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 12/6/2017, Dr. Krishnamurthi 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.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

My provider is very knowledgeable about my condition and very helpful about any concerns I may have had

Reviewed on Sep 22, 2017

I should not have to spend over an hour and a half for a 10 minute office visit.

Reviewed on Sep 13, 2017

I received very clear and concise medical information.

Reviewed on Aug 29, 2017

Doctor visit time was very short.

Reviewed on Aug 8, 2017

Dr. Krishnamurthi, I hope you have access to the comments below. You exceeded my expectations. I find myself wordless to express my thanks working me into your schedule for testing. No one could ask for a better effort and execution of tests administered. I was nervous about the test and the Dr. and assistant (Lisa) worked in tandem to keep me relaxed. I had the same test administered in Dayton Ohio 10 years ago and the experience was lacking at every level in comparison. My Son (a pharmaceutical insulin representative) has repeatedly conveyed to me the professionalism, dedication, knowledge and separation from the pack of average heath care providers. I agree, the best of the best. Dr.
