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 9/11/2017, Dr. Cherian 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.

Dr. Cherian gave me a clear picture re: next steps he feels I should take. The appointment with the epilepsy center was scheduled for the next week. Unfortunately a family emergency out of town caused me to cancel that appointment. When I returned home and tried to reschedule an appointment with the epilepsy center the waiting period was April 3rd. This causes me some concern. Dr. Cherian asked that I be seen by that specialist. before he wants to see me again. I am concerned about medication - my prescription will not be covered by my insurance in that time.

The doctor provided me with a very comprehensive plan of action for my condition.

I was extremely pleased with the time and attention Dr. Cherian took during my visit. It was clear he had reviewed the records/test results I sent before he spoke with me. He was very through and documented the relevant information from our discussion. In the 20 years I have been seeking relief from my condition, I do not believe any other single doctor has gotten all the information together in one place like he was able to do. It was easy to understand him and the follow up care involves a couple of things that have not be identified before. I wish I had met with him years ago!

I actually LOVE Dr. Neil as he is always so helpful, he can joke around with me to make me feel comfortable and also still get across what needs to be done... I can not say enough good things about him.

Dr Cherian was attentive, thoughtful and, I thought, very thorough. His questioning was careful and persistent, I would say he was working to get the clearest clinical picture. His conclusions made sense.

Dr. Cherian was the best doctor I have ever seen. He spent time with me, explained everything in an easy to understand way, did a very thorough examination, answered all my questions, and made me feel like he was interested in what I had to say rather than being in a hurry to get to his next patient. I have never been to a more thoughtful, caring doctor.

More than pleased with Dr. Cherian and nurse practitioner thank you!
