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 4/30/2019, Dr. Cho has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

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. Cho never really spoke to me personally and during the angiogram asked me to not speak. I think she's amazing but bedside manner was a bit tough.
Reviewed on Apr 26, 2019
Dr Cho is apparently excellent in her field. I think I was thrown int the mix unexpectedly and she must have been tired. I tried to ask question and explain pain but was told not to talk. she spent very little time with my husband. 3 minutes. Again, I hear she is amazing but perhaps it was a bad day! overall Cleveland Clinic is amazing!

dr did not remember me or even know I was a previous patient (she had access to my records but obviously had not gone over them). she was short, abrasive, and judgmental. she was dismissive and curt when asked questions, implying that I was dumb for worrying about something I didn't understand. l am an educated compliant patient who was made to feel like a bothersome child. needless to say, I will be searching for a new dr.

Doctor not a good listener nor did she ask questions that would have put us on the same page. I wanted to discuss the potential and process of going on new medication for cholesterol (Rapatha) as I react to statins. she assumed I was there to start the process. When our communication broke down she held to her conclusions about why I was there rather than working collabortively with me to clear up an obvious communication issue. Very condensending and rude in her communication with me.

I can not tell you how wonderful I think Dr Cho is. Without her, I am not sure I would still be here. She is the best doctor and every adjective that describes anything wonderful. I love her dearly and will send my children and anyone who needs a cardiologist to her. Dr. Cho is the best and I am an old nurse. so I know.

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Cho. The only problem is that she is always booked up so I have to start making my appointment with her 3 months in advance.

I am so impressed with the expertise of the Cleveland Clinic doctors I've met with. And I again underline the positive constructive behavior of all your staff- administrative and medical assistants to the doctors. If Cleveland clinic can accomplish this, then our hospitals here should be able to also. I appreciate kindness and helpfulness. Thanks so much.,
