Industry Relationships

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.

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.

thanks I went to see Dr Garrow because when I'd taken my daughter there he was so thorough and caring that I was sure he could help me. He treated me the same way and I would recommend him without reservation.

Dr Garrow is wonderful, he values my opinion and respects my input regarding my health care

Reviewed on Oct 7, 2019

Dr. Garrow is the finest physician I have had over the course of the last ten years of medical nightmares. He is an extraordinary example of what being a healer should encompass-compassion and concern for the whole person, not a symptom.

Reviewed on Aug 30, 2019

Dr. Garrow is thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and caring. He listens to his patients. I am grateful to have him as my doctor.

Reviewed on Jun 20, 2019

After seeing Dr. Garrow two times for follow up on breathing issues from pneumonia and sepsis, I still had the impression my situation was an annoyance to him. I felt that he was condescending and thought I should know how recovery from this would go. I have explained an ongoing breathing issue that is concerning to me but is not familiar to him but no testing has been done.

Reviewed on Apr 29, 2019

dr Garrow was condescending and arrogant and less than helpful. the staff did not give me any instructions as far a I should not have taken my meds prior to lung function test. After my first visit last year, no one would get back to me when I needed a refill for my medicine to find that dr garrow was on vacation for the week. This office and provider seem unorganized.

provider was very arrogant and condescending. Nasty attitude.
