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 1/15/2019, Dr. Purcell 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.

This was probably the BEST doctor's office experience of my life! Dr. Purcell was excellent at all of the above and more. He and his nurse excel at establishing rapport, which to me is the foundation of great health care.

Dr Purcell was EXCELLENT. I've been an RN for 20 years, and I could tell he was extremely knowledgable about the topic at hand. He spent a lot of time with me, so much that it actually surprised me.

Reviewed on Aug 20, 2018

There's hardly ever a wait time in Dr. Purcell's office. Even when a lot of patients walk in for allergy shots, they are calm and swift, and everyone stays happy.

Reviewed on Jul 2, 2018

DR. Purcell was very profecional

Reviewed on May 16, 2018

I don't feel like the provider was really listening to what I was saying. Made me feel like my child was just having a panic attack despite the fact I mentioned several times she was calm. He told us to try breathing exercises when she felt like she could not breathe. He told me it was mpossible for her to stop breathing. We tried these exercises after the appointment and it did absolutely nothing. We had to give 2 injections of epi and go to the local ER because she felt her throat was closing up. I do not trust anything he said to me. He also told me she was feeling this way (itching and thick air) was due to congestion and post nasal drip. Again we told him several times that she had no post nasal drip or stuffiness until the day of the appointment. it did not explain the multiple times she had previous issues.
