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 3/11/2019, Dr. Girzhel 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.

Dr Girzhel is fantastic! She listens and spends time with you. The only problem is that it's so difficult to get an appointment with her.

Reviewed on Apr 3, 2019

although delayed coming in, Dr. Ghirzel was apologetic and was very thorough. She is an amazing listener, and I would recommend her highly.

Reviewed on Apr 3, 2019

I was promptly taken from waiting room to patient room by medical assistant; however, I then waited almost 20 minutes for the physician.

Dr. Girzhel is wonderful. She sets a great example of patient care to the doctor(s) in training with her.

Dr. Girzhel is by far the BEST doctor I've worked with through the entire clinic. She is hands down, the kindest, most knowledgeable doctor. She is almost always on time. She listens to her patients. She is very honest with you (regardless if it's bad news or good) She hears your own personal wants/needs and does her best to abide, even if it means pushing the boundaries a little. Dr. Girzhel has been my OBGYN for over 10 years and I will continue to see her until she retires!

Reviewed on Nov 7, 2018

This was my first visit with Dr Julie. I had a previous OB that I found more and more difficult to communicate with and get appointments with. My mom recommended Dr. Julie. Both her offices are close and convenient for me. She was very nice and I felt comfortable with her. She eased my mind and gave me the answers to some concerns that I had with my health. I plan on continuing to see Dr. Julie in the future.

Reviewed on Nov 7, 2018

I was in the office for maybe a total of 45 mins. That included checking in and giving some more information being that I was a first time patient of Dr. Julie. I only sat down for maybe 5 mins before I was asked to come back to the exam room. After the nurse asked some questions and took my vitals it was maybe another 5 minutes before Dr. Julie came in. The rest of the time was spent on questions and my exam. If I hadn't known what time my appointment was and the time I was done I wouldn't have even realized it was the length it was. I felt the I was in and out quickly but also not in a rushed way.

Reviewed on Oct 30, 2018

Dr. Girzhel has always provided excellent care to me. She is an excellent listener and makes you feel comfortable. She is amazing.

Reviewed on Sep 25, 2018

I will never complain about wait time bc Dr. Ghirzel is always worth the wait. I know her office is always busy but I know she is never too busy for me.
