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 1/17/2021, Dr. Schneider 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.

Reviewed on Jul 27, 2021

Firstly, I think Dr.Schneider is amazing. She is approachable and seems to care about her patients. However, I felt she has gotten so busy that it took a long time before she was able to see me after my procedures to go over findings/diagnosis and treatment plan. I had to talk to her PA first and I feel the PA is not very knowledgeable. Secondly, I feel that adequate time should be given to patients to ask their questions and share with their providers their symptoms and health concerns.

Dr. Schneider is outstanding. Three years ago I was "politely persistent" in booking an appt with this highly recommended doctor for a second opinion and was so impressed that she became my primary gastro specialist. This visit was a 6 month regular follow-up visit but since I was recently hospitalized for a cardiac episode she reviewed the discharge specifics and considered all the info in discussing my gastro care going forward (meds, options and timing for colonoscopy, etc.). As a senior citizen with a few specialists Dr. Schneider is the best at communicating, considering my overall health picture, and professionalism.
