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.

Dr. Bambakidis was like a breath of fresh air--besides my PCP, he's the first physician at the clinic that seemed to really be concerned with what I'm experiencing and really wants to get to the root of the problem for me so I can live a better life. He was very caring, kind, and took time to listen to me, and was very thorough in his exam/assessment. We need more Dr.'s like him!

Dr Peter Bambakidis honestly was one of the top 2-3 FINEST, most caring physicians that I have ever had. I have been to dozens of top physicians at CCF UH and Mayo over the past 9 years. He is among the very very best. I can tell that he was trained by The Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. They really care and listen. He blended medical science with caring compassionate medicine in a way that many have forgotten. Thank God that Dr Bambakidis chose medicine as his life's work. The world is a better place. He should train all incoming physicians to CCF on physical exam, listening, compassion, empathy, and writing notes instead of typing on a computer. He even walked me out into the waiting room. Really? Most docs say "see ya"Dr Bambakiditis is such an amazing physician and a wonderful human being.

Dr Bambakidis is the best neurologist I have had by far. He really listens, not something doctors do too often anymore. I don't think he realizes how much he has helped me just by listening. He seemed to pick up on the underlying reasons for my headaches, beyond just the physical reasons. I don't think I would have made the progress I have with any other doctor.
