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 10/24/2021, Dr. Salay 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.

The only thing that kind of bothered me is that after office visit when I was walked out of room with my doctor she showed me where to go (to make following appt), but I never heard any official good bye from her because I would of said It back. It may sound silly but I guess I'm used to that as being the ending farewell of my appointment. This was the first time. It just made me feel like there was something else she was going to do or say (which I questioned for a moment but then realized it was over.)This is very slight of any bit of a bad experience but the question was asked.

I just did not get a warm, caring feeling from Dr. Salay. All I got was questions and constant clicking on the computer. I didn't feel any real concern or interest other than the mandatory questions she had to ask. I'm new in the area and am looking for a warm, caring primary care dr. but I guess that's only in commercials.

Dr Salay is a treasure. She is truly a compassionate problem-solver. She is very patient and I feel very fortunate to have her as my PCP. I am 70 yrs old and I have found deminishing respect from my providers..not so with Dr. Salary..she listens and never diminishes me or "talks down" to me. This means so much to me. The Clinic is very lucky to have Dr. Salary on their staff. She is an intelligent and inspirational healer.
