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 9/4/2019, Dr. Chitluri 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 there to seek professional help for my eyes and when I found out I had a defect, dr chitluri couldn't even explain it to me, and was so rude to me.

This provider always seems rushed and isn't very warm and friendly. The only reason I have seen her because there was no other provider at my closest health center.

Reviewed on May 7, 2019

this was my second time seeing this provider, and I can say with absolute certainty that I will never return. she was rude, cold, told me I scheduled my appointment wrong, told me CCF doesn't care for well-being of their doctors. she spent 10 minutes with me and treated me so poorly, that she actually made me cry. i am completely disappointed in CCF having someone who is so entitled and unapologetic to her rude demeanor. this woman should not be practicing medicine - she obviously doesn't care about putting patients first.

The doctor does not come across as approachable.

We just don't feel we have a good wavelength or rapport with this doctor. We have seen her before, and feel like we've done something wrong when we've left. We feel we've given her some mos information which strains the visit. We try to give honest reactions & answers.

Dr Anita Chitluri is always professional, kind, informative and relatable. I enjoy my visit each time, she is also genuinely caring.
