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 12/1/2020, Dr. Dahbar 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.

Dr. Dahbar was extremely gentle, fast, and sincere. He listened to my concerns and gave me the information I needed to make my own educated decision.

I am so glad that I found Dr Duhbar. He is truly a caring, knowledgeable professional. I appreciate his supportive encouragement to live a healthy life style, such as moderate exercise, eating healthy and monitoring my blood pressure daily. In my 67 years, I feel like he is the best primary care physician that I have ever had. His kind, respectful demeanor makes it a pleasant experience to go to the doctor.

Look at the person's profile to why they are are there before you walk in the room and ask " how can I help you " you should know you are the doctor. I don't want to have to explain everything over to someone who has everything on file.

The NP or PA that started my visit was great. However, Dr. Dahbar was off-putting. He spent under a minute with me in the exam room. I remember the full conversation: "Hi, I'm Dr. Dahbar. Make sure you eat healthy and exercise. Any questions?" I take my health very seriously, and I get it I'm young and healthy. However, I come in for a yearly physical and expect a thorough examination, just in case and to continue to be healthy. I pay mostly out of pocket and am somewhat disgusted at the thought of having to pay for under a minute of exam time and to not be evaluated.
