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.

Originally made appointment In February with Rebecca Kunstler for May 3rd. Appt was telemedicine appointment which was cancelled about a hour before the appointment. Very upsetting. Our physician here in Atlanta has cancelled his clinic to participate. Staff called and said cancelled. After several calls we changed physicians to Dr Levin and Ms MCNAMARA was communicative, asked us to come in person, set a date and we went. It is extremely difficult to travel as I cannot walk or sit for long periods. Dr Levin was exceptional, kind, patient, thoughtful and willing to help in every respect.

Dr. Levin was excellent. Perceptive, interested, inquisitive and kind. Could not have had a better experience. A superb physician.

Once we got past the fiasco with the telemedicine visit with Dr. Kunstler which was canceled by a clerk on the morning of the visit without warning and with no explanation, the care was excellent. So glad we got past it and were able to change physicians and see Dr. Levin. He was simply excellent.

Both Dr Eibling and Dr Levin show the utmost concern about my illness and indicated I had their full attention in getting diagnosis and treatment plan together as fast as the can since this has been an on going issue for the last 11months. My wife felt so good about this commitment. AMG was scheduled for the next day. Lab tests that day. The day after the EMG we received a phone call from Dr Eibling informing us of the EMG results.

I considered myself luck to get an appointment with Dr. Levin in less than two weeks from my original call.
