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 1/4/2024, Dr. Patel 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. Patel is amazing. He takes the time to explain everything to you with ease. He listens. Genuinely cares. Never acts rushed. We had a 30 min appt for my son, and he spent almost an hour talking with us. I am a nurse at the clinic and it's rare for me to see a provider spend this much time with their patients. His whole outpatient team that helped us was great with communication, from in-person to MyChart and I appreciate all of them.

Dr. Patel was truly amazing throughout this entire process. He communicated clearly with us. He took the time to answer our questions and concerns and never once rushed through any part of the process. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel to any family looking for a pediatric cardiologist. I have never in my life encountered a Doctor Who cares so much about his patient and the patient's family.

Both of my children had appts. w/*Dr. Akash Patel the same day. The radiologist reported that my daughter had an "aorta problem" on her ECHO. I was scared so I emailed *Dr. Patel. *Dr. Patel contacted the radiologist to double check. Turns out radiologist left out the word "no" in front of the "aortic problem". I'm thankful *Dr. Patel looked deeper into this. Our experience w/*Dr. A. Patel has been very positive thus far.
