Industry Relationships

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 6/3/2022, Dr. Goyal 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. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

I LOVE Dr Goyal, he's been taking great care of me for years. He recognizes my individual needs and listens to what I have to say about what helps me as well as keeping me informed about anything I need to know. Not a lot of Doctors are as considerate and understanding as he is~ even when it comes to making our appointments at times that are good for me, considering that I have had a painfully inconvenient past of having transportation problems for getting TO some appointments!! I really appreciate that! He's just a swell guy.

Singularly, the finest most complete analysis of my disability issues ever by any MD. In fact, the highest rating I could possibly rate this physician and worth my trip from Mismi just for his analysis

The Dr. That visited me during my stay was very informative. Even after she gave me all the information, I still was concerned and had questions. She followed up with me the next day and certainly helped put my mind at ease.

Reviewed on Sep 28, 2021

My only concern was while admitted, I felt I needed to move forward with another treatment option, but the doctor was persistent to start with pain management. After I left tbr hospital, I was back to being in the same amount of pain. I now have another appointment for a steroid injection. I feel this should have been done during my visit.

Unable to upload recent MRI with the itransfer web site. A VERY POOR site. It appears IT staff need additional training. Your WEB provider insisted itransfer data was received but IT staff was UNABLE TO ACCESS nor DR> GOYAL. This procedure deserves a "Very Poor (1)" .
