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 9/13/2020, Dr. Maleki 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.

Dr. Maleki is AMAZING! I came in for issues not listed as his primary practice, but he noticed I had other issues and solved a very longstanding issue for me. He is kind, funny and engaging. He is an expert in his field. I feel so lucky I got randomly scheduled with him. He's an angel!

Dr. Makeki listened to my disabled son and really helped him understand how making small changes over a period of time could really change things over the long run. He was very kind, a great listener and provided other resources to improve someone's daily life. He also had a great sense of humor!

Dr Maleki was the most sincere and kind physician I have met in a very long time. He answered all my questions. I felt like he was interested in holistic treatment. too many providers only want a co-pay and to provide symptom abatement. I want a long term solution. and I felt like Dr Maleki listened and responded to all my needs. there are not enough stars to rate him.

Dr. Maleki is obviously well qualified and is a credit to his profession. I was treated with respect and dignity. My only dissatisfaction would be with the selection process of Dr. Maleki. I articulated that I was having trouble with my ability to walk properly, a movement issue. Instead I was assigned a doctor whose specialty was pain management. I was certain that I had expressed my lack of ability to walk properly without the fear of falling.

I have already told people about Dr.Makeli. People suffering from back pain who aren't getting proper care in Steubenville, OH, just pain pills. I told Dr. Makeli about my allergies to narcotics and tylenol, he believed me and share he experienced the same issue with another patient. He did not violate HIPPA! He simply explained he understood my reaction to medications

Dr Maleki took his time and examining me and asked many questions. Also explained my concerns

Reviewed on Feb 14, 2020

I've already recommended him and there needs to be more doctors like him. He didn't insist that I was too young and that I'd heal like every other doctor tries to tell me. I will be 30 soon and that is a lousy excuse to give someone who has had issues all their life. I appreciate that this doctor actually took my issue seriously and he was skilled enough to tell me how to fix the problems and not just cover them up with pain killers, meds, and surgery.

Reviewed on Jan 29, 2020

Dr provided thorough insight. He took extra time to help me be able to remember the treatment plan he outlined.
