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.

Felt a good connection w/him and, after actual in-person visits, feel even more connected. He's an exceptional doctor in my view and I will certainly return to him as future needs for care warrant.

Waiting over half hour to see Doctor.

Reviewed on Aug 29, 2023

I paid for the Second Opinion process to get a recommendation for treating my prostate cancer. At our initial appt through the Second Opinion, Dr. Almassi asked me to get a PSMA Pet Scan and a second reading of my pathology report. He said once he had those results, he could meet with me again and give me a recommendation. I did both of those things and then had an appt with Dr. Almassi two and a half months later.. At our second appt, he said he would take my case to the focal treatment board and let me know in three weeks what the recommendation was. After waiting those three weeks, I was told that due to the location of the tumor near my urethra, the risk of a stricture prevented a focal treatment. The location of my tumor was evident in the MRI that Dr Almassi had at our first visit but there was no mention of a stricture concern when he looked at the MRI. Overall, I felt that I wasted quite a bit of time and spent almost $2000 going through a process that didn't measure up to what I would have expected from the Cleveland Clinic.
