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 2/4/2022, 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.

Dr. Abraham was very friendly, caring, and informative. He really listened to me and took the time to explain my condition and answer my questions. He addressed all of my concerns and made helpful suggestions. He truly cares about your well-being and explains treatment options thoroughly and thoughtfully.

Dr. Abraham was the best. He was compassionate, he listened, and was truly concerned about my dad. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Reviewed on Sep 9, 2022

I've never had a doctor give me so many options for treatment. He was wonderful at explaining what my issue was and how to best resolve it. He listened to me and did not discount or "brush off" anything I had to say. He didn't seem bothered by all my questions, either!

Reviewed on Sep 9, 2022

I will highly recommend Dr. Abraham and his staff. I'm hoping the wait time was not the norm, but even so, it was worth it.

Dr. Abraham and his nurse were wonderful! The doctor took the time to talk to me and explain to me with patience and kindness. I never felt rushed or like he needed to move on to his next patient.

Reviewed on May 17, 2022

Dr. Abraham is that rare physician who not only listens to his patients, but includes them as equal partners in the decision-making about their care.

Reviewed on May 13, 2022

Dr. Abraham told me to seek psychiatric help for my pain. I have a diagnosis and a treatment plan from my neurologist of trigger injections and only came to pain management for the more permanent solution of ablation. Not sure how that became "my pain Is all In my head". Disgusted with the experience.

Reviewed on Apr 21, 2022

Made me feel like my fibromyalgia diagnosis was inaccurate, but offered no other solutions or testing options. I felt he was prejudiced of me based on my weight, despite losing nearly 100lbs, and my mental health diagnosis. I was very upset when I left this appointment. Considering talking to someone about a complaint.
