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 11/12/2019, Dr. Jin 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.

Doctor Judy Jin was very easy to talk with. She explained my situation and her plans and concerns in detail. Dr. Jin listened to our concerns about my health and explained the upcoming surgery very well. We felt at ease with Dr. Jin performing the upcoming surgery after our meeting with her.

I can't say enough about how impressed I am with Dr. Jin. Her casual and friendly demeanor quickly put me at ease. Prior to coming to seeing Dr. Jin (and the reason I made a appt. with her), I had very bad experiences in dealing with local doctors and procedures administered by them. I was impressed, and very grateful, that after reviewing my tests, she provided an accurate diagnosis and then performed an ultrasound and biopsy during my initial appointment (this was not something I experienced with local doctors prior to coming to the Cleveland Clinic). Also my previous biopsy, again performed by local doctors, involved numerous needles (total of 14 for the biopsy of two nodes), pain and lasted 30 minutes to complete. Dr. Jin completed the biopsy in about one minute, with minimal pain, and provided instant feedback. Although I am still nervous about having surgery, I am very confident in Dr. Jin's knowledge and expertise and know I will be in good hands. I only wish I had come to her sooner and could have avoided so much angst and trauma.

initially I did not realize why my appointment had been scheduled with Dr. Jin who is a surgeon because I thought I would be seeing an endocrinologist. dr. Jin however answered the questions we came with but most importantly she was able to get me into see a pulmonary specialist who turned out to be tremendous. since I am an out of town patient I was most grateful to have been able to see this physician the same day as opposed to having to make the long return back. what began as an initial disappointment turned into a beneficial visit. thank you!
