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 9/19/2020, Dr. Crabb 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 Crabb is awesome!

Dr. Crabb has a nice personality, gave me good information and did a great exam. I'm glad I found her.

Reviewed on May 3, 2021

Dr. Crabb seemed courteous and pleasant. This was my first visit with her. She also seemed rushed and told me that she was 'behind.' I got the impression that she was not completely confident about certain aspects of the exam because she recommended that I make a future appointment with Dr. Lisa Lystad who is currently on medical leave. To me it implied that Dr. Lystad could give me a better exam. Nonetheless, Dr. Crabb gave me a new eyeglass prescription which I am not sure I should get fulfilled.

Dr Crabb was wonderful. I am very happy with the care I received.

Reviewed on Aug 14, 2020

Upon entering the front desk, the receptionist handed me someone else's medical questionnaire. This was an honest mistake, but a HIPPA violation nontheless. The receptionist laughed it off. That is not something to laugh about. Additionally, in the examination Dr. Crab seemed to function as if I should automatically know what she was talking about. She told me I had cataracts and did not volunteer much additional information. I had to ask her. I am used to medical professionals explaining things thoroughly. I left with what I thought was incomplete imformation. I had to email Dr.Crab later that day, after I had processed what questions I should have asked. Finally, she may have been having a bad day but seemed fairly disinterested in my case. I will probably schedule with someone else next time .

excellent visit. dr crabb was very thorough.

Reviewed on Jun 29, 2020

Excellent experience. I felt something wrong with my eyesight and sought an eye exam to confirm my suspicions that the cataracts had grown sufficiently over the last year. Another option offered to me was an appt. in September with another of my eye doctors. Turns out that a new pair of glasses will not correct the vision issue. Surgery will. This is important for me to know.
