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.

Dr. G was very down to earth and had a wonderful bedside manner. He listened to my concerns and took time to fully explain results to my recent imaging. Most offices and providers just leave a message and state "everything was negative." When the reality is that everything wasn't negative, but a clear understanding of what was resulted is not known at this time. He promptly evaluated my symptoms and knew fasciculations are a muscle issue. He arranged and emg and appt with neuromuscular physician. It is so relieving to have someone look outside the box, and put all the small pieces to the puzzle together for the best outcome of the patient.

Dr Gostkowski seems to take the "standard" approach and methods for treating my Parkinsons. Several times since my diagnosis I have asked about what progression is likely for the disease and options other than my current meds. He doesn't really discuss these things much to any degree and seems to stress just staying the course. He did address my major sleep issues complaint and added a med which seems to help.

Dr. Gostkowski shows a realistic approach to a near-93 year old Parkinson's patient. He limits options to what is reasonable and will provide a better quality of life. On the other hand, the option of "doing nothing" is always presented in a non- judgemental way.

I have always been very thankful for the knowledge, energy and skill of the doctors I have had. I believe with my symptoms evolving or progressing we have come to the middle of the road. There are questions we still have as far as if there are any tests that can possibly be ran, medication to possibly try or just a new angle to look at at.
