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 10/28/2018, Dr. Zutshi 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.

Dr. Zutshi gave me great eye contact, listened well to my concerns, gave me excellent guidance, and partnered well with me.

Dr. Zutchi is an excellent compassionate practitioner. Keep her happy to continue her services at CC.

Dr. Zutshi was dismissive, and abrupt during my visit. I could clearly tell she felt as though I was wasting her time. My opinions, and concerns weren't taken into account at all. Considering my commute was over an hour, the fact my appointment lasted no longer than 10 minutes is unacceptable in my opinion. First, and only, bad experience I've had at the Cleveland Clinic. Thank you for your time.

Dr. was very insightful and presented practical solutions in addition to detailed medical information. Allowed me knowledgable decision making. Provided access to other medical specialities if needed in the future through her office vs. general scheduling (which I find difficult). Much appreciated.

Dr Zutshi did an excellent job developing a plan of care to address my current colorectal concerns
Reviewed on Jul 17, 2018
I've had over 40 colorectal surgeries by multiple providers. Doctor Zutshi has done the last 2 and she has been wonderful. She handles complex problems with quick thinking and deft hands. I'm so lucky I found her in 2014 so my endless cycle of surgeries could finally end. Thank you Dr. Zutshi, you helped me to live again.
