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 2/17/2021, Dr. Preston 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.

I really liked Dr Devon. He really listened to all of my symptoms and theories I had about my allergic reaction. He was so kind and great.

Reviewed on Sep 10, 2021

Dr Preston is exactly how a patient imagines/hopes a doctor will be, though the real life experience often does not match up. Preston is a great listener, very personable, takes the appropriate amount of time with patients, seems to help his colleagues - he walked my paperwork up front with me, helped in the process for scheduling the follow up with the add'l specialist... He seems to love his job and take patient care seriously, put patients first. He made a lasting impression -- to the point where I've told all family and friends what a greta experience I've had with Dr Preston and with the LWFHC. I LOVE when appointments are available at that facility!

As far as allergies, and Immunology goes, Dr. Preston is the nucleus of this department. I've NEVER met a doctor, let alone, a black doctor, who is knowledgeable, and in tune with his patients needs, self care, and helping us find REAL solutions, to problems most people don't have to deal with.

I have never felt more seen, heard, or cared for by a doctor. Dr. Preston is so amazing and went over and above. He created what my field of work refers to as a "soft hand-offs" by introducing me to the next staff member I would deal with and followed up with counseling information. Whatever you are paying this doctor, it's not enough.

Dr. Preston is very knowledgeable when answering my questions and I really liked how he explained his rationale behind every action he was suggesting for treatment. I want to emphasize Dr. Preston's suggestion of treatment because never once did I feel he was forcing his idea of treatment upon me but rather discussing it with me.

I have nothing but fantastic things to say about Dr. DeVon Preston and his staff. I have a myriad of health issues that he, my PCP, and my cardiologist are untangling. Though he is relatively young, he is very knowledgeable. Dr. Preston is also very much involved in communicating with his patients rather than passing it off to an assistant. because my health issues are complex ... to put it mildly ... this is MOST appreciated after having no relief for almost 50 years. Dr. Preston treats me as a person and not a problem. He takes the time to make SURE that I understand what our goals are and where we are heading next. This is very empowering. God bless Dr. Preston and his staff. I *finally* feel I have an immunologist invested in my best interest and is engaging me in those decisions. Please make sure upper administration knows this. Doctors like Dr. Preston are extremely rare. I have seen enough to know this as hard fact. Thank you for providing an opportunity to state everything I have said. please do not take any of this lightly. I have had a rough time finding a doctor who believed my issues, much less delve deeper to find out what was going on. I and my husband are very grateful to have Dr. Preston helping me feel like a real person again. In my husband's words, he said, "I feel like I have my wife back.". Gets you right in the heart to hear that. that's Dr. Preston's doings.Best regards.

I prefer in-person visits, but am immunodeficient. So, the video appointment is actually very helpful. Going for labs, I still sometimes catch a virus. Masked and gloved, I am still at high risk. I miss seeing my physician in-person. However, virtual visits really ARE safest for me.
