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. Gota seemed to take her time & listened very well.
Reviewed on Feb 5, 2019
dr gota seems to have a lot of knowledge about the problem I was having but also seemed to dismiss what other drs had previously told me my diagnosis could be. I was given information but not as a discussion- more of a feeling of being "talked at." this was difficult to accept because I had just paid out of pocket for the visit being told it was so expensive because I was seeing the highest quality drs in the area and beyond. a discouraging experience for certain.

Dr Carmen Gota is one of the best doctors I have ever had and she truly cares about her patients and their lives

I struggled for a year with other providers, for treatment and a diagnosis. In one visit with Dr. Gota, she was provided me with more answers and treatment than I had received previously in the last year with other providers. CC is 3.5 hours away from my home and I will continue to make that visit rather than trusting in my previous providers. I walked away feeling confident after my visit!

Dr. Gota is very deft at her craft. Will do a thorough evaluation of a person's medical history, take time to talk to the patient honing in on what specifically you are being seen for yet ordering enough testing to ensure nothing has been remiss. She will respond to all questions promptly on "My Chart" giving diagnosis or elimination of questionable/presumed maladies from test results. If treatment is needed she will direct.

we drove 4 hrs to the Cleveland clinic to have the doctor I saw not review my past medical history, radiology test, blood work, etc. before entering the exam room. I have always heard great things about Cleveland clinic, however I certainly dis not recieve that same treatment. the doctor did not listen to me, have respect and told me the pain I was feeling couldn't be that bad as the size of my organ checked was minimally enlarged. I have been in the health care field for 26 yrs, this treatment that I recieved sicken me!!
