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 11/29/2021, Dr. Weight 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.

We checked in at 2:23 for my 3:00 appt. The nurse greeted us in the waiting area (8-2), took my 2 disks, copied them, and gave them back to me within 15 minutes.My appt with Dr. Weight was scheduled for 3;00; we were invited in at 4:00. We had a good, open, and helpful dialogue about treatment options, with a clear description of the risks of surgery (which was helpful). After 45 minutes, the doctor excused himself to check on the disks and informed us that they were finished yet (although they were handed back to me an hour earlier. He also said that he would need the pathology report before he could give a clear recommendation. I had the local cancer center fax 6 pages of pathology information to Dr. Weight the afternoon of the 24th, and they were received that day. It is now 6 days later, and I haven't heard from Dr. Weight as to his treatment recommendatdions. Therefore, I'm moving on. Sorry!

So far my impression of the Cleveland Clinic experience has been all positive. From my initial contact with staff for second opinions to securing my surgeon as a result from my first consultation. I was worried my doctor would have forgotten my specific situation to the staff reaction to me choosing a date for surgery. My doctor and staff were able to access all of my prior information thru My Chart. My Chart has allowed all of us to make informed decisions and to be "on the same page." Dr. Weight had the right demeanor to help me make my final decision to have him as my surgeon.
