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 8/4/2017, Dr. Estemalik 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.

I had to wait 3 months to get an appointment with provider referred by my neurologist.

Reviewed on Jul 11, 2018

I waited a long time. The Dr. apologized. He said he thought his resident was seeing me, so he waited to come in. I never saw the resident.

The physician's assistant was great! She listened carefully to me and took her time. But the actual doctor that I saw, I literally only saw him for about 1 minute. He didn't even try to figure out why I'm getting such terrible headaches.. just- here's a script that'll help. They had no knowledge of the fact that I had just had brain scans done. It wasn't in the system and no one told me prior to the appointment that I had to physically go get a copy of the scans. I even asked on the phone when the appointment was made. I have a brain tumor and am concerned that this is the cause of my headaches. That wasn't even discussed. I feel like the appointment was a total waste of time and I'm very displeased.

This doctor exhibited zero compassion. My wife and I both found him cocky and arrogant regarding my problem. Also, he was very short with me. I am extremely disappointed.

I only see Dr. Estamalik once a year, but his schedule doesn't open up for booking until about 2 months prior to needed appointment. This results in having to call repeatedly to check if I can book an appointment.

Reviewed on May 7, 2018

Dr. Estamalik provides efficient, thorough care and ensures that the patient feels comfortable with the treatment. He always shows respect and care for the comments/questions I may have. I appreciate his help.

Reviewed on Mar 5, 2018

I always feel very rushed with Dr Estemalik, but he is the only neuro at the Avon location. This was my first botox injections appointment, so if they work, then the benefits outweigh the rushed feeling I get. I just feel like I always leave and have questions I forgot to ask. I also noticed not all the types of migraines I get were listed in the paperwork I later received. I googled this doctor and noticed similar comments. Perhaps his patient load is too heavy and there is a need for more than one neuro in Avon? Thanks.

Reviewed on Mar 5, 2018

My checkout and booking of the next botox appt took longer than my actual injection appointment. That doesn't usually take so long.

Reviewed on Feb 8, 2018

Dr Estamalik was who I was scheduled to see but I spent most of my visit with Dr Donnelly. I enjoyed talking with Dr Donnelly and she listened. when Dr Estamalik came in he didn't really want to listen to what I had to say and blew off my concerns.

Reviewed on Jan 29, 2018

The doctor prescibed me a medication for migranes ive already tried, half the reason I went to him was to get an alternative option. He should have seen ive already been given that medicine on my chart. Unfortunatly I failed to realize it was the same medicine because he used a differnt name for it. However he did think to ask for a bloodtest to check my thyroid which came back to show problems. So while Im mad he failed to notice ive already tried the meds he did find the problem with my thyroid which im thankful for.

No recommendations if the new med. did not work - what to do next was not given.

Reviewed on Aug 22, 2017

Very professional, caring, knowledgeable, spoke on terms we could understand, showed patience with us and answered all of our questions, made us feel at ease with the upcoming procedure and during the procedure. Very supportive and upbeat. Highly recommend him to another person who may need care. Top notch doctor. One of the best I have seen in my lifetime, and a great representative of Cleveland Clinic.

Reviewed on Aug 11, 2017

He was fantastic. He knew so much about my medical conditions and history, and seemed so genuine in his concern for my health. He seemed like the type of provider who would advocate passionately for what is best for his patients.
