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 1/30/2017, Dr. Kerwin 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.

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.
* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

There aren't enough words to describe the awesome care given to me by Dr. Kerwin.

I feel the only thing that could be improved is the allotment of more "flexibility time"with each appointment as everyone's needs are different at different times especially with a terminal diagnosis.

I was very impressed with Dr Kerwin and his concern for me. His nurse Pam is also very nice and caring. I was referred to their office by Dr Braumbhatt and I needed a Colon Cancer surgeon. Dr Kerwin and Pam were very professional in explaining they could not help me and were very apologetic but made sure I got to a doctor I needed. They made me feel special and I truly appreciate being treated that way.

Dr. Kerwin was fantastic! We had been referred to him because of an anomalous test result that potentially jeopardized pending surgery. Dr. Kerwin was VERY kind and reassuring, told us there was nothing to worry about and everything was fine, and that the test probably had been unnecessary. We only wish that someone had CALLED with that news and saved us the time and trauma of a trip to Fairview. But we did enjoy meeting Dr. Kerwin, since no one intervened in the process.
