Industry Relationships

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.

As of 9/22/2020, Dr. Shook 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.

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. 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.

Dr. Shook is an exceptionally kind and patient doctor. He never made me feel rushed and he was willing to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend him to others.

Reviewed on Sep 9, 2020

Dr Shook was phenomenal. He spent well over our appointment time slot listening to me and reviewing my chronic illness history to come up with a comprehensive plan of care and testing. He is what other doctors should strive to be, caring, patient, respectful, and compassionate. He is knowledgeable and I feel as though he understands my symptoms and trust him without question to guide me in the right direction. For the first time in several years, he gave me hope. Absolutely phenomenal and very much looking to getting better with his care.

My experience with Dr Shook, was pleasant. He, listened to hear what I was saying not just to respond. I have difficulting explaining myself, Dr. Shook was very patient with me and for that I appreciate him

Reviewed on Jun 3, 2020

Dr. Shook was the first doctor to show me the images of my back and explain the damage to my nerves. He also fully explained every recommended diagnostic procedure and medication. He really took time to ask me what my symptoms were and he looked at my walking, standing, my feet and legs all on video.

Reviewed on Jun 1, 2020

Dr. Shook's appointment was outstanding. I felt he took the time to learn about my nerve issues and daily challenges.

Not being a technical giant, I had an issue signing in but Dr. Shook was very patient with me and we finally could communicate with each other.

he was a very nice doctor

Reviewed on Jan 27, 2020

Dr. Shook's approach to my admittedly complex health issues was the most impressive consult I've ever experienced. He did his homework on my case before I came for my appointment and was able to facilitate access to complex genetic testing that I didn't know was available to ascertain a diagnosis. I am retired from the health care industry and can say with a truly critical and experienced eye that Dr. Shook is a credit to his profession.
