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 12/13/2016, Dr. Sundaram 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.

Dr. Sundarum is an excellent provider. He is compassionate and thorough, taking the time to hear all of my concerns and respond appropriately.

I think the doctor was pretty good, very approachable. Problem was he seemed so overwhelmed, it was late in the day and apparently he had so many new patients, it did not give me the time and the quality of care I am used to getting at Cleveland Clinic with my old doctor. This was my first visit, so I compare everything to the care I got with Dr. AlHaddad in Independence and he didn't hold up. I will give it another shot though because I think that was just a bad day. Don't overwhelm your doctors! :-)

Reviewed on Aug 13, 2020

I recommend Cleveland Clinic based on the care I received with my previous doctor AlHaddad in Independence Family Health Center. I hope that things improve.

One of the best doctor's at Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Sundaram is very knowledgeable on every medical issue I addressed. He calms my fears and restores my hope when explaining the different methods I can employ to gain better heath. There are good doctor's, but Dr. Sundaram is beyond good as he delves deeper into underlying causes for my health concerns while addressing how such and such affect my body, the long term outcomes and the best treatment (blood pressure, for example, and my anemia the previous visit). I'm glad I have chosen Dr. Sundaram as my family physician. Plus, I don't have to worry about parking.
