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 8/21/2018, 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.
* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

While my overall experience was very good i felt that Dr. Chitluri appeared rushed. Her tone of voice and facial expressions made her seem impatient with me at times during my exam.

I feel Dr. Chitlari is quite competent & highly skilled in her field. Will definitely be back to see her as needed!

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

Dr. Chitluri was extremely rude, condescending, and wouldn't listen to my concerns. She acted like she didn't want to be there. I will not be returning to see her.

I thought the doctor was curt and intimidating. She was in a hurry and didn't fully answer my question when I asked how different my glass prescription was. She just said it was different. I will not go back to her.

I had a very good experience with Dr. Chitluri and her entire staff. I am a new patient as my previous eye doctor recently retired and I was referred to Dr. Chitluri by a friend of mine who is a current patient of Dr. Chitluri. I was very pleased with my visit and the care provided by Dr. Chitluri's office I definitely plan to continue to be a patient of Dr. Chitluri.
