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.

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.

very attentive and informing. Dr. George explained everything to me as he sat down on a stool. listened to me and asked if I understood what he told me. he said if the pain came back for me not to ignore it but, to come back. The X-Ray tech was knowledgable and she explained how and why as she worked.

I could not get a timely appointment with my knee replacement surgeon Dr Malloy so I got an appointment with Dr George who I had never seen before. He was put off by my visit and treated me like I didn't belong there. He did analyze the X-rays and assess the current knee joint status. So in the end I got the answer that I was looking for. I'm summary the visit began badly, proceeded with difficulty, but ended satisfactorily.

Arrived early, was told right away that surgery had delayed doctor getting to appointments. Was kept updated on wait time by desk staff; very helpful and pleasant.
