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.

I think very highly of Dr Khan. I feel she cares about me and I don't want to disappoint her in not doing better with my blood glucose. She switched me to Jardiance from Metformin due to stomach issues. I am so thankful. I had a bad stomach and she told me she thought it could be Metformin when I told her I wanted off the Jardiance. It has changed my life. She cares about her patients and encourages them to make healthy choices.

It can be maddening trying to contact my provider's office directly. It seems that CCF is purposely using its automated phone system to discourage communication. Not at all a fan. As both a patient and a clinician needing to contact CCF providers it rarely if ever takes less than 15-20 minutes to talk to the person to whom I need to speak
