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.

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.

Dr. Stephan is not only an outstanding clinician but a warm, friendly and very likeable person. He answers questions with very considered, fact based and informed responses in a very understandable manner. it is great that he is an Associate Professor so that others may benefit from his knowledge and skills as well as his patient-focused effectiveness. He is so well informed and shares his knowledge about trials and new developments. I feel he listens extremely patiently and thoughtfully responding in a manner specific to the patient while forming a customized treatment program best for the patient.

Dr. Stephans could not have been more helpful. He explained the various treatment options, answered all our questions and detailed the statistical data on the various treatment outcomes. Indeed, he encouraged us to get a second opinion at the Mayo Clinic on a treatment therapy not offered at the Clinic.

once again from Dr.Stevens to his assistants all were class acts!!

During this process I have dealt with many doctors at a variety of hospitals. Dr. Stevens is far superior to all of them because of his knowledge, patience with questions, his ability to fully explain a diagnosis and treatment options. and a general caring approach. I did a lot of research since my diagnosis, and it is a relief to know that I can stop doing that, and can trust him to select the best treatment for my condition.

Kevin Stephans is the most caring, intelligent and well-versed oncologist I've met in 8 years trying to manage cancer. He is incredibly patient-focused and willing to think creatively on how he can best facilitate the patient taking advantage of current and emerging medical oncology. He has extremely high emotional intelligence and lays out options and alternatives for the patient's future in a realistic fashion. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Stephans on my cancer care team at Taussig.
