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 4/18/2024, Dr. Misbah has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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.

My entire experience (5-1/2 years) of being treated at the Cleveland Clinic's Breast Center has been amazing. From Dr. Pratt who performed my breast surgery in August 2018 to Dr. Misbah who gave me my final breast exam, the caring and professionalism shown by ALL the Cleveland Clinic cancer breast care providers has been EXCELLENT. I cannot imagine being treated better by any other facility.

Reviewed on Jan 23, 2024

Dr Misbah is very nice but a little intense. She needs to be a calmer presence. Instead of a discussion it felt more like strict instructions.

Doctor always kind

Reviewed on Jun 15, 2023

Though I know Dr. Misbah is extremely knowledgeable in her field, she lacks excessively in LISTENING to her patients! She is VERY forward with her knowledge but needs to see each patient as an individual and understand that it is not always "one size fits all" when it comes to medication! I am beyond frustrated with the way I was handled as her patient.
