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.

Dr. Jin is wonderful .... makes you feel calm .

Reviewed on Jan 13, 2020

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.
