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.

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.

Dr. Zhu recommended an MRI and to see me again (after MRI) in about 3 weeks. Earliest available MRI appointment was 9 weeks out.

Dr Zhu is fantastic.

Although I appreciate Dr Zhu referring me to Dr Almassi for a more sophisticated biopsy procedure, he seemed unusually rushed during my visit. Since I am likely dealing with prostate cancer, I was hoping for a calmer visit with more time to discuss treatment options. One good thing is that I learned that surgery has significant side effects. That is useful information as I look ahead.

Dr. Zhu is the best!!

Reviewed on Jul 7, 2023

I have never met Dr Zhu before nor have I ever filled out one of these surveys . As a ccf nurse for over 20 years I never felt the need . I mention this to emphasize how important it was to me to comment now. Dr. Zhu was amazing . He listened to my individual needs and came up with a plan that worked for both of us . He called me at home , before ever meeting him , due to a concern I had about the course of my treatment. The staff in the office stated how wonder he is and what a pleasure it is to work with me - this was all before ever meeting him . He was exceptional. Both in the office and pre and post procedure . I felt that I needed to express how much I appreciated this time and attention that he gave to me . Truly a positive experience .

Dr. Zhu let me know exactly what He was doing at all times. Very direct. I would have loved advice on alternative treatment but I trusted Him and He came through. GOD gave me a GREAT DOCTOR..
