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 9/14/2020, Dr. Punia 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.

very easy visit. Dr. Punia made a simple medicine adjustment & I haven't an event since.

I had never seen Dr. Punia before but hope to again. I was very impressed with how attentive, compassionate and friendly he was. He listened carefully to some concerns I had about my medication based on some research I did without making me feel like a hypochondriac or, worse, as though I was trying to do HIS job because I researched on my own. In addition, he did not treat me like a "number." He asked about my profession which made me realize he had actually read my chart (considering I had never seen him before). I have doctors I've seen for years who probably have no idea what I do for a living.

I feel he really was not listening to me. I asked about another medication I could take instead of Vimpat due it' high costs and he just ignored the question. I don't think he understood me when I was telling him about my seizures because he wanted to up mu Vimpat, but I feel I am ok at my current dose. I sent him a message on the portal but i have not received a response on me staying on my current dosage. This really feels like my last doctor I had in Michigan so I might call and see if I can have another doctor.
