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 1/18/2019, Dr. Azem 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.

brought info from my PCP that was not looked at and an article I would have liked him to read that describes my pain but didn't look at either. maybe not the right doctor for my BMS. he prescribed a steroid to put on my gums but hasn't taken away the pain. he was pleasant. he mentioned going to main clinic if the steroid doesn't work.

Dr. Azem is wonderful and so helpful. He is a very knowledgeable and compassionate physician. I highly recommend him.

Reviewed on Jun 26, 2019

The doctor was dismissive and showed no respect to me as a patient. No treatment options were discussed, let along decisions that might include me. No discussions of what tests might entail or what would be done after the tests were complete. I literally was in a room with the doctor for one minute and 45 seconds. I was rushed out after waiting an hour and 20 minutes after my appointment time with no explanation, then hustled out of the exam room. Very disrespectful. I was clearly nervous, scared, and hoping to hear what might be wrong or possible treatments. Incredibly sub par for the Cleveland Clinic.
