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.

I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Kurowski!! We saw him initially in consultation for a second opinion for our son who has ulcerative colitis. His knowledge, insight and guidance have added so much to our treatment team. He is awesome!!!

Dr. Kurowski took time to talk me through everything slowly. He then did the same for my teenager. He was respectanl that my child is almost 18 and will be in charge of his own medical care soon. He spoke in terms we could understand and answered all of our many questions. He was respectful of my child's gender identity. He made it a natural part of the conversation to check on how he identifies and what he would need from medical staff. In our previsit, he was the one who alerted us to Child Life. He should be training all the doctors. He is the ideal doctor.
