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 5/22/2018, Dr. Desai 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.

I have had several MyChart communications with this Dr. since the previous visit and after this visit. Unfortunately, This Dr. and her N.P. seem to always have to change my meds, etc., several times on the same day as my visit, before I even get home from it. It is confusing to me, has caused miscommunication of the instructions, etc. After a previous appt. the N.P. phoned me twice when I was in a noisy place, which I told her, to give me med change info. I asked her twice to MyChart me with the info and she refused. The next time (3mo) I saw the Dr. she couldn't understand why I hadn't followed the instructions that I have never received. This is inconvenient, poor organization and not good for my health.

Dr. Desai was very patient with me about making the decision to get an infusion for osteoporosis. Even though I had canceled my original appointment for the infusion, she was not critical or upset with me. She said she understood my fears and concerns. We talked about the side effects and benefits to this treatment. I felt reassured and encouraged to reschedule the infusion. I respect Dr. Desai and appreciate her ability to not try to force or coerce me to get me to do something she feels would be beneficial.
