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.

Great Professional Dr experience

Dr. Agrawal is very pessimistic and very interruptive. Terrible bedside manner. This is not a basic, common doctors visit for a common cold. These doctors are treating patients who are essentially dying and their attitude needs to be drastically improved. My coordinator Jeffrey, however, was extremely kind, helpful and understanding. The doctor was an hour and a half late to the scheduled appointment and she did not even offer an apology. My time matters as well. I'm still trying to maintain a full time job.

I am overwhelmed by the resources of Cleveland Clinic. I have not yet met Dr. Pinnacle. However, I am thankful that my care is in his hands.
