Industry Relationships

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 7/13/2023, Dr. Drerup 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.

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.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

Dr. Dreyup is very easy to talk to and listened to my concerns. She explains things very well, is obviously very knowledgeable about her specialty and had very ideas on how we could make some good progress.

Some visits are better in person. But for purposes of this visit, the video visit was excellent for this visit with Dr. Dreyup.

Michelle has been my therapist for many years (on and off). It's hard to put into words the depth of the impact she has had on my life. It is so hard to find a good therapist, and I am so fortunate to have her as one of mine. She is so easy to talk to, personable, incredibly knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and goes above and beyond for her patients. I never feel like she is watching the clock during my sessions, and she really takes the time to listen to me and to help me come up with things to try to help me wind down in the evening. She has helped me with more than just my sleep struggles. I am truly forever grateful to have found her. The clinic is SO LUCKY to have her working there!

I truly appreciate Dr. Drerup's mannerisms throughout all of our appointments. She patiently listens to my concerns and questions, and then responds in a very pragmatic, sensible and non-alarmist way. I find the appointments to be so reassuring that I am on the right track.

In-person appointments are very personable, but these appointments have worked well, and are very convenient. Dr. Drerup did offer that we could meet in-person if I preferred, and I appreciated being given the option.

Hard to find her to make appt and I had to wait 3 months, and at one point I got a message that there was a cancellation and did I want it? I ligged on to accept-and it was already taken. But she was a great doctor and the time with her, I felt she was very understanding and compassionate.
