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 10/3/2018, Dr. Dawoud 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.

I was very satisfied with my experience at Cleveland Clinic and in particular with Dr. Dawoud and his staff. They were extremely courteous and knowledgeable about my procedure. Dr. Dawoud answered every question I had and made me feel very at ease. Even though I live three hours away I would not hesitate to return to Cleveland Clinic should I need any more surgery. Also, Dr. Dawoud chose the best spinal cord stimulator company, St. Jude/Abbott, for my spinal cord stimulator. I am anxious for Cleveland Clinic to open a hospital in Indian River County.

Reviewed on Dec 14, 2018

Dr. Dawoud was very clear in his instructions about what I could and could not do as I recuperated from this procedure. His surgical scheduler was also very pleasant. she called after the surgery to see how I was doing. The person that helped install my spinal cord stimulator, John Shaw from St. Jude, also called me very regularly and if I had a question he returned my call immediately. I felt that even after the surgery everyone wanted this to succeed and stayed in contact with me.

This unrelenting pain started January 19, 2018, and in all that time seeing different specialists including numerous injections from a Pain Management doctor, I never felt as assured and hopeful as with Dr. Dawoud.

Reviewed on Aug 9, 2018

I was totally surprised and overjoyed that Dr. Amir Dawoud gave me the injection just a short time after our initial meeting. I was told this appointment would be for an initial evaluation only and that I would have to return to the Cleveland Clinic for his scheduled procedure day. I am so grateful.

I am very happy with Dr. Dawoud and his nursing staff. Dr. Dawoud, although busy, is calm and takes time to listen to me and I never feel rushed. His office scheduler Carmen is also quite wonderful and tries her best to accommodate me when I'm in need. I couldn't be happier with their services. I've had several epidural injections for my neck injury which have decreased my pain and helped me manage daily life much better. You are lucky to have Dr. Dawoud and his team onboard at Cleveland Clinic.
