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 12/2/2019, Dr. Zhu has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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.

It was the worst medical experience in general I have ever had. For one, I drove 5 hours from Indianapolis. Once I pulled into parking lot (after 5 hr drive) I received a call telling me my Dr. had to go into surgery and they would need to reschedule my appointment. After telling them of the drive they said they would get me in. I saw the same Dr. I was schedule to see, but he was obviously "not there" so to speak. He rushed me in and out. Did not listen to any of my wants/needs/thoughts about my issues and said all he could suggest was ibuprofen haha. I mentioned other surgeries/alternatives to my issues, but the Dr. seemed the least bit sympathetic, and acted like my issue was no big deal whatsoever. It was literally the worst experience, appointment wise I have ever been a part of. The Dr. seemed very robotic in his answers/solutions, and I will not be giving the Clinic good reviews to potential patients (family/friends/etc.) I had so much optimism before my appointment which quickly turned to pessimism. Very disappointed!!

Friendly Dr. and staff. This was my initial visit, so it basically consisted of a meet and greet. I arrived early and staff was able to accommodate me.

doctor seemed "rushed" but was thorough

Reviewed on Jul 12, 2019

I was shocked. Dr. Zhu was on time, very curteous and quickly diagnosed my problem. More impressive is that he responded within an hour when I emailed him a few days later with an issue with my prescription and he remedied the situation immediately. Never had this tye of service with a Cleveland Clinic doctor before

Dr. Zhu is by far the best urologist my husband has had at the Cleveland Clinic because he listens, supports and lacks the pompousness we've had before.

I recently visited Dr. Zhu to consult my prostate situation. I felt Dr. Zhu is the best doctor I ever had. He reviewed my test reports and explained my conditions in detail. He answered my questions and worries patiently. He suggested and discussed the treatments for my situation carefully. Dr. Zhu was professional but cared for me as a person. I definitely will recommend Dr. Zhu to others.

Reviewed on May 17, 2019

I like Dr. Zhu's friendliness and respect his competence. I just have difficulty, sometimes, communicating with him. Also, sometimes he seems to give short answers to questions followed by a "see what I mean" repeatedly. Then, if I don't understand his answer and try to rephrase my question he interrupts me and gives another answer followed by a "see what I mean". I get frustrated but I'm confident in his compentence so I haven't sought out another Urologist.
