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 1/25/2021, Dr. Girgis 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 Girgis spent a solid 90 seconds talking to me as a person then the rest of the time typing. Not good with bedside manner. Even as I was speaking he was not even replying, just typing in my chart. The nurse had to correct him due to the fact he kept saying the wrong information about my medical history.

First time seeing this provider but so far it's all fine.

My husband and I have both recommended Dr. Girgis. He is reputable, knowledgeable, and compassionate toward his patients.

Reviewed on Jan 4, 2021

I was very impressed with the doctor! His assistant and then him, let me know that a medication I have been taking on a daily basis for years could effect my kidneys. I have quit taking it, except as needed for pain. All the years I have been taking this med. and not one doctor mentioned it. I am truly grateful!

Reviewed on Jan 4, 2021

The doctor answered a lot of unanswered questions that I had and spent sufficient time with me.

Reviewed on Jan 4, 2021

I would definitely recommend the doctor and staff to others that needed this type of care.

Reviewed on Dec 30, 2020

For the first time in my life, the doctor himself escorted me to where I needed to go for a test he ordered. It made me feel like my care was important to him.
