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 10/2/2017, Dr. Kharbat 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.
* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

I am not going to see her know as after two appt's you get moved on to the assistant which is fine and more convenient for me than going downtown. However, she didn't wish me luck or anything at the end of our visit. Could have been a bit more positive and warm.

The doctor told me she didn't have enough time to go through my analysis if I kept asking questions. She seemed to mock me when I told her I had a science background and wanted more explanations to some of my symptoms and supplements.

Dr Kharbat was absolutely amazing. I have never felt like a Dr understood me as much as she did. She was excellent about asking questions to get information, listened to what I had to say and was very interested / compassionate throughout the visit. I have only been to one appointment with her, but her insight into my illness has given me more hope of recovery than I have had in years. I simply cannot say enough good things about her.

Dr. Kharbat does a great job of talking you through the decisions and what follow up will be needed. I always walk out of her office feeling as though I understand everything and had all of my questions answered. If I forgot any I could always send her a My Chart message and she always replies in a timely manner.

As I've come to expect at Cleveland Clinic, the provider considered me to be an integral part of my wellness team. That's such a "novel" thing about CC. Providers notice that I'm there and actually think I should be included in the discussion. In so many other places, doctors interact with the computer screen more than they interact with me. Sometimes I want to say, "Hello, I'm over here."

I feel that I finally found a physician who has the ability to look at the big picture regarding my health. I finally have some hope that my problems may have a resolution - that I may actually be able to improve my health. Dr. Kharbat clearly understands interactions of various systems in the human body and is not confined to narrowly generated ideas.
