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 1/25/2018, Dr. Dean 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.

Very thankful that I was able to see Dr. Dean and get his recommendations for my care moving on with treating my cancer

Reviewed on May 23, 2018

I am giving fair remarks - I waited for over an hour - but I know that I was fit in to see Dr. Dean as a referral from Dr. Phinney before my chemo started. So I knew that I would be waiting and was probably the last patient of the day - no fault of Dr. Dean

Reviewed on May 23, 2018

There was no one at the desk when I left - Dr. Dean seemed to be the only one who really cared what was going on with me. Dr. Dean explained my diagnosis better to me and I left with more knowledge of what to expect.

Reviewed on May 21, 2018

To contact Dr Dean's office I used the My Chart electronic messaging system, rather than the telephone. His responses through this seem have always been prompt and relevant. I have found Dr Dean to be one of the most outstanding doctors I have ever encountered. His technical understanding of my medical condition has been superb and his ability to communicate it to me has been excellent. He is patient and listens to my questions and addresses them with real concern. Quite simply his attitude and enthusiasm have helped me deal with a difficult medical condition and have given me the strength and conviction I needed to carry on.

Dr. Dean explained what my cancer was and what my treatment options were. He took over and hour with my wife and I explaining everything to us. He demeanor put us at ease and over my course of treatments I have grown to trust his judgment.
