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.

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.

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.

I have been able to live my life without constant worry because I know Dr Advani has my back. She listens carefully and I totally trust her. I have been going to her for 17 years! Long enough to see a new building constructed, have 3 grandchildren born and not to mention a pandemic!

Concerning my treatment, this has been excellent. When I was as diagnosed, chemo was basically my only option. From the very beginning, Dr Advani explained what future medications might hold for CLL. Fast forward 17 years, 1 treatment of chemotherapy, and here we are, a medication that was just getting started in clinical trials when I showed up in Dr Advani's office. I call this a very good experience!

I hope to never have to recommend a leukemia specialist to anyone. That being said, Dr Advani is an incredibly caring doctor. She consistently asked me what questions I had and spent time discussing them with me and my husband. She has a very calm and soothing bedside manner, but never comes across as glib. Her depth of knowledge really put me at ease.
