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 10/13/2020, Dr. Ghasia 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.

Dr. Ghasia is great when you finally see her, but the visit is prolonged here every time because of waits between seeing the MA and the doctor, and it's very challenging with a young child.

Dr. Ghasia is a professional who understands how to interact with patients.

The Doctor is warm and caring. She takes time to explain everything. I would recommend her to everyone looking for a pediatric eye specialist.

My daughter Lyla is a hard one to work with for doctors and you and your staff do very weep with her temper tantrums and make her feel safe. I would recommended you to any of my friends with small children in need of a eye doctor!

Dr. Ghasia clearly understands what she is doing very well. However, when I asked questions (how to get her glasses to fit better, how to encourage her to wear them more) her responses were condescending and seemed to assume that I was not doing the best I could. I don't want to waste a doctor's time explaining personal reasons why our lives are hectic and messy; I would appreciate a partnership where I could seek help without unnecessary criticism, which just makes me more hesitant to ask the questions I would like to ask. The doctor spoke down to me when I told her honestly that my daughter is not wearing her glasses all day long. I then added that she is not wearing them because they are hurting her behind one ear, and asked for advice to fix it. It would have been nice to have gotten a recommendation on how to find a model of glasses my daughter's size, or where to go to begin with- none was offered. I went to my own optometrist who was not great with kids, and got a pair of glasses that fit fine but which my daughter thereafter refused to wear because the strap interfered with her hair. I bought two online, which she loves but do not fit as well, and I had trouble adjusting them, which causes her to look over the top instead of through the lens. These are technical things that I would love more guidance with- we are new to this. However, when I asked for advice fixing the glasses she does wear, the doctor told me, "that's why you shouldn't buy online. Go to a real eye glass store and get them to fix them for you." PS I did go to "get them fixed" by a 3rd party, and was told they should be fine as they were.

Dr. Ghasia imore than fantastic. She was extremely thorough which led to a diagnosis that landed me in the hospital for a serious medical problem. She demonstrated a genuine interest in my well-being. Her follow up was above and beyond expectations.

We love *Dr. Ghasia. She's been taking care of our daughter for the past 2 years. Very knowledgeable & nice.

I learned about a problem the doctor identified only by reading the note on My Chart, and not from our discussion at the visit. As a result I did not have the opportunity to ask questions about it or understand how serious the problem is.
