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.

Dr. Bogard is an extremely kind surgeon. He explains everything that will take place so I knew exactly what to expect. Before the OP surgery his team came in to introduce themselves to me and I felt I was in very capable and caring hands. I also appreciate the fact that he says a little prayer before you leave the holding area. I was told that If I had any questions or concerns over the weekend to call without hesitation. I also received a call on Monday after surgery asking me how I was feeling and If I had questions. I highly recommend Dr. Bogard and the OP Surgery area In Avon.

Getting an appointment online was a new experience but fairly easy to navigate. I received a text and e-mail confirmation for the appointment, but unfortunately the appointments were for two different offices. A phone call easily fixed this issue. The staff was courteous and timely. Dr. Bogard was extremely courteous, approachable, knowledgeable, and helpful about my issue. I salute him for his professionalism and demeanor.
