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 5/14/2018, Dr. Allan 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. Allan has been our doctor for many years! Only concern is that it is very hard to see him and if we need to see someone between the year visit we have to go to someone else. Unable to see *Dr. Allan.

at times it is very difficult to make an appointment to see Dr. Alan especially the annual wellness check up and have been asked to see a different doctor because he is booked so far in advance.

I see Dr Allen yearly on N appointment made a year in advance. Getting in to see him during a medical emergency is not possible unless I wait 6 weeks. that is untenable. I always chose to see another Dr. right away.

There is simply not enough availability for Dr. Allan. In my opinion, providers should be able to limit the number of patients in their practice (closed practice). Dr. Allan is obviously extremely intelligent and interested in his patients...there's just not enough availability!

*Dr. Allan consistently provides excellent care. I am however disappointed with how difficult scheduling is, availability of appointment is poor, when I talk with clerks. Appointments are often cancelled by the office staff & rescheduled months away.

Dr. Allan had a medical student along with him and I thought he did a great job with including her with my visit. I felt very comfortable with the visit.

in the near past, care provider prescribed a branded medicine instead of its generic alternative. as a result my insurance provider didn't reimburse me for the medication. my plan supports only reimbursement of generic medications so it would have been nice if the doctor told me about that change.
