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 12/8/2017, Dr. Vlastaris 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.

Dr. V may have had a late start but she spent quality time with me and answered all my questions. It showed she gave the person prior to me the attention that was needed.

Reviewed on Jun 19, 2018

After a very late start, my appointment with Dr V was very productive and smooth. She has a great photo tutorial on various types of skin cancer, did a thorough exam of my skin, and answered the specific questions I had in a very understandable way.

I'm a little concerned about wait time for apt. Me appt. was scheduled for 8:45am and at 9:15am still did not see doctor. So I went to recept. who informed me my appt. wasn't until 9am. I asked why and was told new Clinic policy to book appts. 15 mins. before schedule time due to parking problem. Then I found out doctor was running late and it wasn't until 9:35a.m before I got called in. Someone could have informed me of these waiting issues

actually, the follow up with the PA was excellent (which was also after an ER weekend visit). She is the one who got me in the same day with the dermatologist realizing the urgency and pain of my wound. Dr. Catherine was excellent and gave me assurance of her diagnosis and care. I am very grateful for all that was done and would not hesitate to use the Richard E Jacobs facility again.

Dr was running behind, probably due to having to take more time with previous patients.

Wait time was fine but with this provider I wouldn't care if I had to wait. I know she will give me the same care and thoroughness she gives to those before me. She is one of my all time favorite physicians due to her concern for and attention to her patients.

Reviewed on Mar 7, 2018

Felt she was superficial and hurried in this first appointment prescribing treatment - definite impression of "hustling" to sign me up for treatment course to rack up "scores" for her record, No time for me to ask questions - would like to have had 5 minutes of undivided attention when I could have asked questions.

Reviewed on Nov 21, 2017

Dr. Vlasteris was VERY clear about everything that was asked or done during my visit. She is friendly and empathic

Reviewed on Sep 12, 2017

I was very impressed with Dr. Vlastaris. I found her to be very thorough. She really listened to me, and went beyond my initial concerns to rule out more serious illnesses. Additionally, she personally called me to follow-up on my care - I cannot remember the last time a doctor personally called me. I saw a private practice dermatologist for many years, but now I hope to make Dr. Vlastaris my "permanent" dermatologist.
