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 11/3/2021, 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.

With our situation, Mom has mild cognitive impairment. It would be great if Mark (Estelle's son), could meet with the Doctor in private, before he meets with both Mark and Estelle. This way, Mark can feel free to talk about issues we are facing.

Dr Kosmides was thorough and invested time to understand my condition appropriately. He was reassuring and investigated my case without causing alarm. His demeanor is personable and calming.

Doctor Kosmides is an incredibly compassionate and caring physician. He is the first physician that I have visited, that is truly interested in attempting to research and determine what happened to me, as I have a highly complex case. He views a patient holistically, and not only suggests symptomatic treatment, but is also interested in determining the underlying cause/disease process. He is an excellent position, and I would highly recommend him!

It was good that I never felt rushed in making any decisions or agreeing with the Dr. recommendations.

When attempting to schedule a visit for an evaluation and appointment, the first two (2) individuals weren't very collaborative and somewhat challenging to communicate with as I spoke with them of my desire to have an evaluation with a neurologist to evaluate my back pain and headaches. The last woman I spoke with (I don't recall her name) was excellent! She was a great listener, asked clarifying questions and was able to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kosmides in a timely manner. She was truly outstanding in her abilities and should be the benchmark for others to follow for a world-class type of patient experience. I would highly recommend her to train or supervise others if she has any interest. The Cleveland Clinic would benefit from have others like her as an initial point of contact and positive customer experience.

Reviewed on May 26, 2021

This was my first visit with Dr. Kosmides and with a neurologist. Dr. Kosmides spent an exorbitant amount of time with me on my initial visit and consultation. He is very pleasant and personable, a great listener and was able to acknowledge and comprehend my concerns and the reason for my visit. He addressed my two concerns separately, identified the likely causes of my issues and clearly articulated the next step(s), a treatment plan and timeline for expected outcomes and a follow up. He was extremely easy to communicate with and truly reflects the world-class care I would expect from the Cleveland Clinic.

Once my visit with Dr. Kosmides was finished, he walked me to the desk where a staff member effectively scheduled my initial PT at the Akron General Wellness Center at a convenient time for me.
