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 1/2/2018, Dr. Elzawawy 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.

Meeting with Dr. Elzawawy was great -- it just happened WAY to long after the fact and after much suffering.

Very caring Fellow doctor who took a lot of time going over my history. The Dr. Elzawawy was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and caring. I am a geriatric health care manager. I view Cleveland Clinic Weston with the utmost respect. I recommend many of my clients to seek care from doctors who practice there. I found this group to meet my expectations of the superiority of Cleveland Clinic. Highly recommend.

Not written down why he feels this way, it was done while walking out, in passing while handing me literature to read on my own. Over 5 years of wanting an answer to what is happening to my life..... a person treated me like a machine. He verbally telling me who to follow up with while Im still trying to wrap my head around what he's telling me....Here let me give you your life long sentence in passing....it was shocking and demeaning. The behavior made me feel I should not believe the diagnosis.

one of worst uncaring drs I have ever been to.

This healthcare provider has no bed side manners. He has no empathy whatsoever for his patients at least he had none with me. He diagnosed me with Scleroderma and told me that this was/ can be a very painful disease. He said that I can die in six months or 10 years and that there is no treatment or cure. When I asked questions, he responded that he was not God. This was probably the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. At this point I am not questioning the knowledge of this doctor, however I definately question his ability to be human to his patients. Furthermore he seems to act like they are numbers and not persons he is dealing with. He has zero sensitivity. He would not go into detail about the disease until further symptoms come out. When I spoke to my internist about it, he was surprised as well. When my relatives did further research we found that there was more information he could have given us and he just did not care to. I am horrified at my experience with this man that calls himself a doctor. He belongs in a lab doing research and not dealing with people.
