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 10/13/2017, 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.

Experience with Doctor Sood is always exceptional.

She's a very compassionate doctor!!!

I never have experienced any difficulties with scheduling, time waiting for my appointment or during my visit with the care provider.

Reviewed on Apr 10, 2018

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

Reviewed on Mar 6, 2018

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!

Reviewed on Jan 11, 2018

Care Provider told me the prescription she was ordering for me but gave no information about it. Since I had to leave the information sheet with the questioner on the back, I had no information to take with me.

This was a continuing follow/up appointment with Dr. Sood. Very caring, and takes the time to listen to me with my issues and problems.

Superb personal care and knowledgeable about my history, medical issues, and my life. I very much appreciate having such kind and caring expertise so close to home. Great experience with Dr. Sood every time.

Job well done

Reviewed on Jul 6, 2017

She was vague. She told me I had something and used a particular word I did not know. I asked what I should do and she said to take vitamins. I asked what type. She then said come back in a year and do not take vitamins until that time. She gave no explanation and hurried me from the room. She seemed in a hurry most of the time. She was not very pleasant either. I felt like I was involved in a production line. There was little personal concern from the doctor. I felt like I was a thing, not a person.

Reviewed on Jun 6, 2017

Generally, the process is good from start to finish.

Dr Sood is an excellent physician. Very intelligent and shows great concern for her patient.
