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 filling in for Dr Bolla at the time of my father's appointment. Dr Shah was very courteous but Dr Bolla understands my father's history. Some of the explanations Dr Shah gave for some of the medications my father is on didn't make sense. We made the decision to keep everything status quo until his next appointment with Dr Bolla.
