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 9/12/2018, Dr. See 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.

Had a scratched eye, Dr See was never seen in the past but I don't have a specific optomologist. Have been to the same office before for another eye issue.

Reviewed on Sep 28, 2018

My experience was not great, but only because no solution to my eye problem seems to be available at this time. The doctor and all staff were pleasant, clear, and informative.

I highly recommend Dr. See. He listens and has effectively handled my condition. Thank you!

Dr. See is not my regular doctor. My doctor is Dr. Goshe. I came to the Cole center that day for a pre-op visit for surgery that was scheduled for Oct. 1. I was having second thoughts about going through with the surgery and wanted to speak to Dr. Goshe about it, but he wasn't available. His office contacted Dr. Goshe who asked Dr. See to see me. I was very impressed that Dr. See agreed to see me on such short notice, we went over all my concerns and he did additional testing on my eye. He examined me carefully and agreed that my vision had improved some, so it couldn't hurt to cancel the surgery and wait to see if I continued to improve. I greatly appreciated Dr. See's help.

Was there 2 hours and eyes were not dialated. Exam by nurse was right away and then had to wait for doctor which took an hour, then put in room where I waited another 20 minutes. Took way too long but I was told there were two people ahead of me.

Dr. See is great. I was very concerned about a problem I was having with my eyes and was able to get in to see him within a couple of days. When i walked into his office, he actually thanked me for coming to see him. But, the most important thing is that Dr. See was very professional, he gave me a thorough exam, and when he was finished he explained my problem to me very well and immediately told me his recommendation for my treatment plan. He was very kind and reassuring. I am very thankful that i was able to see Dr. See so soon and that he was able to assess my situation so quickly and determine what needed done. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
