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 12/11/2017, Dr. Kassouf 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.

I forgot to mention before, that while I always have a short wait here, I feel like Dr. Kassouf and her team have all the time in the world to listen to why I am there, have conversations about my health and family. I never feel rushed and I always thank her for spending so much time with me. She says of course, it is her job and she is there for me.

Dr. Kassouf is an exceptional physician. She is extremely knowledgeable and caring. My family of six has been her patient for over 10 years. We all highly recommend her!!!

Love love love Dr. Kassouf!!! She is pleasant and warm and comfortable and beyond intelligent! She is super easy to talk to and can speak to her patients in a way that we can understand. She genuinely cares for her patients and it shows. Office staff is always pleasant and courteous. My only complaint would be the length of time it takes to get an appointment. Which is kind of a catch 22 in that you don't get a good provider and open availability in scheduling. Overall. Never a bad experience in her office!

It took 8 months to see the doctor. My son had to see the doctor because of a skin issue and he had to wait 6 months. Way too long.We have been seeing this doctor for at least 8 years. It should not take this long to get an appointment to see her.

I checked in and by the time I reached the waiting room they were ready for me. The nurse took care of going over my medical information and within 10 minutes the Doctor came in. I received a full body scan for skin cancers and we found only one which was quickly removed. I was able to complete the whole visit in about 30 minutes yet I did not feel rushed. I made my next appointment before leaving the office.

Dr. Kassouf is well spoken and clear in her diagnosis as well as any recommendations. She answers all questions, listens to what you have to say, and includes you in the decisions regarding treatment and health matters.

The wait time in the lobby after I checked in was 25 minutes. Then I waited 35 minutes in the exam room for the doctor to come in. So my appointment was at 11:45 but I didn't see the doctor until an hour later. Not good!

l like Dr Kousaff very much. I have seen her several times for checkups and laser procedures. she has an easy manner, a sense iof humor and most importantly know her business. she has always answered questions and concerns before we start. I'm very comfortable with her and extremely happy with her care and the care of her staff.

i was taken back immediately but then left to wait in the room with no magazines, in my gown (which i was told to change into while the nurse was checking me in and in the room still) for 45 minutes. It would be nice if someone would update the patients on the wait time. I thought they had forgotten about me. I love Dr. Kassouf but this visit was very disappointing.

My care at Cleveland Clinic Dermatology has been very good, but I am returning to my non -CCF dermatologist for the time being for sentimental reasons. I have been a pt with him for 30 years and I think I will stay with him until he retires-- and then return to CCF.

I have a complex medical condition with several chronic diseases. I "audition" doctors first to see if they will work with my other doctors. I feel that the doctors that I have now are the cream of the crop; and that includes Dr. Kassouf.
