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.

Reviewed on Jun 23, 2020

The did say he needed to type during the meeting, but it made it seem like he was more interested in charting. Maybe providers should record the meeting with the patient's permission and document after the call. Also, he stated that he didn't have anything about me, no records. why didn't someone reach out to my doctor's office to let them know. If he didn't have what he needed for the consult then he should have asked to reschedule once he had what he felt like he needed. The meeting felt like a waste of time after he said that to me.

Reviewed on Feb 20, 2020

Dr. Gabbard is very good in every aspect of patient care. There is always the opportunity for a care provider to "step back" and in simple vocabulary go over causes, status, test results, finding, etc., and keep the patient as fully aware, as possible. I would like to see more of this type of Dr. - patient encounter. A bit more "holistic".

Amazing doctor! Listened to me and asked how I was feeling, not what doctors have told me what I might be feeling. He went over what me test results showed, came up with a plan of action and showed me medical charts and studies that backed up why he made those decisions. He also asked me to keep in touch with him and let him know how the medicine he prescribed is helping me so he can increase dosage if needed. One of the best doctor visits I have ever had - hands down.

Dr Gabbard is a nice fella, but I didn't feel like he understood my pain level and seriousness of my problem. Although he's an esophageal doc, I feel that he could have recommended more testing, etc on my general issue of abdominal pain/back/referred pain. Just my opinion...
