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.

Dr. Pohlman was excellent. He mentioned that he will be retiring in alittle over a year and that he is looking at my case to see which oncologist on staff would be best suited to care for me. He also mentioned that he is going to have tests run for my 10 year cancer check and go over results before he retires. This is extremely reassuring to me! He has always given me excellent care and I am sad to be losing him as my doctor but am glad he will be able to retire and enjoy doing things he loves.
