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 4/9/2018, Dr. Jacobs 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.

ALL GOOD, DOCTOR JACOBS IS A VERY THOROUGH DOCTOR, AND WE ALWAYS HAVE A VERY OPEN DISCUSSION ABOUT HEALTH, PRESCRIPTIONS, AND EVEN PERSONAL. HE ALWAYS ASKS IF THERE ARE ANY PROBLEMS, HOW I FEEL, AND IF HE COULD HELP ME WITH ANYTHING. IF I EVER HAVE A MEDICAL PROBLEM, DR JACOBS ALWAYS HELPS, AND ALWAYS FOLLOWS UP IMMEDIATELY . GREAT DOCTOR, ITS TO BAD THAT ALL DOCTORS ARE NOT THAT WAY.

Dr Jacobs is awesome one of my favorite Drs. his nurses are very friendly.I would recommend him to anyone in need of a cardiologist.

My experience with Dr. Jacobs was very pleasant. He is cordial, thorough. When I made my appointment, I had trouble transferring my records from my previous doctor and Kayla, who had answered my call, helped me by calling herself and making sure that the records were transferred. I had tried with three phone calls to my previous doctor at University Hospitals with no success. SO she was WONDERFUL. My only comment is that Dr. Jacobs did not review my records before he saw me, so when I was in the office he then proceeded to look them up on the computer and discuss them with me. I felt, being a new patient, that should have been done prior to my visit. As far as my visit, and after he read the records, he is a great doctor and I look forward to having him as my regular cardiologist. He is a knowledgeable man and very pleasant. Made me very comfortable. I look forward to regular 6mo visits with him.

I'd like to see a little more concern about side effects, I don't know if it matters if you have side effects. all docs seem to go to another drug but they all have the seem side effects and I end up spending a lot of money on pills that don't work.

Dr Jacobs was very patient and carefully reviewed all information concerning my tests to be sure I understood the results. his technical and nursing staff was polite and also took time to explain each procedure. overall the experience was most productive. I would highly recommend Dr. Avrum Jacobs to anyone needing similar cardiac medical care.

Provider gave me lots of information in an area I'm not familiar with, this is very critical in future health decisions I will be making. Would have helped to have this info written/recorded somehow; perhaps in My Chart so I can refer back to it.
