Dr. Avneesh Gupte was dismissed as a non-medical associate of CCSVI Clinic for just cause based on several incidents that occurred in the performance of his duties as well as acts of medical misconduct that happened during his tenure at Noble Hospital in Pune, MH, India.  Numerous complaints have been filed by both CCSVI Clinic and former patients with the Indian Medical Council. He is currently under investigation for multiple breaches including distributing confidential patient information as well as breaching legal and ethical boundaries set for all physicians who are in a position of trust. The severity of these breaches has resulted in irreparably damage to CCSVI Clinic’s relationship with certain patients who are under study, as well as the study itself. Dr. Avneesh Gupte will be held responsible for any damages arising from his actions.
Please note that Dr. Avneesh Gupte is currently engaging in medical tourism by promoting procedures, methods, techniques and services as developed by CCSVI Clinic under the sanction of Internal Review Board approval. In doing so, and in practicing medicine outside of proper authority, he is circumventing certain legal agreements, requirements of Indian Medical Council Code of Ethics, numerous privacy laws, International Cellular Medicine Society (ICMS) guidelines, including multiple violations of ethics under `The Code of Ethics’ of the Medical Council of India, namely under Articles 1.9, Evasion of Legal Restrictions, 2.2 Patience, Delicacy and Secrecy4.2, Conduct in Consultation, as well as numerous other ethical codes under Item 6.0 Ethics, including, 6.1.1.
Dr. Avneesh Gupte is also in violation of multiple International Laws represented by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations.

All prospective patients should be aware of the serious complaints against Dr. Avneesh Gupte, that he does not require patient Informed Consent as required by ICMS regulations, does not perform the Combination Therapy protocol as he claims, and will distribute any and all private personal medical information for commercial gain without authorization or compensation.  As there are now civil and criminal law suits being prepared against Dr. Avneesh Gupte for fraud and violations of professional ethics, all patients should govern themselves accordingly.
