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 1/11/2019, Dr. Sohal has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

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.

Even though the diagnosis was not good news, Dr Sohol was very courteous, attentive and sympathetic. He was honest about my options and outcome of treatments.

Dr. Sohal took the position of summarizing my diagnosis and treatment status even though it was not his particular responsibility. He gave me the tumor board report, which had been in the system for several weeks, but I had not yet seen (it had not been posted on my chart). He is voluntarily acting as sort of the case manager for me, and even scheduled a return visit with him after my upcoming biopsy and MRI ordered by Dr. Mesko, to again summarize my condition and prospective treatment. I cannot overemphasize how invaluable this summarization is to me.

My doctor is very direct with information. Explains what he sees on the scans and what they mean or might mean and knows what other doctor to refer me to if we need another opinion. He has been good to me and I am glad he is the doctor keeping an eye on my cancer health after having had chemo.

Dr. Sohal has always been very good about answering our questions, whether by e-mail or in person. He listens and doesn't make us feel rushed. He always makes us feel comforted, and my husband has appreciated that. As my husband's caregiver, I appreciate his caring, and that he includes me in discussion, answering my questions as well. We are so glad to have him throughout this process. He is our rock.
