Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

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.

Dr. Joy Rowland is a wonderful podiatrist. She has, for many years, taken care of my feet and all my problems with them. I truly believe that if it wasn't for her care and all her recommendations I would not be able to walk and would be confined to a wheelchair for my mobility.

We talked through quite a few options running the gamut from surgery to medication to taking a "wait and see" approach. I felt fully informed and empowered to make the right decision for me. This is one of the most positive experiences I've ever had with a health care provider, and I am 62 years old. That means I've seen a lot of health professionals in my lifetime.

Good & concerned.
