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.

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.

Dr. Kahn put me at ease from our very first appointment. I don't know if I've ever met a more caring and compassionate doctor. Dr. Kahn was very thorough in her exam, listened to all of my concerns and answered all my questions about my TMJ/TMD. She provided excellent patient care at every visit!

The receptionist at Station number 1 was very rude to at least 3 of the patients after me. She was short and had no inter personal communication skills. She was loud when talking about patients medical records and said private things out loud. I wish there was a survey about the receptionist. Dr Kahn was very sweet and knowledgeable. 10/10 recommend

Appointment scheduling is rated as fair because the Clinic cancelled the first appointment and then had trouble finding a time when a hygienist and Dr. Kahn had openings back-to-back. Consequently, I waited over a month to get a cavity filled.

Dr. Kahn was incredibly professional, caring, helpful and gave me the most thorough exam and explanations I have had over the year and a half I have been struggling with this condition. I called my brother (who is in medical school) afterwards and said it was a study in bedside manner and described how well my appointment had gone.
