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 10/2/2017, Dr. Janik 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.

Excellent experience with Dr. Janik. He really listens.

Reviewed on Jan 4, 2018

I feel he was very concerned about my condition. I know he took the time to consult with other Derms. and tried very hard to solve my problems. He was always willing to respond when I would send him messages and seemed to feel my pain when things were not progressing. He explained everything and I know he was puzzled as to my results but still never seemed to give up. I would highly recommend him to friends. We are still in the process of resolving my condition but I feel we are possibly on the right track now. I will continue to follow up with him and know that he is very determined to diagnose me the best he can.

Best physician I've seen at Clinic!

Dr. Janik is very thorough and explains things meticulously. He is very caring. He addresses your concerns and recognizes any anxieties you might have about your condition. When my biopsy came back as cancerous he eased my fears by explaining exactly what needed to be done next and the kinds of doctors I would be needing. I live about an hour away from his office but have no hesitation in traveling that far to see him. I have told many people about what an excellent physician he is.

Dr. Janik is one of the best (if not the best) care providers. He is a natural when it comes to including the patient as a member of their own health care team. He thoroughly explains every detail, including billing, which allows you as a patient to make an informed decision. He is respectful and patient. It is clear that Dr. Janik truly cares for his patients and is passionate about his chosen profession. His general attitude makes the entire process much less daunting. Having a care provider like Dr. Janik restores my faith in the medical community. It has been a pleasure to have him as a member of my team.
