Industry Relationships

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.

She was rushed. I spent more time waiting for her than I spent in the appointment.

Dr. Gitiforooz is very helpful and I like that she explains and addresses the concerns I have.

The doctor had not provided services standard for women in my condition. Even the front desk was surprised I haven't received routine services. We called once to confirm services provided at an appointment and the office confirmed and the doctor told us to wait for another appointment. The appointments are rushed and I don't feel comfortable using this provider moving forward.

The reason I am marking low on this survey is because of the rushed experience I had. From the time my appointment started and I walked out of the clinic was 10 min. I had major concerns about abnormal bleeding and the doctor did not take the time to sit and discuss these concerns with me. When I attempted to discuss my concerns she began the exam completing my pap while I was talking without any warning. She was not gentle with the pap and caused me to bleed for a week after the test. I have significant medical history related to my gyn issues which the doctor had no interest of reviewing as this was my first visit with her with the goal of establishing her as my new gyn primary. The doctor had no interest into looking further into my symptoms telling me my abnormal bleeding was due to stress. When I asked about this bleeding even though I am on birth control she said that if she changed the medicine that it would probably cause me to have additional bleeding. I have never heard of break through bleed to the extent of mine as being normal, but then the doctor didn't even ask me how much I was bleeding I was having. I left the office feeling as though she didn't care about my concerns, nothing was accomplished other than my annual pap, and feeling that I needed to seek another gyn's second opinion. As a new employee of the Clinic I am so completely disappointed in the care I received by this doctor.
