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.

Dr. Borst has been an intricate piece in saving my life. it's truly rare to find someone who is in the medical field that takes a genuine interest in their patient inside and outside of the office. personal relationships are also a form of medicine and when someone feels more than a patient, it can go a long way to bring healing effects into their life.

I had to book my appointments a year out. I feel The Clinics demand on the doctors time causes patients to go elsewhere.

Reviewed on Aug 14, 2018

it took way to long to get this appointment, I don't feel it was Dr Borst fault, it was totally the person making the appointment for me. Dr Borst seemed very surprised i had to wait 5 MONTHS to get this appointment. I even requested to take an earlier appointment if there was cancellations, I got a email 2 weeks before the appointment I already had. I can't believe in 5 months that was his first cancellation.

I am fairly picky about finding an endocrinologist and I feel like Dr. Borst will be a good fit. He has experience with insulin pump technology and the in-office a1c test was convenient. I'm thrilled to see him.

Doctor Borst's office is great. I always have a positive experience during my appointments. I am understanding of the challenges getting an appointment with him, because his schedule is booked well in advance. However, I have always been able to get an appointment during an appropriate range.

I've always enjoyed good health having never spent much time sick or hurt at a Hosptal or Dr. office. now I have an issue that must be dealt with and it really kind of scared me. my health is very important to me. Dr. Borst has really helped to get my bearings with this and by always explaining things to me has given me confidence that I can handle this and be an active participant in the solution rather than feeling like a fish out of water and clueless. So, thank you Dr. Borst!!!
