Industry Relationships

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 6/28/2021, Dr. Saleh 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. Saleh takes time to answer my questions and concerns and explains.

I was diagnosed with chronic migraines over twenty years ago. Working with three doctors in Colorado, I was put through a migraine study. The new course of treatment was to receive Botox injections every three to four months. I started at 176 units and went to 176 units under the care of Dr. Brian Siegel. Top of my face, throughout my scalp, down my neck, and the rough out my shoulders. I had tried many different migraine medications and they did not work. We also found out I was allergic to Imitrex etc. From the start of the new course of treatment and receiving the injections, my life changed. This was a huge game changer for me personally. I do have muscle tightness and pain in my shoulders, neck, and head. My migraines are always on my left aide. I also have a vertebrae (4th) which rotates out and forward contributing to my migraines. Dr. Selah did not include this in his examination notes. He has started me on Zonisamide 25mgs daily.

He did not address any of my health issues and concerns. He refused to offer any treatment plan or help without first stopping my current medications that I have been on for years. He also told me I should stop my bipolar medications also. My neurological issues needed to be addressed due to all the falls and concussion I have had withing a short time. I will NEVER return to that physician! I am now still worried about my condition and have too try again too get seen and helped.

I've had a FAR better video experience with my providers at Southwest General than I did here at the Cleveland Clinic. They seemed to have it was better together with the process, not tension their providers actually listened to me, and seem to genuinely care about helping me. Based on this experience, I wouldn't recommend the Cleveland Clinic

I felt a little rushed through the evaluation process and had wished Dr. Saleh had read the pre-appointment info as well as my Metro docs referral form. We may have been able to get to the additional CSF titers my Metro doc felt I needed sooner. I'll have to get the images from Metro and hand carry them now before we can proceed.
