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 10/20/2018, Dr. Babcox 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.

I really appreciate Dr Babcox's care

Reviewed on Oct 21, 2019

I felt that I was just another number. I received no explanations about my treatment plan. I was handed articles about my diagnosis but felt like someone just slapped me across the face. I am supposed to have an MRI and I was told to be sure to check with my insurance a couple days before having it done to be sure it would be covered. I had to ask what the MRI was being done for on me. I was told I needed to start a medication for prevention of breast cancer but no information was verbally discussed with me. I walked out of the office overwhelmed and confused. I absolutely have been so satisfied with the breast center till that day. I plan on contacting my GP for her opinion. My mother died from breast cancer and for me to encounter an experience as I did at my appointment was a lot to deal with without receiving a personal discussion or conversation regarding my situation. I am sure the doctor is very competent and an expert in her field but if this is how she talks or should I say, does not talk to patients, maybe I need to find someone with more compassion and listening skills. I am sorry to have to write this but I thought someone should be aware-maybe she was just having a bad day.
