Industry Relationships

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 9/5/2023, Dr. Seipel 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.

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.

Reviewed on Nov 6, 2023

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Seipel after a series of very bad appointments with another provider. I went into the appointment not feeling particularly confident or hopeful that he'd be able to help me or would really listen to my issues. But he was INCREDIBLE. He treated my concerns like puzzles to be solved, giving me a variety of types of vision tests, trying out various types of contact lenses and retesting until we found the right fit. I left able to see perfectly for the first time in months -- but honestly, probably better than I've been able to see in years. I felt like he really cared about problem-solving for me and WITH me, and he really listened to me rather than talking over me or past me. I am so grateful for his help and literally recommended him to my colleagues via text as I was walking out of the appointment.

Reviewed on Nov 6, 2023

I had a bad experience with one provider at this practice, who I will not go back to. But Dr. Seipel made up for it by being so helpful and so kind. I would be delighted to see him again and to enthusiastically recommend him to anyone else looking for a quality ophthalmologist.
