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 11/6/2018, Dr. Lavery 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. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

Colo-rectal procedures can be quite invasive/embarrassing; Dr. Lavery is ALWAYS very professional, kind, calm, and helpful. His explanations are precise and thorough; he answers all questions and addresses all of my health concerns. Because of his surgical skill, I have a quality of life I thought I would never have in retirement. I can travel globally without worrying. He makes me feel reassured that any issues can be handled....and he has always done that I could not have selected a better surgeon and a kinder human being.

Minimal wait time. I accept the fact that Dr. Lavery may need to spend extra time with another patient; he has definitely spent extra time with me when necessary.

Dr. Lavery's office actually called me the day before my scheduled CT scan, which was scheduled for 10:00 a.m. My follow-up appointment with Dr. Lavery was at 3:30 p.m. that same day. Rather than have me wait all day, they told me to come up to Dr. Lavery's office immediately after my CT. By doing this, I was able to see Dr. Lavery before Noon instead of waiting until 3:20 p.m. I was so appreciative of them doing that for me because I was able to get back to Erie PA where I live by 2:00 p.m.!That was so thoughtful of them!

I was extremely disappointed he had not reviewed my medical records prior to the appointment. While he refused to answer a question bc he had only known me 10 min., he gave me an opinion that was very definitive. He asked no questions about the quality of life I expected or other factors on the other option I had. He was patient and considerate. Given the root of my problem, I was disappointed that I was not referred to specialists in that area. Everyone has talked about the team approach at CC but there seemed to be one dr for me. thank you
