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.

Dr Shah was very thorough and interested in my medical needs and I am glad he is my cardio doctor.

Dr Shah is a good listener.

Reviewed on Nov 9, 2023

Provider had some unprofessional comments and I didn't appreciate his lack of concern with my symptoms. His after visit note does not reflect what we talked about, especially my symptoms and education documented was contradictory of what we had discussed. Also, the clinic was unable to obtain my EKG from my PCP at the time of the appt and did not do one at this appt. I would think it would be extremely important to have a baseline EKG when you see a cardiologist for the first time. He also didn't even listen to my heart, just my lungs for a few brief seconds.
