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 9/24/2019, 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.

Dr. See is absolutely amazing, including the staff at the main campus and the Independence office.

dr. See made me feel much more comfortable with deciding with my future surgery of a cornea transplant. He took the time and the patience to answer each and everyone of my questions; even if I asked him to clarify what he had stated. One of the items that I really appreciate it was his Constant attention to my case. The doctor that I went to in Hershey Pennsylvania, was in and out of the office numerous times. And appeared to be annoyed when I asked him questions that he thought I should have already known. Coming from a small town and never having to go through a transplant I was very hesitant. After talking to the doctor, I am absolutely ready for this surgery. Thank God for the Cleveland clinic.

Dr. See said that he was so delayed because they scheduled two days of patients into one day so he could interview residents. That is not fair to the patients who have scheduled appointments with him as they are being short changed with time and attention.
