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.

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.

Not only is Dr. Marcotty's expertise capable of changing lives of children, as a senior citizen I had a life changing experience. I had a degree of double vision all my life, and it increased over the years to where surgery was necessary. Thanks to Dr. Marcotty's outstanding skills and caring ways, my life has taken on a new dimension and I am experiencing it in a way that has been missing for a long time.

We have been seeing Dr Marcotty since June and he is just fantastic. My 3 year old baby girl told the nurses that he was the greatest dr ever. I had a hard time with her diagnosis and he took the time the next day to talk me through a meltdown of fears I had. Dr Marcotty and his staff make us feel so comfortable and reassured while making my beautiful baby feel special. They are wonderful and we are so thankful we were referred to them.

Getting access to any doctor in the cleveland clinic system is a nightmare. I needed a prescription refilled and I had to be transferred 5 different times to schedule an appointment then back to the doctors office over and over again. You've made what should be a simple process extremely hard. Our family has two doctors in the cleveland clinic network and we go to them because we value them highly. If they went elsewhere we would to. I LOVE Dr. Marcotty he has taken care of two of my three children's eyes and he has been wonderful to work with but trying to get 'to' him is such a challenge due to the Clinics ability to add steps, procedures, paperwork, phone call transfers etc etc between patient and doctor.

Dr Marcotty is the absolute best. My son hasspecial needs and going to any doctors office is an absolute battle and nightmare. Dr Marcotty has a special gift with children and is the only provider my son sees who is able to calm and relax my son with his funny voices and toys. He is also very intelligent and absolutely great at what he does and is never disrespectful. I would recommend him to anyone just as he was recommended to me!

Dr. Marcotty was running a little behind but it's because he's so thorough. He explains everything he's doing and why. He also never made me feel rushed, like he had somewhere else to be. I'm okay with a doctor running behind when they are as good as he is.
