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.

Very good experience! So good, I wish I could have Dr. Gorodeski Baskin MD as my primary doctor. She is very caring, encouraging and really listens to the patient.

Reviewed on Feb 11, 2020

While the Dr. was an improvement over the nurse, she was rather laid back about my concerns. When she told me that eventually I would most likely need surgery, there was little explanation and very little empathy.

Reviewed on Feb 10, 2020

doctor Gorodeski-Baskin is outstanding. she is my father's endocrinologist and when I needed her type of service I chose her I've anyone else.

Reviewed on Feb 10, 2020

The doctor wasn't really listening. to my concern about what I was doing to help myself. She more or less. Doubt it some of the things that I was saying. being more of a scientist and not a listening ear to care.

Reviewed on Feb 5, 2020

Dr. Gorodeski is thorough, very knowledgeable and able to explain issues in lay terms. She is excellent!

Reviewed on Jan 27, 2020

Dr would like me to return for a follow up in six months but the calendar is not open six months out. So I have to remember to call back on the calendar does open up so I can schedule my next appointment. That seems a bit ridiculous.

For some appointments it has been difficult to schedule with Dr. Gorodeski-Baskin except to wait for several months until she has an opening. This is not a complaint about anything other than the business of her schedule.

this visit was for my annual checkup. this dr didnt hardly give me any physical. she said I had high blood pressure when I never had high blood pressure before and wanted me to take meds. never checked my thyroid or showed any concern for my diabetes. just wanted to give me meds for high blood pressure. I did go back and had it checked again and it was high. I wouldn't go back to her if I had to. she did schedule my normal blood tests. I would give her points for that. I then went in search of a new Dr.

I know tests needed to be done first but I felt a bit of an explanation of her thoughts as to what may or may not be happening would have been helpful. she is a very nice doctor but after I left I thought I really don't know what her thoughts are

the doctor seemed to be rushing me through my appointment and didn't really want to hear me explain about the problem I was experiencing with my thyroid. she got impatient with me and cut me off when I tried to explain my symptoms.

Dr. Gorodeski is very thorough, conscientious and kind. Appointments with her are also educational. She has taught me much about my medical issues. Her nurse, Christine, is wonderful also. Thank you.

Dr Gorodeski I was told was already booked through the year. that was bad news. But they put me on a waiting list and I received a call within a few days that they had an opening that was great news and I truly appreciated that.

Dr. G has always been great. She gave me answers on my life long hypoglycemia, and also told me that I could still lose weight even though I am a post-menopausal woman with hypo-thyroidism. I could not lose weight no matter how much I exercised. I thought my metabolism was zero. She explained that exercise is only about 20% responsible for weight ... diet is 80%. I went home and took a good look at my diet. I made some healthy changes and have lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks!

Reviewed on May 6, 2019

I have recommended this care provider to others. She is one of the best!

Reviewed on May 6, 2019

It is challenging to get an appointment with this provider. Could you please hire another endocrinologist?

one of the nicest Doctors I have met, always takes her time and asks many questions concerning my health

Reviewed on Apr 17, 2019

This the most inconsiderate doctor I ever meet. She said if I am not loosing pounds it is because I am not following the diet. She did not considered some factors like insulin resistance, my age, job related stress level, my health history. She did not even read my chart because she said that I have HTN and DM which I do not have.
