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 11/4/2019, Dr. Ray 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.

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.

Unfortunately, Dr. Ray was not the GI I should have been scheduled with. While she was kind enough to counsel me about some of my issues, she informed me that I needed a General GI. She was kind enough to suggest a couple of them at Willoughby Hills Family Center which is closer to my home.

Dr. Monica Ray is excellent. Before her, I had doctors attending to my particular problem, but they hadn't identified or recognized the whole picture. Dr. Ray did. She's personable, gracious, answers questions, offers information, so that now I know the whole picture and where I am in my medical situation. For me, Dr. Ray and the swallowing clinic is where I should have been sent to from the beginning.

Dr. Monica Ray was very thorough in her care for me. She listened which led to a correct diagnosis. I am very great full and would highly recommend her. It was very refreshing to have her as my doctor. She was very knowledgeable and trated me for something that had been increasingly getting worse over a period of 10 years. Other doctors just repeated the same tests and told me that they could not help me. Dr. Monica Ray did not do that. I am very grateful and pleased with the care that she provided.
