with the resources relevant to my condition.

Specialist appointments at Cleveland Clinic require waits of many months. This puts patients in a position where their medical problems get worse while waiting to see a physician. Fortunately I got into the ALS team quickly, but only because there was a cancellation.

Dr Kuenzler took the time to listen and answer my and my wife's questions. She did a more through exam and evaluation than others providers I have seen. She explained what she was and wasn't seeing. She gave definative answers upon completion of her exam, where other providers wouldn't say yes or no.

Dr. Rebecca Kuenzler, MD deserves ALL of her 5 Starts should be 10. VERY compassionate, interested, great at explaining everything she was doing or testing, checked from top of head to toe nails. VERY thorough, did tests we've never had or seen before. Not sure what his medical problems are yet, but she ordered 13 blood tests he's never had before & we'll go from there. Waiting for her to review the blood work results & MRI pictures being sent from Mercy Health St Elizabeth. Then maybe after 8 long years we can finally get an answer. Do believe she will find one.
