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 9/25/2017, Dr. Muruve 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.

This was a follow-up visit for a biopsy and in these and prior visits I found Dr. Muruve and his team to be helpful and supportive. I communicated with Dr. Muruve and his staff via My Chart regarding questions and ordering blood tests and they were very responsive. My questions were answered patiently and respectfully.

Dr. called away for emergency surgery. I spent nearly three hours waiting and finally seeing DR.

Right now I can only giver you a Fair grade for "sensitivity". I was ready to walk out just as the Dr. came in. No one should be seated for 2-3 hours without food and in a fairly cold room...

I had a "one-off" operation performed by Dr Muruve. Overall, I would recommend him to family and friends. The hospital is 1 hr away by car so it is not convenient, but it works. Dr Muruve is a sympathetic listener and I like his "bed side manner"

Dr Muruve was polished and professional. He impressed me as knowledgeable and experienced. He was very businesslike and treated me with dignity and respect, I pray I did the same with him. He reviewed my charts, asked questions, listened to my answers and made informed replies. He explained what we were going to do on my next visit and how I should prepare for it. All in all he struck me as a fine, accomplished, skillful physician with the tools and abilities to best address the health issues I am facing, thank you.
