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 11/28/2018, Dr. Altman 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.

EXTREMELY GLAD THAT DR. aLTMAN IS NOW AVAILABLE ON MY LIST OF PROVIDERS. When Kaiser closed in Ohio, he was \no longer on my allowable Doctors. He was added in January so I immediately switched back to him. He is the one that caught my bladder cancer at an early time when he noticed that I had too many bladder infections for a male.

A first visit to Cleveland Clinic for any illness, but recently visited on a medical issue that I considered serious, some results still pending. My fianc? is a physician and after much research, recommended Dr. Altman and Cleveland Clinic for their expertise in Urology. We both felt like the local provider had misdiagnosed the problem and missed a critical finding. We were right on both counts. Dr. Altman was thororough and considerate, and was able to make arrangements for further testing and surgery to accommodate our tight travel plans. We reside is Alabama, and he was able to make some things happen that would have taken months back home. Better yet, I had full confidence in his approach, something that would have been lacking back home. All the clerks, schedulers, support staff, radiology, imaging, and surgery staff were very helpful and skilled. Coming to Cleveland Clinic was an excellent decision, and as a patient and consumer, I received superlative care under difficult circumstances. As a career executive in a health related industry, I know how difficult this is to do well. My thanks for making this anxiety laden experience much more tolerable than I ever expected.
