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 2/26/2017, Dr. Abraham 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.

We discussed possible changes in my medication regime and Dr. Abraham explained possible changes and the rational behind these changes. He also allowed my input and included me in decision making.

Dr. Abraham is such a great, caring Doctor. He has been there for me when times have been tough and I am in the hospital a lot. Best Doctor I have had in 46 years!!

He always asks my opinion of treatments and any other ways to help me and my wife, he is the BOMB dot com of doctors.

He had plenty to say as, he assumed he knew all about me and my problems but, I had very little chance to expand on his assumptions. I left feeling defeated.

I would have left the clinic if it were not for Dr. Abraham. When you are chronically ill you get alienated after the surgery for the most part I found at CCF. Dr. Abraham has really taken me under his wing and has been there to listen to me talk and even cry I hate to admit. He is what "excellence in care" means. He is extremely bright and explains complicated material well to me and my wife. I am in the hospital every 30-45 days for past 2-3 years with Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome. I am Cleveland's 6th patient to be treated and operated on. I began having many relapses and continue to this day. It is a very multifaceted disease. I fell into a depression and Dr. Abraham was there for me and to this day, I have called him on the phone twice while in the hospital. I was upset and he got me in right when I was discharged. I'm a retired Cleveland policeman and I am no stranger to pain and stress management. This illness beat me down and Dr. Abraham was the only one to get me on my feet and he took great care of me still to this day. He is the best and I owe him my life.

This particular visit was strictly to get information about ongoing treatment for my condition since I will be out of town the next several months. The doctor could not have been more helpful.

Dr. Abraham is excellent at listening, then answering your questions. He also gives information about the procedure.

The doctor I seen was the most informative of any doctor I've been to for the issues I was experiencing. With this going on for over 10 years, that says a lot.

Dr. Abraham has spent a lot of time with me regarding every procedure and pulls up diagrams, internet images and goes through every step so that I understand everything including all the risks. He is very thorough.
