Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

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 11/19/2018, Dr. Augustin 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.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

augustin is incredible! the way he works with my so is truly remarkable. Treats him with dignity and respect, recognizes his fears and anxieties before he says anything at all, then explains things to him in multiple ways including showing his CT to help him understand what is going on inside. Augustin acknowledges that his situation isn't fair or fun for an 18 year old but gives him hope for the future. I can't say enough about Dr. Augustin and his team.

Dr. Augustin didn't really give me many choices as far as decisions to be made. I felt I had to ask him for other choices to his treatment plans. Nothing terribly big.

Reviewed on Jan 17, 2019

Dr. Augustin was so kind and concerned, as always. He is always smiling and friendly. I appreciate his straightforward explanations and black and white approach. Truthfully, Dr. Augustin saved my life. This post surgery visit was just one of my experiences with him, through the whole process of diagnosis and treatment. I was much more than lucky to have been referred to Dr. Augustin as my surgeon. I and my family are eternally grateful for him - we wish we could give more thanks than just recommending his care to others, which we wholeheartedly do.
