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. Marcellus 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.

My only negative experience with regards to sensitivity for my needs had to do with the LASIK procedure and not with Dr. Marcellus. I did not enjoy the fact that I underwent my procedure in a room with loud rock music playing. it was very challenging for me to relax during the procedure due to that and it significantly increased my anxiety level.

I waited 1 hour 15 minutes in the exam room for Dr. Marcellus to come in. I had another appointment, so I decided to leave. On my way out the door he was in the room next door talking with the nurses, but came running after me saying my exam would only take 10 minutes. This was true because he didn't even dialate my eyes or get any history of my past exams. I went to him because my regular doctor, Dr. Sholliton is retiring. I don't think I got an adequate exam, and I will encourage my insurance not to pay the charge.

I would go see Dr. Marcellus again. He was very personable and easy to talk too. I felt he was also professional and listened to my concerns. However, the wait time was very long (over an hour and a half.) I had a meeting that I needed to attend that evening at my school, however, this long wait put me behind as well.

I saw Dr Marcellus before he came to CCF and I had to search him out to find out he was there. Dr Marcellus is an amazing person who treats his patients with respect, bedside manner is what all physicians regardless of specialty should aspire to be. I look to referring my adult children to see him here. the only issue I have is ordering my contacts which has been a phone tag game for past couple of weeks!!! that process needs to improve as well as how they process the vision insurance there as I'm being billed for the visit! but I will come here to see Dr Marcellus again for certain!

Dr. Marcellus was extremely friendly, approachable, and relatable. while also being very knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable and welcome as soon as he came in, and his sense of humor was just an added bonus. I would recommend Dr. Marcellus to everyone!
