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 8/1/2023, Dr. Dakkak 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.

I had to go through two different podiatrists at Cleveland Clinic, a set of x-rays, a MRI, and months of physical therapy before I was able to get the appropriate treatment with Dr. Dakkak. Dr.Dakkak was able to diagnose my injury immediately as a vertical tear of my Achilles tendon, bursitis in my heel, and degenerate disease, using an ultrasound machine and then educated me of the benefits of shock therapy.I really appreciate Dr. Dakkak's personal attention, his professional advice and treatment that he displayed. At this time of the survey I still have two more treatments left with Dr. Dakkak.

The only thing I would say is Dr. Dakaak, after establishing that I am a good candidate for Tenjet, did another test, bending my arm. It hurt and continued to hurt for some days, as if he further injured it. And I still haven't heard from Alex regarding scheduling my procedure. Alex's voicemail is full.
