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 3/10/2020, Dr. Lincoff has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.
Consulting and/or Speaking. Dr. Lincoff receives fees of $5,000 or more per year as a paid consultant, speaker or member of an advisory committee for the following companies:

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.

We live about 3 hours away from Cleveland Clinic. My wife and I both are treated there. This is extremely convenient for us as opposed to taking a very long day to travel there and home. I have been with Dr. Lincoff for many years. He is fantastic.

I had a detailed consultation with the Fellow and then with Dr. Lincoff before the procedure outlining risks, etc. However I was disappointed I didn't have the opportunity for a discussion after the procedures reviewing medications prescribed, potential side effects, dangerous symptoms to watch for, - overall discharge instructions...I did receive handouts which included listing the meds and potential side effects.

Dr. Lincoff said he wished he had more definite answers for me, but actually he did an excellent job of going through my records and answering the questions I brought to him. He also discussed possible future surgery solutions, though high risk, and clarified my use of nitroglycerin - reasons for use, not just for pain control of angina, etc. He helped me understand why my local cardiologist (and he) do not believe I have congestive heart disease--the reason I have been prescribed a diuretic is for swollen ankles and not fluid retention in areas of the heart/lungs.
