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 3/2/2021, Dr. Thomas 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.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

Dr Thomas is very professional, knowledgeable Nd personable. Sometimes the admitting staff seems robotic and unsure of the procedure

Reviewed on Apr 6, 2021

dr. Thomas was so very patient and attentive and thorough. I have been struggling with hypertension for 10 years, and he kept trying until we found the medication's that worked. He also took the time to schedule me with another doctor for another problem. My care with him was superlative.

Dr. Thomas is great. When I email questions he always answers quickly (same or next day). I think he thinks about the overall picture of "me" and is "present" when meeting with me. Thanks

They called & got me right in with the Dr. He asked me a lot of questions to try to find out my problem

Dr.Thomas took time with me and didn't make me feel rushed. His follow up care and telling me about my tests etc. was just as amazing. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Reviewed on Sep 25, 2020

this is the first time I was meeting Dr Thomas. I was anxious to know what my test results meant, and what I needed to do. He was very friendly, understanding and thorough he explained my test results, what the numbers mean and what my next steps should be. he covered everything I had been anxious about and more, without me needing to ask all of my questions. he also listened to my concerns and while our appointment ended sooner than the time it was scheduled for, he never made me feel rushed. I would see Dr Thomas again, and recommend him to others.
