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 5/19/2020, Dr. Patel 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.

Dr. Patel was extremely thorough, thoughtful, and compassionate in her approach with me. She treated my family & me with respect and took the time to answer all of our questions and we had many! At no time did I feel rushed. She also spoke to us at our level and explained all terms in an easy to understand manner. I would actually rate her a 10 in each of these areas.

I had the very best experience with Dr.Patel. She answered all of my questions and a very caring Dr. She made me feel at ease

Doctor is very passionate and engaged which is good, but came into the exam room and started talking to me while the nurse was still in the middle of taking vitals. I appreciate her arriving on time and she is very knowledgeable about my condition, however entering that way was a little overwhelming for me and it also prevented the nurse from being able to document my vitals properly during that visit. I would recommend in the future waiting a couple of minutes to allow nursing to complete their tasks, that way they are not interrupted and the patient can also give complete focus to conversation with the doctor rather than trying to focus on multiple things at once.
