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 8/28/2017, Dr. Kosmorsky 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.

Provider is very hurried. Spends as little time as possible. Does not ask if I have questions. I feel like I am one of the cattle being herded along in and out as fast as possible. I do believe he is an exceptionally competent surgeon however, I have never felt more like cattle being rushed through as I did for my eye surgeries. He is very proud of how fast he can complete an eye surgery and how many people (cattle) he can get done in a morning but there is no feeling of being an individual who is being cared for.

All of Dr. Kosmorsky's staff were professional and efficient. From start to finish, my visit was like clockwork and very appreciated. Dr. Kosmorsky is one top-notch doctor. He listens!

Doctor gave no advice about how to deal with troubling side effects of the eye drops. Doctor gave an evaluation of 20/20 vision and said he could do nothing for me even though the letters I read for the evaluation were blurry to me.

Dr. casually informed me that I have a life altering disease, but provided no counseling or suggested follow up. This was cruel.

the provider was only in the exam room for a very few minutes. He did none of the screenings and only briefly looked at my eyes. My biggest concern is that his manner was extremely brusk, never making eye contact and seemed to be in a hurry to leave. When he left he said "it was nice meeting you". I had to laugh since I didn't feel as if we had met - no eye contact or introduction when he came in.
