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 12/14/2020, Dr. Issa 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. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

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.

He is one of the best doctors I have ever seen! Concerned about my condition, concerned about my recuperation, concerned about any possible future events. Listens! Actually ask questions and waits for a response. Considers the response, and has a solution. He's very easy to talk to. He does not make you feel inferior. He and his staff are on top of any medication that needs to be refilled.

Dr. Issa was wonderful, he saw me on his 1/2 day off, he listened to me, never rushed or in a hurry. He seemed concerned about my symptoms, very kindly wanted to have the MRI done at a Cleveland Clinic facility closer to me, so I wouldn't have to drive all the way to Westlake, more convenient for me. Never had a Dr. Be so considerate before. I felt like he really cared about me. I have had this health problem for several years and he wants to fix' it.

I showed up 15 minutes early for my appointment! Another person came late and said they got lost finding the place and was taken right away! I waited a hour before I saw the doctor! Then once we discussed the prognosis! I was scheduled for a endoscopic appointment over a month later! Then to see if a operation will be necessary I realize Dr. ISSA is a fine and well respected doctor and in demand! It seems like a long time to wait and solve my problem and hopefully nothing will arise in the mean time!
