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 2/9/2022, Dr. Harris 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.

Dr Harris called me twice last week. Additionally it was to talk about sarcoid and surgery. The next day I really went downhill due to covid, and that's what he urged me to get to the ER. I never had a doctor talked so directly to me or care so much about me, so I'm beyond grateful to have a good day care team. I consider him be head of the care team.

Dr. Randall Harris is a highly skilled doctor whose opinion I greatly trust. He treated my father over 10 years ago, so that's how I knew of him. He listens to his patient's concerns and addresses them with compassion and caring. He doesn't rush the visit either, which is so common in today's medical practices. He is truly an asset to the Cleveland Clinic.

Dr Harris is the best doctor I've had in a long time! He is professional, kind and thorough. He actually listens to me and "hears" what I'm saying. He reviews past CTscans and x rays at every visit. One could only hope all physicians were like him. I met him when I was admitted to AGMC as he became my pulmonologist at that time. I consider myself fortunate that he was responsible for my care.

Great Doctor

Reviewed on Sep 27, 2021

I love coming to Dr. Harris. He is very knowledgeable and covers all his bases. The only thing I would recommend the practice focus on is follow up. Dr. Harris and I spoke about possible changes to my medicine after consulting with Dr. Karla Pearson. To date, I have not heard what the outcome/decision was. Also, as I was leaving, I was told by the front receptionist that she would send something to me if it was needed. I don't recall what it was that she said she would send, so I guess there was nothing. In short, the wrap up and the follow up could be a little better.
