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.

I was in great pain. It would have been wonderful if I could have gotten in when the pain was so bad. However I had to wait weeks for availability to be seen. This is a general problem with all Cleveland clinic appointments. Not aimed at dr Samual. Also the Wait time on hold when I call the clinic for anything is way too long.

Very nice experience. Doctor Samual very nice and concerned for me.

Reviewed on Sep 21, 2021

Dr. Samuel was great; however, the fellow or intern that was with Dr. Samuel was extremely disrespectful. She did not allow me to complete my sentences when explaining my symptoms and medical history. She actually tried completing my sentences for me and her interpretations of what I was trying to say were incorrect. I felt very unheard and invalidated.

Reviewed on Sep 14, 2021

I was seen initially by the fellow, Dr. Christina Shin. She was OUTSTANDING. Very comprehensive questioning of the history of the source of my problem and range of symptoms. Extensive real-time reference to imaging and very clear explanations of the injury mechanism and course of treatment. Very bright but clear spoken.

Dr. Samuels did the appointment. no problems.

Reviewed on Jun 23, 2021

One thing that threw me was one of the first things Dr. Samuels asked me was 'have you found a diagnosis yet?' What?!? I thought that's why I've been working with Cleveland Clinic?? I mentioned that I plan to go to a rheumatologist because 'Fibromyalgia' was mentioned to me, to which Dr. Samuels rolled his eyes. So I'm supposed to find my own diagnosis somehow, but making that attempt leads to eye rolls from my provider??
