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 9/2/2017, Dr. Ahmed 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. Ahmed seems distracted, rushed, short. Perhaps he had an emergency (there was one appointment ahead of us that seemed to delay my appointment). I understand those things happen. The Dr. that assisted was excellent.

Office visit was too "rushed" - doctor said he had another patient to see, stood up, and ended the session! From visits early on beginning in 2010, my visits became more and more "brief" and I felt as though there was not sufficient time to discuss all that needed to be discussed.

Dr. Ahmed is a compassionate and exceptional doctor.

Dr. Ahmed was very brisk and somewhat hurried during the appointment. He did not listen carefully to my concern and really showed that he didn't agree with my assessment of my problem, nor did he ask me for further information. It was very hard to have a conversation with him of any substance. He was set in his thinking.

Following a protocol that is not proactive. Solution is to mask a symptom, not find the problem and solve it. This is the Cleveland Clinic! Where is the progressive solutions to an illness. Felt like a number going throught the room. (Answered all the questions and given a Pat answer and sent on my way.)

Very impressed with Dr Ahmed. Never felt rushed; patiently and clearly answered our questions.
