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 a cancer survivor, I am blessed to be able to see Dr. Koc every 6 months for the last 10 years. He has an excellent bed side manner, shows genuine care and concern for any questions, and takes the time to listen to what I have to say during the appointment. I have never had to wait more than a couple of minutes when I had an appointment with Dr. Koc (and most of the time, I don't have to wait at all). He is prompt and efficient. His job is not easy, but he maintains a calm, professional demeanor at every encounter (and he has a good sense of humor).
