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 12/3/2019, 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.

everything was one on one from checking in, to being triaged and seeing the Dr to being discharged and back to the front desk for future scheduling.

Reviewed on Oct 3, 2019

I had a very scary doctor visit. The Doctor told me diagnosis that was not on My chart or nothing I discussed with my primary doctor. I even told him that where is all this is coming from and why it was not on My chart and was not discussed with me by my primary doctor. He keeps continuing with out double checking and told me that I need to schedule for Biopsy. I was nerves and stunned. When he was printing the documents the I need to schedule the appointment for Biopsy, I looked at the screen on the computer and notify him that it is not my record. Immediately he told me to go back in the examiner room and have my blood pressure taken again. He came back in the room and without acknowledging or apologizing he start re-examining me. I was very upset ,lost confidence and trust. I decided that I will never come back to see him and that I need to call to my Primary Doctor and ask her to recommend me another specialist
