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 2/17/2017, Dr. Mayer 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.

dr. Mayer has always been an excellent caregiver and has kept me healthy and always treated me with the utmost respect as an individual and patient thank you

I have NEVER felt like Dr. Mayer rushed through an appointment or was preoccupied during an appointment!

Reviewed on Dec 22, 2016

Dr. Mayer is one of the best physicians I have ever seen for care. He was extremely thorough in taking a complete medical history and performing a physical examination, and was very clear in his evaluation and diagnosis. He and his office staff also went above and beyond in their efforts to secure me two same day diagnostic evaluations that were important for diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, Dr. Mayer personally phoned me the day after my appointment to provide me with complete follow-up information. I truly appreciate the time that Dr. Mayer spent with me (particularly after I made a last-minute appointment) and the care that he showed me. He is an excellent physician.

Dr. Mayer is a premier physician. He listens, is well informed, offers options and does a thorough medical exam. If you can clone him, PLEASE DO SO! The Clinic is fortunate to have him on staff and his patients even more so. I can only imagine how much is residents learn, the art and the science.
