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 9/26/2018, Dr. Cabrera 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.

Dr. Cabrera is extremely talented. He made a prostate biopsy a totally painless procedure. I am a retired physician who trained at the Cleveland Clinic and was in staff at the Cleveland Clinic. I have worked with incredible physicians in my 35 year career and Dr. Cabrera is as fine a physician as I have ever encountered.

Dr Cabrera's conservative approach to my concerns was comforting and much appreciated.

Reviewed on Oct 17, 2022

Excellent experience with Dr. Cabrera. His description of my condition and the potential treatments available were clear and concise. Almost all my questions regarding my cancer were provided before I asked them. His delivery of the outcome of my biopsy was caring and factual . I left the meeting understanding my condition and my future steps. Also, I would like to add that I cancelled my previous appointment set to review my biopsy results with Dr Cabrera due to Hurricane Ian. Rather than being left to wonder what my test results meant and what potential treatments were available, Dr Cabrera contacted me and provided information for me to consider. I appreciated this contact very much.

Dr. Cabrera is an outstanding physician - professional, knowledgeable, and caring. I consider myself fortunate that he was on-call the weekend I came into the hospital several years ago with kidney stones and kidney shutting down. As the result of his sound judgement and surgical expertise, he performed emergency surgery and a week later another procedure and I have been well since that time. Dr. Cabrera is an outstanding physician, a very kind and thoughtful individual and a credit to your institution.
