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 9/19/2019, Dr. Kosmides 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.

Dr. K uses great listening skills to keep the discussion focused on the patient and was able to quickly work out an alternative treatment plan when I mentioned not wanting to take another daily medication.

Dr. Kosmides was outstanding. All of my questions were taken seriously and answered. I felt he heard, understood and responded to my concerns. And, his obvious clinical expertise was reassuring.

Reviewed on Jun 26, 2019

this Dr. spent the majority of our visit talking about his family rather than addressing my illness. This was very unprofessional. he told me it is likely I have MS. I have asked for the next MRI...he didn't even suggest one until I brought it up in our last phone conversation. He had a student give me results to one of my tests and they left me feeling like I had brain damage because they were just reading his notes. I am so unhappy with this experience. The symptoms I have are bad enough3 months of hell because of the lack of communication and professionalism is unacceptable. I am usually all clinic but now I am considering UH.

Dr. Kosmides is an excellent doctor. He's a great listening and hones in on the health problem. Getting appointments at the Cleveland Clinic, in general, could be way better

Reviewed on Apr 22, 2019

Dr. Kosmides is the 1st doctor in almost 4 years to listen, reassure me that he will help, told me that he wont give up until he finds a treatment that will help, and understands how I feel. No doctor until him has even tried to understand me they've all basically dismissed me saying there is nothing they can do.

Reviewed on Apr 22, 2019

My first appointment took a bit but that was expected. I like the way Dr. Kosmides reads over my chart n then any emails before we start talkinf about anything. That tells me that he's keeping up with me and only me while I'm in the room with him. I dont think I have ever had a doctor do that.

Reviewed on Apr 11, 2019

Dr. K. was very thorough with his explanations and showed patience in answering my questions.
