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 had a horrible time getting in touch with the Dr. No direct phone to his staff and the regular scheduler was not able to get me an appt before December. Totally unacceptable. After further calls and my insistance to get in to see the dr, I finally got an appointment & the sore on my arm is cancer and I need further surgery.

Reviewed on Sep 24, 2021

Dr Janik was wonderful, the staff at the clinic was wonderful as well. Calling the Cleveland clinic is a nightmare! For some reason you're not allowed to talk to any nurses?? I used to be a triage nurse for the Cleveland clinic and talk to about 50 to 60 patients per day at least! The prompts ask you to press one for an appointment or press two to talk to your doctor's office. If you press two you talk to someone who asks you a hundred questions and then asks when you would like to be seen? Why ask if I want to talk to the doctor's office if you're going to put me through to scheduling every time? I waited on hold the other day for 20 minutes just to get to scheduling when I had prompted for talking to the office. That person switched me to the office I told them my issue and they said hold please put me on hold for 7 to 10 minutes and then came back to say let me switch you to scheduling I told her not to bother. This is a poor representation of the doctors and nurses and staff working within the offices. Your phone system is less than perfect for sure.

Dr. Janik is one of the most conscientious, patient & informative doctors with whom I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. He Is very thorough with his examinations and always takes the time to fully explain his assessments and/or proposed treatment. Despite his attention to detail, with the help of the Dermatology staff, he Is still able to keep his appointments on time. Finally, the staffs at both of his locations are outstanding & extremely courteous.

I tried to follow the system via My Chart and then called the appointment line. After speaking live with a person on the appointment line, she said some one would return my call as a male dermatologist was unavailable within my desire for an appointment within three months. I waited ~ seven days for a follow-up call or contact and never received one. Therefore, I sent an email directly to Dr. Janik, he responded promptly, and I had an appointment scheduled within two weeks. Nicely done by his office!

Reviewed on Aug 24, 2021

I hope to have amore comprehensive view of most of my skin, no just the face, ears, arms, neck, and lower legs -- easily visible areas-- at my next appointment. The melanoma I had removed previously (at Cleveland Clinic) was on my back and that area wasn't reviewed at this appointment. That said, I have confidence in Dr. Janik's approach to care and overall involvement. Perhaps, I was spoiled with the thoroughness of the exams provided by Dr. Richard Ranchoff, a private dermatologist who retired within the last year.

Reviewed on Aug 24, 2021

I was in and out even before my appointment time. Felt rushed through the appointment. I think my age (older) had something to do with feeling "dismissed". Doctor was pleasant, but not very personable. First and only time I have felt that way by any doctor at the Cleveland Clinic.
