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.

While all of the health care providers I have seen at the CC are excellent, Dr. Tomecki goes above and beyond. Not only his concern for my health, but he always takes the time to talk with me just to see how I am doing.

Reviewed on Jun 16, 2020

When I tried to show the doctor some concerning areas on my skin he responded with "I just examined you didn't I? I saw those things already there is no reason to be concerned". which didn't make me less concerned.... reassurance with looking at the 3 spots I'd come to the office concerned about would have helped me more. also a treatment was recommended for me to have in the future. when I asked some about it, he said "we will give you a pamphlet that tells you everything". it was my first time seeing him and a more time spent addressing my concerns and answering my questions would have been most reassuring. he was with me for less than 15 minutes for my first visit. I'm sure he is experienced enough to believe he examined me thoroughly and answered my questions. that being said I could tell based on his demeanor he was rushing and felt more as an inconvenience in his day as opposed to valued as a patient.

Reviewed on Jun 10, 2020

Visit was preformed in a very professional manner. Examination was preformed - all conditions discussed and a treatment was recommended. I Left the Clinic knowing I was taken care of by an excellent Doctor.

Reviewed on Jun 10, 2020

The doctor was definitely concerned for me and my health. Unfortunately, a couple of times I tried to give him my story of what I've experienced and he cut me off to ask for a yes or no or a specific length of time. I appreciate that he's very busy, but it made me feel like he wasn't particularly concerned with me being a participant in my care.
