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 1/29/2020, 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.

dr actual listened to me and explained everything

Reviewed on Nov 29, 2019

I was concerned about pain and the doctor suggested I go buy a TENS unit. I had to call the office and I found out the unit was covered by my insurance. The doctor did not care if I was in pain, he just said it would get better with the procedure but didn't offer anything until the procedure.

Reviewed on Nov 26, 2019

came in thinking I was going to get some kind of nerve block or something to ease the pain instead I get meloxicam which really is not helping me I think ibuprofen was helping more... this is physically more painful than any kidney stone I've ever had in my life and I've probably had over a hundred and still am not getting any help or relief from my pain.. very disappointed in that aspect was also looking to figure out how to get a CAT scan or MRI besides x-rays which come to find out has to do with insurance purposes.. dr. Abraham was nice just need more attentive care for patients when it comes to people that are in severe pain
