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.

our GI doctor is very good and thorough. he wants what's best for my son and cares about him as a person. I really appreciate his objective opinion. he accounts for every aspect of my son's care (not just GI) more than any of his other doctors. we are so happy to have him!

We've been very impressed & pleased with *Dr. Kurowski. He devotes a great deal of time to discussing issues, answering questions, etc. We never feel rushed, and if/when there is a wait at the office - it is worth it. Most importantly, Grant's Crohn's has been better managed for certain since we transferred his care to CC.

awesome doctor!!

Reviewed on Jan 10, 2020

We absolutely adore Dr. Kurowski. My daughter has seen numerous gastroenterologist and no one could help her. Dr. Kurowski really changed her life, she no longer has stomach pain or bowel issues. If your child is having trouble with their bowels and stomach pain, I urge you to make an appointment with him. My daughter suffered for years, we went to so many doctors and no one helped her. He is very friendly and listens to what you say.

Dr. Kurowski was awesome. He was personable. we both weren't sure why my son had the appt. Dr. Kurowski took a lot of time to explain what he thought could be going on with my son's post nasal drip and his allergies. he didn't believe there was a problem in my sons esophagus or his digestive system. he throughly examined my son to be sure. we really liked Dr. Kurowski a lot. He listened, he took his time answering all of our questions. He really cared and even felt bad it was kind of a wasted visit. Dr. Kurowski was very informative about possible issues that could arise but truly didn't believe my son was having an issue. Said to keep a watch on him and to not hesitate to call his office with any questions. Dr. Kurowski was a pleasure. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Kurowski is an amazing physician. He listens to the patient and parent - asks questions - draws pictures for patients and parents - never rushes you - and always lets you leave feeling better than when you came in - and with a plan for going forward . He is always available to take a call or respond through his nurse . He is down to earth , relatable for his pediatric patients , friendly and caring . We can't say enough and would recommend him to any pediatric gastro patient without reservation .
