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 11/19/2018, Dr. Ghazoul 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.

My daughter is in counseling for anxiety - it felt like this turned into the main focus for her yearly physical. Although I and my daughter repeatedly said that we felt like we had a good handle on things, medications were brought up multiple times and when I was asked to step out of the exam room my daughter said she felt like she was being barraged with questions about her anxiety and even though she said counseling was working well for her she was continually pressed about it. At no point did the Dr. have a private conversation with me about things, so I am not sure what the goal was. It was very awkward and uncomfortable. My daughter said that if she had been able to see her regular Dr. that she felt it wouldn't have been such an attack. Unfortunately the way appts are scheduled now, it is very hard to get in to see the Dr. that my children have a "relationship" with. Both of my kids commented that they were not pleased with this most recent visit.
