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 2/6/2018, Dr. Abdelmalak 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.

Dr. Abdelmalak does not listen to what you say, tends to rush appointments and has an attitude when speaking to you. I am only continuing to see him because of the pain management 3 year rule. Otherwise I would have found a new doctor by now.

doctor didn't seem like he wanted to be in the room doing his job. I waited almost an hour after my appointment time to see him and he showed no interest in helping me with my current pain levels. I brought that up and he acted like he was humoring me by half-assing a physical by having me raise my legs but without putting any pressure on my leg as I raised it he just asked "does that hurt?" felt like a total rubber stamp appointment where my doctor treated me like a drug addict for asking for something for my severe pain that he has yet to address in 3 appointments. I told him the muscle relaxers he keeps trying to get me to take dont work and the naproxen also doesn't help but he acted like he didn't hear me and just put that in the computer. I will be looking for another pain management doctor

I finally got my referral for my MRI which I know was because if the hoops from the insurance company but I have told the doctor multiple times that having injections was out of the question because I have had several and still he tells me that when I see him next he wants to do injections like he didn't listen to a word I said about it not working for me and I cannot afford to keep missing work so he can do a procedure that will not have any effect on me but to give me more discomfort.

waited almost an hour past appointment time to only see my doctor for 5 minutes!

My visit with this health care provider far exceeded my expectations. I left with a completely new understanding of my injury; also of the expectations I should have with the healing process. I look forward to my next appointment in August and in continuing my healthcare plan with this Dr and his team!

Dr. Abdelmalak is the best doctor I have ever had. There is no compare. His knowledge combined with his manner in dealings with his patients is truly why he stands out from all the rest. I feel very blessed by knowing his and being under his care.

Dr Abdelmalak and his staff are by far the best group of health care providers I see.

Dr. Joseph Abdelmalak is by far the best physician I have ever seen. His bedside manner is wonderful, as his demeanor is kind and humble. His intellect and abilty to make you walk away from your visit feeling like you understand your condition and the plan forward is relieving. He deals with a difficult cases, and is always researching the best treatment modalities on a case by case basis. When no one else knew what was wrong with me, or how to help me with my pain, I found Dr. Abdelmalak on my own, because of his amazing reputation. never once has he let me down. He by far exceeds every expectation I have ever had for my care needs, and is helping me to get my life back. I would not want anyone one else caring for me other than Dr. Abdelmalak, because with him at my side in my care, I know that I will be alright.
