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 11/14/2019, 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.

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.

She seemed tired and not very enthusiastic. I tried to tell her about a gastric issue I was having but she said "I'm sorry. I hope you feel better". Really? Not, "I'll note that and we can discuss that further" or anything else a doctor would say.

Dr. Abed was an excellent listener and answered any and all of our questions and concerns we were very impressed with her prognosis and plan!

What can I say? I stick with her as a provider for a reason; she knows my diagnosis cold, and continues to work with me to manage it well.

Reviewed on Jun 3, 2019

I had difficulty getting an appointment with this provider. As a new patient, the wait was three months. However, once I visited with her the first time things moved very quickly and I believe her care is highly sought after.

Reviewed on Jun 3, 2019

This was a wonderful experience, well worth the wait. She was extremely knowledgeable, a good educator, an excellent listener, incredibly warm, made me feel worthy and normalized my condition in a way that didn't detract from my feelings but made me feel part of a group. I was blown away by the aggregation of all of these traits into one provider. Additionally, I left with a solid action plan. Wonderful physician.
