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.

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.

Saw Dr. Walters 9 months post op. a year ago to obtain a second opinion from complications. He was very thorough at that time and explained everything in a precise manner. 23 months post op., I was finally discharged from the original surgeon but I was left questioning a few things. I was able to see Dr. Walters again who examined me and provided me with information that gave me peace of mind.

I called the provider to setup an appointment for annual gyn exam and mammogram within one hour of one another. The mammogram was timely but when I went to the gynecology department they told me there was no appt setup. Eventuallt the receptionist spoke with the doctors secretary who found the appointment in a holding section.

Dr. Walters is an excellent doctor. From the first time I met him, I was very comfortable in his presence. He helped me with my health issues, answered all my questions and took time to really listen. That's what stands out the most, he listens. I would highly recommend him.
