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 1/17/2020, Dr. Ali 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.

I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma in 2011. From then until now, Dr. Ali has been my oncologist. Within a very short time, Dr. Ali became my "role model" for what a physician should be. I could not possibly have found a better oncologist or received better, more compassionate care. I am grateful every day that I have him on my care team.

Reviewed on Jul 30, 2019

Dr Ali was very short with me and was not interested in helping me at all. He was in the room with me for just over 5 min. I have seen a lot of doctors at the clinic and he has been the least helpful of them all. His demeanor and attitude were terrible, not friendly or personal at all.

I'm 74 and have recently moved here from North Carolina. It's quite a process finding doctors especially if you have medical concerns. I made a few inquiries and Dr. Ali's name came up several times. My appointment was a very positive experience. Dr. Ali has a calming presence and was very generous with his time. I left his office with a positive feeling that I was in very good hands.

the doctor was running behind. when I asked the receptionist, she immediately checked to see what the delay was. shortly after I was taken to an exam room. the MA explained they were short on room and looking forward to when the space is remodeled in the near future. I felt the delay, although inconvenient, was handled appropriately and very well
