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 12/4/2018, Dr. Abed Alwahab 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.

I felt great after my appointment - confident and empowered with the plan outlined for my health and looking forward to my next visit in 6 months. My plan was good, but my doctor looked it over and helped me improve my plan and gave me useful, manageable tips. I really enjoyed speaking with her and I felt very inspired and motivated about my health by the time I left the office.

Reviewed on Jul 10, 2018

she was unable to upload my blood sugar readings from my testing device, but I provided a detailed list in writing anyway and she seemed very appreciative. I didn't wait long before being roomed or for the physician.

Reviewed on Jul 10, 2018

Another provider needed to interrupt my appointment to ask my doctor a question about another patient and everyone was very apologetic for the interruption - it was no big deal to me - I realize I'm not the only patient and I am glad to see a provider who's so willing to collaborate with others in order to provide the best care for their patients.

Dr Alwahab is an excellent doctor. She is kind, listens and seems to be very knowledgeable. She "cured" me of a problem I had had for a long time which my primary care physician seemed to have overlooked. I am very indebted to her and so pleased with her care. Thank you for having her on your staff and thank you to her for being such a great physician
