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 12/9/2019, Dr. Kohara 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.

Always have a positive experience with Dr. Kohara. He is kind and truly cares and listens.

Reviewed on Sep 1, 2020

I've recommended this doctor so many times. he is so thorough, helpful and compassionate. He has genuine concern for people and I can confidently say his care has changed my life. I have had a number of heath concerns addressed and he keeps me well informed of options. I feel involved in my care, not just like I've been issued a prescription and sent home. As a result, I am a healthier and happier person. He always goes the extra mile for his patients and every referral I've sent him says the same. I have seen many care providers over the years, in various specialties. My longest relationship is with Dr. Kohara because he is the person I trust with my overall well being.

My prior physician has left CC, so this was my first appointment to establish care. My previous provider and I were still in the process of resolving a few new (albeit minor) health concerns from this last year. Dr. Kohara had reviewed the outstanding issues, made several suggestions, asked for my feedback on his suggestions, and did not pressure me to make any changes that I was not comfortable with. I left the office feeling optimistic about these issues (thyroid and mono) resolving with a few little changes. I felt like an active participant in my care plan.
