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 11/13/2018, Dr. Bogard 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.

Dr. Bogard added me onto his busy schedule following an ER visit the prior day. He also added me on the next day to check out an infection I had. He again saw me at the end of the week before his surgery schedule. Really appreciated his excellent care and concern for me as we were leaving for vacation and he wanted to make sure I would have no medical issues.

Awesome experience. Dr. Bogard explained the various treatments surgically and non surgically. He explained the benefits and risks of the various procedures and why he prefers the open method for hernia repair which is what we decided to have done.

Wait time to get in to see my regular doctor is unrealistic. Appointments are always 2 to 3 months out and registration always wants to put you with someone new. I have had to go outside the clinic to get a doctor appointment. This appointment was an emergency and Dr. Bogard was truly a life saver. I would recommend him and his staff.
