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 10/11/2021, Dr. Randleman 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.

Saw Dr. Marcellus but he was in consultation with Dr. Randelman

Dr. Randleman was more enthusiastic about selling another surgery and didn't care to problem solve my vision problem. He twice mentioned a tear pump surgery snd I never complained about dry eye syndrome. He's arrogant and disconnected from his patients.

All of my care has been great. I was scared to have my cataracts removed and Dr. Randleman Is fabulous along with his staff.

I never saw Dr Randleman and was told I would see the doctor not someone else. Very poor form.

Unless urged otherwise by me, Dr. Randleman didn't provide any information about side effects, risks or benefits. He prescribed a pain reliever that I was highly allergic to and cause intense pain to me. He would have known I was allergic if he had consulted me or my medical records.

I was very pleased with Dr. Randleman's involvement and concern. His team was also great. I really appreciated their smarts and time and investment. I have *a new hope* for my situation, and though it is May 4th, I am not making a Star Wars joke--I mean it. I have a new optimism that there is a solution to my vision problems.

Dr. Randelman was top notch from the start. He explained things so I understood, and helped me with options. He was easy to talk to and I was very comfortable and confident in him as my surgeon for cataract surgery.

The care provider came out in the waiting area to inform me and coordinate my visit with the persons I traveled to The Cleveland Clinic together with.
