Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

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.

Since I am a musician I would say the surgery went along as a well practiced orchestra. Like a symphony

doctor was very courtesy and helpful

Reviewed on Dec 14, 2016

Dr. did not explain his role in the two day series of tests or his expertise. There were assumptions I had seen other CC cardiologists which I had never been scheduled to see nor did I see. It doesn't matter but its would be nice to know a little more before meeting with someone - or as one meets with professionals.

We were both extremely impressed with the care, detail, compassion and professionalism given by all the staff we interacted with. Dr Fares was the best doctor we have ever 'worked' with...impressive!
