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 8/4/2021, 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.

Dr. Punishment was very kind, understanding and thorough. I felt he took my concerns seriously and made logical recommendations on how to assist.

Dr. Punia is a terrific doctor. I would definitely recommend him to other patients.

Reviewed on Jun 4, 2021

I found this appointment useless. it had been well over a year since my last appointment. No discussion about expectations or concerns for the future. No real evidence that my file/history was reviewed for more than a minute prior to call. I didn't feel like asking any questions because I truly didn't feel I would hear anything but a textbook reply. I'm sorry but this is truly how I felt when the meeting ended after approximately 10 minutes. I felt sad about the lack of interest.PlusI couldn't. see the provider. His face was not visible throughout the call.

My care by my other Doctors is great! They take time to review and discuss my care and future, pro-active action or concerns. Dr. Dhillon is exceptional in following up with health problems.

I like that the doctor's office made the next appointment for me, instead of me calling certain number and wait for a long time in order to talk with someone to make the appointment.

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

Reviewed on May 17, 2021

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.
