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.

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.

Called 3 times, talked to same lady to schedule appt. Finally some days later doctor's office called me. It was not doctor's office whom I had talked to, but she said I had to call through the cancer center. I had seen Dr Polhman in 2015, so I really was not a "new" patient. Everyone in his office was super nice, and Dr Pohlman was extremely informative & took his time with us. I recommend him highly. Thank you.

I can not say enough wonderful things about Dr. Pohlman. he is by far the best. his knowledge astounds me yet he explains everything in terms I understand. I feel like he is just a "friend" when he walks in the office. He is personable and goes the extra step to make you feel comfortable and heard. I have never felt raced through a visit, he acknowledges and is welcoming to everyone who comes with me. he engages in conversation and always seems happy to do so. And he got me into remission. I feel respected and cared for deeply.

Reviewed on Mar 19, 2019

Dr. Pohlman has been my oncologist for several years. I have complete confidence in him. After greeting me, he immediately told me that I was fine. He had ordered multiple tests so he knew my status, and gave me the great news first, then went into more detail. There have been appointments in the past where the news was NOT good, but Dr. Pohlman had a way of discussing scary subjects that made me able to listen and understand what he was saying, rather than freaking out. He's really special.

Dr. Pohlman always hears my concerns throughly and does everything to make sure my remission continues. sometimes it is difficult to live with the anxiety of a possible relapse and it is very comforting that when concerns arise they are treated with seriousness and kindness.
