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 11/27/2019, Dr. Manos 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. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

Dr. Manos is very thorough and takes the time needed to make sure I understand my diagnoses. He goes above and beyond to help with any questions or concerns.

I recommended Dr. Manos to a friend who has concerns about her daughters lack of ability to focus. she is concerned that her daughters school is ignoring her request for an ADHD evaluation.

Our experience with Dr. Manos was very disconcerting. My wife, our son, and I attendee the scheduled appointment. We were referred to the intern clinic and were lucky enough so we thought, to get an appointment with Dr. Manos. Our first impression of the doctor was him telling us that he does not shake hands and pushed an antibacterial pump our way. We understand this, but the manner in which it was said and pushed on us was interpreted as rude. He proceeded to treat us like we were beneath him and made my wife feel uncomfortable to the point I was considering walking out. Our goal in meeting with a psychologist was to make sure we were following correct protocol regarding our son who has severe ADHD. Anything meaningful that Dr. Manos may have shared was lost in disbelief with his pompous, arrogant behavior. Possibly he was having a bad day, but we left feeling it was a waste of time and money. After leaving our son asked us if there was something wrong with Dr. Manos. Needless to say we will not returning to Dr. Manos nor referring him to anyone.

provider asked me if my child wiggles a lot when seated. when I said yes he said "much like you have been doing throughout this appt.". also made my child cry. did not take time to build a rapport with her but jumped right into very difficult personal questions for her and also told her she needed to face her fears when she has been through major counseling for this after medical trauma and he knew it. she had to sleep in our room that night she was so upset about how he talked to her. provider also initially asked my child why she was at the appt. and when she didn't answer and he had her leave the room, he told me I was over protective of her bc she didn't answer his question even though we had discussed with our child several times why she was seeing him that day.

office staff was great. while Dr manos seemed thorough and I have heard great things about his camps and methods, I didn't feel particularly respected as a parent and my child was very upset with the manner he spoke to her
