Patrick Collier, MD, PhD, FASE, is a cardiologist in the Section of Cardiovascular Imaging in the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, in the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic. He is a Co-Director of the Cardio-Oncology Center and is an Assistant Professor at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University.

Specialty Interests: Heart valve disease, thoracic aortic disease, endocarditis, pericardial disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, cancer-related heart disease (cardio-oncology), multi-modality cardiovascular imaging, echocardiogram, transesophageal echocardiogram

Number of Procedures Performed: Each year, Dr. Collier reads approximately 4,000 echocardiogram (echo) studies, including transthoracic echo, transesophageal echo (TEE), dobutamine stress echo, exercise stress echo, specific left ventricular assist device and pacemaker studies. He also participates in echo-guided interventional procedures (Pericardiocentesis, TAVR, E-Clip, Balloon Valvuloplasty, Alcohol Septal Ablation, Watchman Device Insertion) and operating room consultations (including epicardial echo).

Success Rates: Cleveland Clinic has been ranked the #1 hospital for cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report since 1994. Success rates for specific procedures are available at: http://my.clevelandclinic.org/heart/about-heart-vascular-institute/treatment-outcomes.aspx

Education and Training: Dr. Collier was the top overall undergraduate in his final medicine class at National University of Ireland in Cork. He completed his internship and residencies in medicine and surgery at Cork University & Mid-Western Regional Hospitals. Dr. Collier was a cardiology fellow in the National Cardiology Training Programme and earned his PhD at University College Dublin, completing a Clinician Scientist fellowship involving translational medical research in the area of cardiac fibrosis (heart scarring). He completed an additional fellowship in multimodality cardiovascular imaging at Cleveland Clinic, and was appointed to Cleveland Clinic professional staff in 2013.

Research, Publications and Speaking: Dr. Collier is heavily involved in research, including his roles as CEC Chair of the multicenter INTREPID trial, Physician Reviewer for the C5 Imaging Core Lab (Juventas JTCS-004 Trial Study; St. Jude Lifetime Cohort Study Echocardiographic Detection of Treatment-related Cardiac Dysfunction in Adult Survivors of Childhood Cancer), and Clinical Adjudicator for the Sapien 3 Partner II Trial. His research interests include echocardiography, cardiac fibrosis, bicuspid aortic valve disease and cancer therapy-related heart disease. He is collaborating with a group of physicians and scientists to better understand the pathophysiology of these disorders.

Dr. Collier is widely published in leading medical journals, including Circulation, and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. He has written many book chapters related to valve disease.  He also serves as a reviewer for Circulation, European Journal of Heart Failure, Heart (BMJ Group), Journal of Cardiovascular CT and Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography.

He has given numerous presentations at professional meetings and symposiums, including the Keystone Symposium

About Dr. Collier: “I enjoy working as a doctor because it is a true privilege and honor to be able to help other people. Cardiovascular imaging is a particularly fascinating area to work in, as current technology often provides incredible images that can clearly show the inner workings of the heart and blood vessels to help guide appropriate treatments for patients.”

Leisure time activities: Dr Collier enjoys spending as much time as possible with family. His hobbies include music and sports, in particular golf and soccer. He is a former South of Ireland golf champion.

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. The 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, the Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 5/27/2015, Dr. Collier 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 the 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.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.
