Industry Relationships

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 9/25/2018, Dr. Deasy 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.

I waited three (3) hrs. to see the Dr. I was told it took so long because he had to give quite a few second opinions, and some of the patients were very talkative. Consequently, he was in and out of my appointment in 8 minutes. I was rushed and didn't even have time for questions. I believe Dr. Deasy is a good Dr., but doubt I will ever use the CC Cole Institute in the future.

Dr. Deasy is an outstanding macular degeneration specialist and is kind and informative.

Reviewed on May 9, 2018

The first time I had an appointment with Dr. Deasy, he was two hours late due to serving an emergency patient elsewhere, and several other patients waiting for him were ahead of me, so it was an additional hour anda half before he could see me. This was not his fault, and I was glad he stayed overtime to serve all the patients still waiting.

Reviewed on May 4, 2018

I can say only good comments about Dr. Deasy. He is very caring, knowlegable & thorough. I have the greatest respect for him as the one caring for my macular degeneration. Whenever have an appointment with him, I feel I am in good hands, and he gives my condition as good care as I'm going to get.

I was taken in for the preliminary exam within 20 minutes of my appointment time. I had to wait an hour plus to see Dr. Deasy, but this is totally understandable due to the nature of emergencies in eye care. I have needed emergency eye care with my previous eye doctor, so waiting comes with the territory of seeing a good retinal specialist.
