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.

GI office very pleasant. Dr. Adhami and staff including front desk all very nice and efficient. Dr. could have been a little more explanative but very nice demeanor.

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.

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

Dr Adhami is one of the best physicians I've had the pleasure to meet. Kind . Always answers and seeks questions. And his treatment of my condition is spot on.

Dr. Adhami has been my Gi/Liver doctor for 13 years. My opinion is he is the best there is. He always spends time with me and is willing to answer all of my questions. He is without question a real asset to the Cleveland clinic. I truly don't know what I would do without him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been a patient of Dr Adhami for many years. I cannot recommend him enough-he is caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I actually look forward to my appointments with him.

As well as Dr. Adhami, Fellow was very attentive and reviewed procedure as well.

Dr. had minimal empathy. Just another patient. Didn't get back to me about test results until after I sent multiple emails. Still hasn't responded to follow up questions. Not a good representative of a "caring" organization. Will be looking for another provider.

I have no out patients experience with him. I saw him in the hospital only. Dr.Adhami is very knowledgeable and great communicator.

Reviewed on Apr 9, 2019

My appt was scheduled at 1:40pm. I arrived at 1:12 pm. The doctor kept me waiting for 45 minutes. He came into the exam room at 2:25pm.

Reviewed on Apr 9, 2019

There was very little eye contact during the visit. My overall feeling was that the Dr. was distracted & in a hurry. He entered the room said hello, shook my hand & went straight to the computer screen. He never inquired how I was doing or feeling. He instructed me to schedule some procedures, but there was little opportunity to ask questions or discuss concerns. When he was done at the computer he got up & exited the room. I left feeling rushed & frustrated & with more questions than I went in with.

Reviewed on Mar 5, 2019

Dr. Adhami was great, as always. I feel very comfortable with him as he makes my appointments pleasant and enjoyable.
