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 9/10/2020, Dr. Aly 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.

I don't believe that a neurologist after only twenty minutes of talking to me- can just to a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome. A more integrative approach to care is needed. Viewing body systems as a whole is what is needed to see what the root causes are to problems. Separating my problems to different specialists has gotten me absolutely nowhere. The doctor was very kind, but I still feel like I am being misdiagnosed. she wanted to hear my top three neuro complaints. That's not very simple when I have tons. I'd rather have a doctor who wants to hear my whole health history when certain symptoms actually started and try to find the underlying common thread.

As I stated before, I have a long complex health history. I don't think someone after only spending 20 minutes with me can adequately make a diagnosis.. I have trouble with my right leg and no explanations as to why it goes numb. I was told I have chronic fatigue syndrome and if I need a cane, get a cane... and that some people with chronic fatigue become bedridden and the only doctor who could treat me was at Stanford. nobody is listening to a patient as a whole. they are dividing up symptoms and common threads are being ignored. chronic fatigue does not explain why I've developed raging arthritis, why I kept getting flu like symptoms, and lots more. I've had lots of changes with white blood cells as well while I've been super sick since summer.I was going for a second opinion, I will be sticking with my New York provider who is actually interested in seeing me recover my health... not advising me to join a support group, watch a film on chronic fatigue, and that if I need a cane get a cane. like it's no big deal even though I'm 29 years old.
