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 2/9/2017, Dr. Dean 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.

Eased my mind about my concerns

Dr. Dean always included me in making decisions about my treatment. He explained to me about the different options of treatment, risk and benefits, information about medications, and steps in follow-up care. I feel that I am well informed and confident after each visit.

Dr Dean makes me feel very confident in the event the NHL reoccurs with a logical check up plan and two courses of action regarding the type of b cell lymphoma involved. I can lead my life without worrying what comes next.

We have always felt that Dr. Dean is 'guiding' us in my husband's treatment plan. We've never not felt that we have the final 'say' in how we proceed. He explains things better than any doctor I've ever encountered (and I worked in the medical field for 20 yrs).

Nothing but praises for Dr Robert Dean! He has been very patient and caring with me and my on going medical condition. Always explains my lab work and scans with me. With my lab work, Dr Dean always shows me what were the current results along with the past results. Always takes time with you and and never seems to hurry you along. Dr Dean makes you feel very comfortable.

This visit was necessary as the clinic required clearance prior to heart surgery. My oncologist for a cancer that has never needed treatment is with another system. Dr. Dean was very pleasant, easy to understand, and I felt that he listed to my history as well as read my reports.

Dr. Dean is an absolute treasure. If you could clone him I truly believe our healthcare problems in this country could be greatly reduced. A super doctor, a wonderful person, and it really doesn't get any better than that, does it?
