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 10/3/2016, Dr. Kosmorsky 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. 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.

No real conversation about how or what to do regarding care for my concern.

I saw the care provider for literally 2 minutes and 17 seconds. He was arrogant, kept talking about his important VIP patients, and didn't listen to me as I tried to ask questions. I will go to non-CCF ophthalmologist next time and just pay out of pocket.

Dr. Kosmorsky was a whirlwind. He came in out 2 times. I can't even tell you if he washed his hands. He flew in the room. Looked in my eyes (he didn't even let me get situated with my chin in the cup) put 2 drops in my eyes and said he'd be back. After my eyes were dilated, he quickly came in, looked at my eyes and said there's nothing wrong and began to leave. I stopped him to ask a question. Said "deal with it". And began to leave. I asked another question. He quickly gave me an answer and then left. I guess I was a big inconvenience in his day wonder how inconvenient it is to get paid for seeing me.

Having cataracts removed from both eyes was an emotional event to say the least. The Dr. and surgical staff did an excellent job in alleviating the stress by keeping me informed to what they were going to do and the care and concern expressed by all members was helpful in calming the nerves. Great job to the staff and the clinic for a job well done both during surgery and the follow up care.
