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 2/7/2024, Dr. Taliercio 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.

Dr. Rachel Talercio is by far the best pulmonologist that I have ever been to! I have seen a number of pulmonologists throughout my life, who were never able to control my asthma symptoms. I had been suffering since I was five years old, and I am now almost 62 years of age. Dr. Talercio is an exceptional physician! She is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, competent, caring, friendly, personable, and the list goes on! She really listens and takes the time to understand my symptoms and overall condition.

Dr T is a wonderful, caring provider that takes her time and actually listens to me. I told her about my migraines and how my CT scan showed more white matter lesions and the provider did not review with me or explain. Just said everything was fine. Dr T sent a message to someone and I received a call the next day to see a neurologist who was wonderful and explained everything and has a whole new treatment plan for me. I absolutely love Dr T and my new neurologist (I will provide details on her when I receive w her survey) please do not let Dr T ever leave!!!

I dislike the term "provider". The physician I saw spent over an hour with me on a Friday afternoon. She knew my history & showed me specific elements in my various tests to explain her recommendations for further consults with specialists. She told me my condition was chronic but that the severity of my symptoms can be reduced. She did all this with the highest level of professionalism & knowledge while at the same time expressing deep empathy. After 2 years of searching & seeing specialists of several disciplines, she gave me hope. I could not have wished for or had a better experience.
