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 10/16/2018, Dr. Engel 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.

I have some retinal damage in my eyes and Dr Engle carefully explained the condition to me and compared my eye "x-rays" from two years ago to show me the small amt of change and the fact that I do not have to worry about it. In addition he is the best doctor I have ever had for finding a good Rx for my eyes (- which is to say he goes slowly and takes care to get the right prescription during the exam.) He is a wonderful doctor . I am so glad I was able to see him again.

Reviewed on Aug 8, 2018

I was sent to Dr. Engel by my Primary Doctor after calling her office with a problem I was having. I am so happy that I was sent to him. Dr Engel is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. He is compassionate and thorough and makes you feel that you are under the best care you could receive. I have already told my daughter to make her next eye appointment with him and no other Doctor. He is the very BEST!
