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 6/7/2021, Dr. Mehra 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.

At my visit, I first gave all my health info, concerns and questions to a fellow. Then she went out of the room and talked to Dr. Mehra for a much shorter time period than our discussion. Then Dr Mehra came in and we all discussed having a sleep study etc. Although I agree with the sleep study decision etc, I have no idea what information or interpretation of my information the fellow relayed to Dr Mehra. Because of the short time the fellow spoke to Dr Mehra, I don't know if all of the information that I felt was valuable was relayed to Dr Mehra or if Dr Mehra helped make decisions such as changing me to a nasal mask instead of a full face mask. In the past I was told I needed a full face mask because I was a mouth breather at times. I expressed this to the fellow (Dr had left the room) and she said it might work better for me. But I don't know if Dr Mehra felt this way too or not. The fellow may be excellent and may be making good decisions, but if she is there for training, I would prefer the Dr is in the room at the same time as the fellow, so I know she is getting all the information that I provide and to know she is ultimately deciding what is best for my treatment.
