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 would just like to add, that Dr. G is like seeing a friend, not a doctor. He gave me hope, when I was ready to give up. Because of him, I get my life back. I was embarrassed to go out in public, now, I can, without people staring at me. I don't think I could have gone through, having Dystonia, without him!

I see Dr. Gostkowski every 6 months. It is very hard to figure out when to call to make that check up appointment, because every time I call, I am told that his appointments for that time have not been opened yet. This is very frustrating for me as a patient.

Reviewed on Jul 11, 2019

When I see Dr. Gostkowski, I come in with a list of concerns. He goes through each item on my list and explains everything to me in a way that I can understand. For example, I asked him about a medication that I am not taking and he told me the benefits and the risks. I trust Dr. Gostkowski to treat my neurological disorder now and in the future. He is one of the very best doctors I have ever had, if not the best.

New Dr and said he would refuse to prescribe a medication and put me on one that I'm not even sure I need as he didn't explain it. He was fair, not the friendliness Dr I usually have at other facilities. It was my first visit with him, maybe it will get better or I will find another specialist.
