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 12/9/2022, Dr. Arbesman 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. Arbesman was fantastic. Took a lot of time to ask questions, thoroughly listened and provided great feedback. Actually made all "medical terms" make sense. Super energetic and really seemed to care about me as a patient. Normally you do not find the "love" of the profession these days, but Dr. Arbesman has it and it seemed to translate to the medical student he was teaching as well. Keep this up - makes going to see the doctor much more enjoyable.

As CClinic is aware I was treated for melanoma last Sept by your fabulous Dr Gastman. Surgery was a success cancer is gone! Now Dr Arbesman is doing the follow up skin checks ea 90 check for any new or reoccurring melanoma. He is very thorough and kind in these exams. I am a redhead and have about 2 million freckles spots esp on my face and it takes a highly skilled dermatologist to spot what might be a potential problem. He always involves me in the process...and answers my questions . Dr Arbasman is really a gifted dermatologist..geek dr knowledge with great people/patient skills.Not too many docs excell in both of these areas but he definitely does!
