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.

I didn't have much contact with the doctor this time, but 4 years ago at Marymount, for an emergency re-do of my colonoscopy Dr. Bhatt really impressed me on all the above points, coming to my room and talking with me for what seemed like a very generous length of time, and being very imformative and supportive. Things were running late this time but he did take the time to come in to tell me the results of the procedure after in was awake. In my experience colonoscopies seem unusual in that I have never had contact with the doctor in advance. I was so impressed with Dr. Bhatt that first time, that I went to great lengths to have him do the procedure this time.

My experience has been excellent since day one. I live five hours away in Syracuse NY and Margaret O'Malley has been absolutely wonderful. From the very beginning she arranged my appointments with both Dr Bhatt and Dr Walsh not knowing which direction my care would go. I arrived feeling confident that I was already in great hands moving forward and that there was a clear plan for my care. Thank you! Pamela DeLucia
