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 12/17/2017, Dr. Shawki 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.

Tom Kelly (company rep for the installed stimulator) is an excellent advocate for the stimulator and Dr. Shawki. Kelly is so helpful and kind when I or husband contacts him with a problem with the unit. He has been able to take care of all but one problem with the unit over the phone. That was this last visit I had to schedule because the unit could not be repaired over the phone. Dr Shawki and his office along with Kelly got everything fixed and is still working good. very good

Dr. Shawki couldn't have been any better. He explained everything in words that we could understand. He listened carefully to all of my questions and then answered them fully. I would recommend him to anyone who needs the kind of surgery that I did. We trust him completely.

at first the dr seemed very arrogant and not personable. but when talking and giving me his opinion he was straight forward and left me very upset and I left very confused on the outcome of appt. stilll debating on getting a second opinion. another dr at the clinic sent me to him and he ask why I was there and didn't agree with me going to him and said there is nothing he can do I need to live with my health getting worse. medically to date patients with my health have no treatment.

He entered the room upset already, therefore, he seated all the way back in his chair, and seemed like I was boring him with my medical problem.
