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 2/12/2024, Dr. Diwakar 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.

In reviewing the note compared to the after visit summary, there was a lot more detail in the note for obvious reasons. However, even compared to my last visit I would give the same feedback. Specifically I am referring to the request to keep a food log and other specific items. If these things are truly required I think they should be in the after visit summary so it is clear that it is expected at the next visit

I just wabt to say that Dr. Diwakur is absolutely amazing, compassionate, and really advocates for her patients. I also work in healthcare and I have struggled with my weight for years. I was told by one of my physicians that I have medication weight gain. Dr. Diwakur helped me with educating me on diet, nutrition and eventually incorporated exercise into my treatment plan as well as medication to help me along the way. She made her recommendations at my pace. I am happy to say that I am now down 60 lbs and I give so much of the credit to Dr. Diwakur. AGMC is so lucky to have her and I am very fortunate to be her patient. I have also recommended her to some of my friends. Thank you, Dr. Diwakur!!!
