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.

Dr. Shah is up on the latest research and is very thorough in his chart reviews. My mother is 94 and he is very empathetic to her specific needs as an active 94 year old.

Dr. Shah seems very intelligent, but he didn't ask me may questions about me as a person. However, he could have been having a bad day, or been overwhelmed due to other patients, or something in his personal life. He was not rude by any means, just not the friendliest doctor I've seen. I feel like I am in good hands though!
