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.

I've been to other providers for the same issue. Dr. Cabral and the endocrine staff at Cleveland Clinic are by far the best of the best. I appreciate that there is a program for education about managing diabetes rather than just a quarterly visit and a prescription. Dr. Cabral spent time to listen and understand my issues before making his decision for treatment. I appreciate that.
