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.

Dr. Goyal's sense of humor was greatly appreciated. I was in a "great" deal of pain. He is such a kind, compassionate, and seemed to be very attentive to my needs, both, emotionally as well as physically. I felt very comfortable with him. Thank you Dr. Goyal for the efforts you put forth.

I highly recommend Dr K Goyal

Reviewed on Dec 3, 2019

Dr. Goyal treated me like I was coming to see him to get a prescription for pain or that I was "too young" to be experiencing any neck/back pain. I was simply referred by my physical therapist so that my spine could be monitored by a spine doctor because the pain has progressively become worse over time. I'm absolutely not happy with him and will be changing doctors. I did not feel comfortable with him. He was rude-he didn't introduce himself when he came into my room. I understand that doctors have to ask questions to understand what the problem is but he was asking me questions in an accusatory manner and I did not appreciate that at all. Extremely disappointed with that experience overall. I rarely do these surveys, but I had to complete a survey for this visit.

Reviewed on Nov 19, 2019

Dr. Goyal explained what to possibly do next, where, and when. It was great!

Reviewed on Nov 14, 2019

I thank Dr Goyal for listening to me and treating me as a person, not just the sum total of my medical charts and MRIs. His diagnosis and prescribed treatment has relieved me of much pain and restored a greater amount of range of motion. I have recommended him to several people already.
