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 5/15/2017, Dr. Barzilai 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 staff and experience under Dr. Barzalai stands out tremendously among the other departments I have dealt with. I have seen Vascular, Neuro, Heart, Auto Immune and a number of different tests performed. Dr. Barzalai and his staffs level of service provided is light years ahead of the others. I feel as though I am an actual person rather than a number and they persistently do as they say they are going to do rather than feeling as though the only way to get anything done is to hound them myself, which is how I feel with the majority other departments to date.

Dr. Barzilai always listens to my concerns and answers all of my questions. I live out of town and he has always returned my call when I have a question or concern. Dr. Barzilai is very knowledgeable and I believe he makes recommendations on what's best for my overall health.

Dr. B. treated me as a valuable person who was included in my own health choices. Yet, he was totally realistic about future concerns that will need to be addressed. He has decades of medical experience, which made me feel that he is a perfect medical match for me.

Dr. Barzilai is outstanding. I was referred to Cleveland Clinic because of a unique heart condition and he definitely will work to provide me assistance. He listened to me and was very good about explaining my tests, etc.
