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.

Dr. Tulisiak is a fantastic doctor. I can tell he genuinely cares for his patients as a person. He took the time to listen to my concerns, I never felt rushed, and he took the time to answer my questions and provide any explanation. I felt was thorough during the exam. I would definitely recommend him to others, except for that he will be retiring in a few months.

Dr. Tulusiak was exemplary in his courtesy and conversation and bed-side manner. In a day when many health care providers have lost the "personal" aspect, it was refreshing and comforting to speak frankly with Dr. Tulusiak and to receive knowledgable answers but with kindness and peace-of-mind. He demonstrates excellent customer service and his medical expertise is wonderful. Thank you, Dr. Tulusiak for a positive and productive visit.
