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 9/15/2019, Dr. Bambakidis 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.

The wait time is a little longer than other provider's wait time. But it is a busy office, and I see the physician. I never feel rushed thru the visit with the Provider. So it's worth it to wait a few minutes longer than I do for other providers.

Dr. Bambakidis was VERY nice - I remembered him from the hospital - and I wanted my mom to see him and no one else - he did not degrade any of my questions when my mom had her stroke like some of the other doctors did back in February. He listened to me - and talked to my mother as well at our appointment...and he listened to my suggestions and concerns about all the medication they were putting my mom on - when clearly the meds state that they should NOT be given to stroke patients...and he offered other solutions! I gave him a hug - not often do you find a caring doctor!

was actually shocked to have a Clinic doctor look at me and listen to me instead of looking at a computer in silence. Also amazed to have the doctor spend time to ask about my health issues and history rather than my filling out pages of questions that aren't always yes or no answers. Been telling everyone about this experience.

He rudely asked me why I even needed to see a neurologist. I was referred to one but wanted to come to the Cleveland Clinic for a second opinion. The original neurologist I saw was so compassionate and nice. The doctor here acted like I was wasting his time. I was looking forward to this appointment for months. When my health started to decline I wanted to essentially go to one of the best hospitals in the world. I was so heartbroken when I left. I sat and cried in the parking garage.
