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.

I was able to get an appointment with Dr Janik the next day I called! I was very satisfied with his care. He decided to treat my condition (Alopecia Areata) right away, since it was pretty big bare patch, by doing steroids injections into the scalp. The pain was tolerable, and most likely I'd need to come back to take these injections one or two more times. Dr Janik took the time to explain to me everything about my condition & told me the best choice to get the best results. In the past, I've seen Dermatologists regarding different issues, and I could say without a doubt that Dr Janik by far is a better doctor than all of them. The reason is that, he is unlike the ones I've seen, gives you the time to explain your symptoms & listen to you carefully, then asks all kinds of questions & carry an informative conversation with you, so you can understand your condition and be able to make a decision regarding what to choose for your treatment. I was really very thankful for him for being such a kind person & an excellent doctor. I am going soon for my next injections & I already see some hair is growing back! Thanks Dr Janik.
