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 9/27/2022, Dr. McGannon 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.

I have nothing but praise for Dr. McGannon so far. He and his staff are very helpful, kindly answer any questions I've forgotten to ask through "MyChart". Everyone at the Independence CC have been stellar, unlike a certain Ophthalmologist at the Strongsville and downtown locations. I look forward to Dr. McGannon working to help improve my vision! A very special "Thank You" to both Ashley (lost my note with your name, I'm sorry!) and Leigh who went above and beyond to make sure my eye care needs were addressed. Ladies, both of you, deserve so much more than just a simple Thank You. Again, both of you, are priceless to the Cleveland Clinic and it's patients!!

My exam was handled by all the team members who checked my vision, then applied drops and then set me to be seen by doctor McGannon who answered all my questions during the exam and wished me well and then advised another recheck in 1 year unless a concern arose and then to contact him for evaluation. It was a great experience and I felt comfortable and respected and will return as advised.
