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 8/17/2023, 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 awesome. We really appreciate the care that she provides for my child.

The main purpose of our visit was because my son is on an IEP for speech. The doctor said my son had excellent vision today, but then voiced concern about maybe being farsighted in the future. She then voiced concern about my son's optic nerve and being high risk for glaucoma. I was pretty caught off guard by that information and was not prepared with questions. The doctor did not expand any further or give more information, but did send us for more testing. In her note on MyChart, she wrote "suspect glaucoma" leaving me more confused and worried.

Dr. Ghasia has always been kind & sweet to my son & answers all my questions kindly & helpfully.

Overall, I am not happy with the lack of respect to my time at this clinic. This was not the first time we had an excessive wait, but by far is the longest time we have ever waited. We were there for over 3 hours, and no one communicated anything to us to explain what was happening. No one acknowledged that we had been there for over 2 hours, and no one apologized for the wait time. All of that to see the Dr. For approximately 15 minutes. To make matters worse, parking is not free, and because of that, I had to pay the highest amount of parking fee due to someone else's poor time management. No one should be waiting for an eye appointment for 3+ hours

My daughter is five, but I felt like Dr. Ghasia was talking to a baby when she interacted with her. I wish I would have said something, because it really bothered me. I wondered afterward If she made assumptions about Molly's competence because she uses a wheelchair. I felt like there was no effort at all to get to know her as a patient, which Is what I was expecting at a first visit. We were late to the appointment, because I couldn't find parking, and did not understand where I needed to be on campus. I pushed her in her chair at least a half-mile to get to the building we needed to be in. I was very disappointed in the visit overall - but Dr. Ghasia's interactions with Molly were the worst part.
