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.

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.

dr, Rex does an amazing job in caring for my bad knee.

Very kind, considerate and compassionate.

Reviewed on Nov 17, 2016

The doctor respectfully listened. I had several questions, and she addressed each one thoroughly. She was interested in my overall health, especially recent issues with liver and thyroid and a virus, and overseas travel, and explained about taking OTC pain relievers with respect to each.

Reviewed on Nov 9, 2016

I was disappointed that she referred me to her husband who is also not a podiatrist. I need someone who knows about feet!

Reviewed on Jun 3, 2016

Dr Anne made certain that i would get an MRI on my first visit - that says a lot of her concern and thoroughness. I am very happy that she made time for my appointment and that i am in her care.
