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 12/10/2017, Dr. Champagne 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.

I felt I was slightly rushed during this appointment. I was given news which I needed time to review and absorb and felt that once I said something it appeared to the physician it was my final decision....yet I was taken aback by the information. Upon reflection and time the decision will be reviewed with the recommending physician and I can proceed with treatment. Dr. Champagne is an absolutely wonderful surgeon...courteous, kind, excellent bedside manner and most of all - which I feel is needed in the medical community- is the sense of touch....he patted my arm and hand, graciously escorted me to the door...these to me are very personal courtesies which I like and felt treated as a human being....I just wished I could have talked with him a bit longer.

This dr. - *Dr. Champagne is the ONLY doctor I feel has had my best interest at heart. He is a fantastic surgeon and seems to care very very much about the pain I have endured. I wish I had had time to explain a bit more of my symptoms to him, but I was so excited about his referral to a surgeon that may finally help me I forgot to ask him some of my other concerns. But he is the very best dr. I have ever had - and I have had A LOT! *Dr. Champagne is the very very best!

Dr Champagne worked me in for surgery the next day because he knew I was in misery. ive never had a doctor go out of his way for me like that. Honestly, I was flabergasted. Im home now and recovering nicely!! It's nice to know that there are doctors out there who still truly care. I even had some questions regarding my recovery after the surgery sent a message to their office through my my chart account and was answered within 24 hours thanks so much
