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 1/2/2017, Dr. Olansky 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.

I was seen quickly, and although this provider felt that my issue would be better solved with a dermatologist rather than an endocrinologist, she ordered all the blood work that she thought could possibly point to a cause of my problem. She asked many questions, listened, and was willing to help with the diagnosis by ordering blood work.

Doctor was not prepared or familiar with my history , did not know I was new patient with new problem . She told me to continue my medication , asked if I needed refills - I'm not on any medication for this problem yet.

She acted like she was performing me a favor, wasn't very attentive, I was the only person finishing an appointment at the time.

While I appreciate the questions asked by Dr. Olansky wrt to my symptoms, she offered little insight as to what she thought might be causing them and when pressed to explain, she suggested a diagnosis without explanation and did not help me put into context why THAT diagnosis was more correct than other possible explanations. She also seemed to show little concern for my Hashimoto's and offered no way to find out about the results of my bloodwork or what the follow-up would be if it wasn't thyroid related (since I was tested for many things). I felt disregarded - like I should have known she might not be the right dr for me to see but didn't take the time to point me in the right direction.

This was an intake appmt with Dr. Olansky, a very warm, pleasant, professional and thorough experience. Looking forward to working with her. She was concerned about my weight loss .I explained some loss of appetite following surgery and my efforts to lose weight. She complimented me on my efforts.

Dr. Olansky is an excellent coach for my type 1 diabetes care, and understands how my adrenal deficiency medication causes high blood sugar. She is aware of and responsive to treatment I'm receiving at the clinic for other chronic conditions.
