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 Toms Augustin and his staff are outstanding

Reviewed on Apr 11, 2024

Your Dr Augustin is the best and most dedicated doctor I have ever met. He saved my life. He made it incredibly easy to get the care I needed and when I needed it, and he performed back to back 8 hour surgeries to fit me in. He follows up with me and addresses all my concerns. He took my case and performed an especially difficult whipple procedure that my Pittsburgh doctor refused and probably couldn't have done. He is a premier jewel among jewels. I'm sure you already know that but I wanted to emphasize it.
