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 did not discuss Long Covid as a possible reason for my symptoms. It is clear that Covid started my symptoms. I asked What is the connection between COVID and my symptoms? He would only say that "we are working to learn more about this." Other health care organizations seem to know much more about this than CLE Clinic.
