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.

This was my first visit to this endocrinologist. I was seeing one at ACMC but they left and I went looking for a new doctor. Willoughby is still not convenient to my home but it was better than having to drive all the way to downtown Cleveland. This doctor was outstanding and I found things out that were not clear before about my diabetes condition and options that were not given to me before.

I have a history of thyroid cancer and am concerned about recurrence. Dr. Khan had not reviewed my test result history to appreciate the significant changes that were occurring in my TG level, and I had to point that out to her. Dr. Khan could not offer no further explanation for why those changes might be occurring after noting that the most likely cause had been eliminated (negative neck ultrasound). Dr. Khan was not familiar with my tumor pathological history. It seemed that I was the only one concerned about my TG level and she could not tell me why there was nothing to be concerned about.

I didn't feel like my concerns were adressed. I came in with certain things I needed to talk about and I felt her resident knew more about what was going on than her. She came in towards the end of the appointment and it seemed like she didn't know what I was there for. She told me to eat better and exercise. I felt dismissed and honestly hurt that my concerns weren't addressed.
