Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

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.

Dr Dale is a treasure, not just for Cleveland but for the planet. He and his staff Marilyn and Linda are true life savers. I can not imagine where I would be without them. Dr Dale is brilliant and yet humble. He always gives me his full attention and makes me feel like I'm his only patient. He knows how to articulate what I'm experiencing with only a few indications from me. The fact that he specializes in existential issues is a huge plus. The only anxiety I have is the thought of what will happen when he retires. I cannot imagine anyone coming close to his level of intuition, compassion, knowledge, integrity, and experience. I am extremely grateful that I am still a patient of his and I attribute all my progress in developing a more stable mental life to him. Marilyn and Linda show just as much concern and together I feel like I'm visiting beloved family members not seeing the doctor.

Dr Dale is extremely knowledgeable about all the latest treatments both medicinal and cognitive. Recently, I was having a spring manic episode and I didn't even have an appointment however he rearranged his schedule to see me that very day. Prescribed just the right medication and brought things back into balance within a few weeks.
