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.

Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients.

Dr. Haywood has always taken the time to answer all my questions and concerns and I have been happy that my primary urology Dr., Dr. Nord out of Youngstown, included Dr. Haywood in my surveillance and treatment of my issue.

Reviewed on May 14, 2024

Dr. Haywood's administrative assistant, Jessica Skiles, was very good at getting back to me either by phone or email. She was efficient, friendly, timely, and well-informed. I was equally pleased with the MyChart Portal, a rich repository of guidance, information, and communication. Dr. Haywood was very good about answering my questions in a timely manner, either the same day or within a day. Being able to communicate directly with Dr. Haywood about my prostate cancer and upcoming surgery has been wonderful. Overall, I am quite pleased with the ability to get a timely appointment from Canada to be seen by Dr. Haywood. Scheduling the prostate biopsy and surgery has been timely and efficient. In Nova Scotia, communication with specialists is problematic, and long delays for procedures is unfortunately quite commonplace.

Reviewed on May 14, 2024

Dr. Haywood exceeded my expectations for for an oncological urologist. He was patient with me, enabled me to get my list of questions answered, not only about prostate cancer and my recent MRI, but also about the impending transperineal biopsy he would be performing. I have done a fair amount of solid research on prostate cancer and current trends in diagnosis and treatment, and what Dr. Haywood told me aligned with the research I have done. Nurse Molly in the biopsy procedure room was very helpful at putting me at ease and explaining the procedure to me. Again, my experience throughout exceeded my expectations, but I knew that the Cleveland Clinic, as a Center of Excellence for Prostate Cancer, would be very good.

Reviewed on May 14, 2024

I would recommend the Cleveland Clinic to anyone who needed world-class medical care. I would recommend Dr. Samuel Haywood to any man with serious prostate disease, especially cancer. His expert handling of my transperineal biopsy minimized my pain and discomfort.

Dr. Haywood spent very little time talking directly to me during the video visit. Even though I uploaded previous radiology reports well before our visit for a second opinion, it was obvious that he had not looked at them ahead of time. He spent most of the visit looking away (presumably at the info I sent ahead of time and other medical information on MyChart) while also furiously typing away.
