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 8/31/2022, 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.

Excellent doctor who takes time to describe medical condition and what your options are.

The doctor was amazing honestly the best Dr I've had. He was amazing when he knew exactly what was going on with my body before I even told him. He was very thorough in ever aspects a dr could be and when I left the appointment I felt confident that Iwas getting the best cases possible. He wasn't arrogant or make me feel lesser and he was so kind. The rest of the staff from the receptionist to the lady's that worked in parking was 100% awesome. I would recommend anyone that needs medical care to go to Cleveland Clinic regardless how far away it's 100% worth it to get the best possible care a person could imagine. I'm impressed beyond words of how happy I was.

Very Good Doctor

Even though Dr Maleki was not who I was hoping to see he did a great job of talking with me about my fibromyalgia and dealing with pain. He also recommended 2 doctors for me to see, unfortunately at another time. We were able to set both appointments on the same day. The receptionist was very helpful in that respect.

Reviewed on Sep 23, 2021

Dr. Maleki is the most knowledgeable Doctor I have ever met. He took time to listen to how things have changed since I last saw him, and provided options for moving forward. He provided tremendous insight into my condition and discussed referral to a colleague specializing in recurrent Transverse Myelitis. His wit and wisdom surpass that of any specialist I have ever met (despite his mother saying he ONLY works at a clinic ;-) inside joke). My husband and I are fortunate to have Dr. Maleki as part of healthcare team. We HIGHLY recommend him.

I am from Pennsylvania and make the trip to Cleveland which is 4-1/2 hours one way. We usuall stay at a nearhy hotel. I would appreciate some consideration when scheduling appointments in view that we have the long trip and a stay overnite. Dr Maleki is a very good doctor and takes the time to explain the matter in detail. Thank you for the time.

Found Dr Maleki very good and would highly recommend him. Would appreciate his after visit notes faster. But under the circumstances acceptable.

Reviewed on Sep 15, 2021

He belittled the entire medical system in regard to any medications, procedures and surgeries accept his treatments or expertise. He was very condescending to both me and my husband. He was uncaring. He was unreceptive to test results and scans I had forwarded or carried with me. He spent more time on his soap box complaining about all patients and doctors than he did on my problems. His only treatment plan for my chronic back pain was to "sit up straight in a chair like a soldier increasing time over the next two years. He said I will feel better after doing that". When trying to share information and test results he laughed in my face. I feel it was a waste of time, money and time off work to drive three hours to and from Cleveland Clinic. I certainly received no help or hope.
