Industry Relationships

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 2/1/2024, Dr. Garg 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.

Dr. Garg is a most excellent physician!

Reviewed on Dec 19, 2023

She was very helpful and had suggestions my physician has not tried yet.

Reviewed on Dec 13, 2023

Dr. Garg was very dismissive of my chronic pain from the beginning. She had no interest in providing any sort of care that would provide relief or benefit for my quality of life. She disregarded the explanation of my pain and didn't seem concerned AT ALL. I was very disappointed that not only my mother had to take time off from work, travel over 5 hours to be seen by someone at the Cleveland Clinic who we presumed would care about my quality of life. Dr. Garg was very dismissive and didn't seem to care at all. I have ZERO interest in ever seeing her again as a patient as she has no interest in increasing my quality of life. As an underweight female she disregarded all of my symptoms and simply ignored my pain. She should be extremely embarrassed to be a professional at the Cleveland Clinic and treat patients in chronic pain this way.

The nurses and supporting staff were great. I did not meet the actual doctor until entering the procedure room. Since this was a Colonoscopy, I saw who the doctor was and then was quickly asleep.

Dr Garg was 25 minutes late for appt. Didnt seem she did any/much preparation. Told me after 20 minutes she was being pinged and had another patient. I felt like an intrusion in her day. Truthfully this appointment was a waste of my time.

Reviewed on Mar 27, 2023

Dr. Garg was not compassionate and didnt seem to listen to what we, as the parents , had to say. She did not even acknowledge our son who was the patient. She more or less ignored him. I was very disappointed in her and would never want to recommend her to anyone. I felt that Cleveland Clinic would have more experience in dealing with special needs. Apparently I was wrong.

Reviewed on Mar 20, 2023

Dr. Garg was very thorough assessing my medical history and showed patience and compassion while learning about my symptoms and how they affect me in daily life. She was very supportive and I feel confident in the plan she put in place because she explained everything in great detail and made sure I understood everything she explained before I left the office.

Dr. Garg is an incredible doctor, and I feel so fortunate to be in her care. She has been with me every step of the way over the past 6 months to figure out the root of my problems.
