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 9/18/2017, Dr. Hakim 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. Hakim and his staff are the ultimate professionals and provide excellent attention and care!

I will not see this Doctor again. Always rushing, did not explain anything unless asked and even then, not very interested on a personal basis. should have seen other's reviews and would have selected someone else

Reviewed on May 14, 2018

seems that this Doctor was more interested in going to see another patient or go to his coffee break

Reviewed on Apr 4, 2018

Dr. Hakim, while competent, seems relatively indifferent to patients and always rushes me out of his office. I don't particularly care to come there very often.

I came in for supplemental testosterone. Nothing was mentioned about the conversion of some of the gel into estrogen or using a blocker to block that conversion. I still have questions about it.

Never enough time spent to discuss my concerns w/ the provider/doctor.

Overall I went to this doctor based information found on Cleveland Clinic website. It appears he is very knowledgeable in his field and is likely an exceptional doctor in what he does. My only concern is that this doctor is not very personable and seems rushed to get in and out. You would think that a Urologist who deals in often "delicate" issues for men would show a little more focus on his patient. On my initial visit to this doctor, his assistant who ran through all the preliminary Q &A, did an outstanding job of explaining the issue of my condition. If Dr. Lawrence Hakim took some of the personality of his assistant, he might well be an all-around outstanding doctor. In the end if I need surgery down the road the important thing will be how good of a surgeon Dr. Hakim is, the rest will not be as important, but it would be nice if you can feel good all aspects of the doctor's care.
