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 11/17/2017, Dr. Kolczun has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. 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. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

had to wait 3 hours to see the doctor

Exceptional experience. Professional and caring. I would most definitely recommend Dr Kolczun and his staff to anyone. Great listener who explained my options in language I could understand.
Reviewed on Apr 17, 2018
I appreciate the fact that Dr. Kolczun may run over in the length of time he is with a patient. it demonstrates the fact that he is more concerned with them than adhering to a specific time schedule. I never mind waiting in his office because I know he is giving the same quality of care to other patients that I will receive when he sees me.

I thought Dr Kilczun really took the time to explain my situation and what the options are. I can tell he cares about his patients. The only thing that I did not like is how he talked to me about losing weight but that is not an easy topic to discuss.

I disagreed with his diagnosis. I had another orthopedic surgeon give me an entirely different diagnosis but I had to switch drs because my insurance changed.
Reviewed on Jan 9, 2018
I may have to wait for to see dr. but he spends as much time as I need when it is my turn.

The whole process was a very good experience for me.
