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 9/20/2018, Dr. Sood-Mendiratta 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. seemed very hurried.. prescribed new medication with very little info about side effects . All questions were answered with a "we'll see" answer . Reluctant to discuss future outcomes that may include surgery. She seemed to have one foot at the door as soon as she looked at my eyes and prescribed new medication. As I said, she seemed very anxious to get out of the room. I don't believe she spent more than 8 minutes with me ..if that. Never smiles and not welcoming at all. she is however, very professional and does respond quickly to my chart.

Reviewed on Aug 10, 2018

apparently the doctor seems a bit over loaded with patients to e served in a timely manner. This seems to put the doctor and patient in a compromised situation. This in the long run could ultimately compromise services rendered.

I had to wait an hour to see the doctor then when I did see the doctor the visit lasted less than 15 minutes and I don't feel like the problem was addressed adequately. she was clearly overbooked because there were many patients in the waiting room

My eyes have been a problem for all of my 45 years of life, and I have been to many eye doctors. Dr. Sood is the BEST doctor I have ever seen and I do not ever plan to switch doctors again. I live 75 miles away but she is well worth the trip!
