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 9/15/2020, 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.

The best medical care!!! Thank you all very much! Your corporate community has always fostered a positive caring and professional atmosphere that is both warm and welcoming as well as medically capable and knowledgable. But, make no mistake, it is the extreamly high caliber of people you have in nurses, doctors, yes, but also in your maintenance personnel, your custodial personal, and all of the blue collar people I have met there from time to time, all of the highest class and caliber! Your medical teams are, by far, the best there is!

Clearly Dr Hakim is a skilled physician. Unfortunately, on this day, he forgot his bedside manner. He was clearly over booked and I was as rushed through an initial visit as I have ever been. His is a sensitive specialty and on this day, he forgot that, though "normal' for him, the rest of us are not having a "normal" experience with procedures in his specialty. I had to ask a LPN to have him return as I had several more questions to ask that I did not get out before he had rushed out of the room. This is the start of my care with him, so I only hope he slows it down when it comes to procedures, reading results and treatment planning.
