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 11/25/2018, Dr. Ramanathan 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. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

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.

My Dr has always been excellent with any concerns I may have.

I live in Seattle. Dr. Ramanathan's staff ALWAYS accommodates my travel schedule during my Cleveland trips to see family. A+

Doctor was very quick to send me away. He did not really care to listen to my issues and the whole appointment was less than 10 minutes.

Reviewed on Oct 1, 2019

Dr. said he did not think he would be able to help from his stand point,but he did not give up and set me up with a specialist he believed could help.I left the office with an appointment with the specialist he suggested.

Have seen Dr Romanathan for over a year now for my mom's care. I understand he's human and has bad days like everyone else but he was very abrupt and short with my mom and I at her appointment last Tuesday September 24th. It was very obvious that he was rushed and was just pushing us through. This experience left my mom feeling that she no longer wishes to see Dr Romanathan. I feel he is very competent and I do not question him as a physician, but we expected more from a 6 month check up .

Reviewed on Sep 20, 2019

The doctor was informative and answered all of our questions. His demeanor certainly made us feel we wanted him as the doctor of our choice for my procedure

Reviewed on Aug 6, 2019

Very satisfied with the doctor, his nurses and the rest of his staff.

Dr. Ramanathan is an excellent and very thorough Doctor. He takes time to go over tests and gives you a thorough explanation of the results and any follow-up that is necessary. His staff is also experienced and friendly. I would highly recommend him.

I was impressed! Dr R. was thoughtful and made everything very clear! He did not talk down to me while making sure I understood the results and what to do next!

Dr. clearly explained my treatment options, then left the final decision to me.

It is unfortunate that I must say, I cannot recommend anyone to go and be put through what I went through. Outside of my care provider, the other staff were fantastic, but I can't consciously suggest to someone a care provider that might b leave them feeling traumatized.

*Dr. Ramanathan is a wonderful, caring person.

It seemed like the Doctor was in a rush. I would like to have had more information. I thought we would have sat down in his office to discuss what he meant by shaving the prostate gland. What's involved and the risks associated with this process. He might be overbooked?

Reviewed on Mar 29, 2019

Yes for the staff, but not happy with the Doctor.

Reviewed on Mar 12, 2019

Dr. Ramanathan's professionalism, medical skills and bedside manner all give me a great sense of confidence and comfort that my conditions are being treated in the best and most effective ways possible.

Reviewed on Mar 1, 2019

during the appointment I don't feel that dr. Ramanathan was patient, or considerate to our questions and concerns. I got the impression that I was just supposed to accept whatever he said mindlessly. He was very short and dismissive and so was the receptionist.
