Industry Relationships

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.

As of 11/30/2017, Dr. Adhami 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 and all staff very curtious and follow up with Dr was good

Only rated ability to get appt very poor because it took a month to get in to see this Doctor. My Rheumatologist wanted me in sooner to find out what is going on with my liver but again I was not able to get an earlier appt. I have a test July 6th and can't get back in to this Doctor till the end of July. With all that is going on I would like to see the Doctor sooner to find out my test results and where we will go next for this problem I am having.

This doctor put his finger in my room with no warning at all and while I was 100% not sedated. This was mortifying, embarrassing, and caused a fissure. This was extremely unprofessional and I am beyond upset about this experience. This gentleman had absolutely no bedside manner or professionalism about himself.

I was suggested to CC to see this provider and I can't even believe the turnaround from my last provider. he actually cares about my issues and wants to truly help, not run my credit card bill up. he was attentive, easy to talk to and is very intelligent. he made me feel comfortable and that he cares and wants to get me back to feeling better. I cannot wait to work with this doctor again in 3 months. my parents are amazed about everyone in the office and the fact we did all of my testing in the same day and I got most of my results in the same day. just wonderful!

I appreciate that the doctor was on time and with minimal conversation the colonoscopy went well.

Reviewed on Jan 23, 2018

doctor did not even say hello or good morning and/ or "how are you today". eventually asked about blood thinners, very brief description of risks, noted that complications were rare, then asked for signature for consent. that was all I heard from him in procedure room.

I appreciated the doctor's sharing with me.

The doctor barely spoke to me therefore I cannot answer questions about what he knew about me
