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 2/15/2019, Dr. Costandi 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.

it took me a month to get appt.to see the doctor for my problem and another month for my procedure. they told me too go too er if I felt this was needed or got worse. I told the doctor about it and he told me he and another dr. where the only pain management drs. and he was just as busy. he apologized to me for the long wait. I love dr constandi and his care for his patients. but nobody should have too wait that long to see someone when there in pain. this won't stop me from seeing him because I think he is that good and he cares for his patients.

Dr. Costandi combines his professionalism with an affable manner and an approachability that makes it easier to relate all my concerns and particulars of why I was visiting him. I was very confident by the end of this consult that he would accomplish the drill-down to a proper diagnosis and treatment options for the numbness in my shoulder and pain that toggles on and off during the day. I felt comfortable with choosing him, and in my perspective, he added to my overall positive impression of Cleveland Clinic services. I'm glad you were able to recruit this kind of caring talent.

She was thorough, and her listening skills were sharp enough to pick up points that needed clarification. Quality care there on the pre-physician part of the visit.

Dr. Costandi always valued my input in what I wanted with regard to any medication I was prescribed to the surgeries that were performed. Everything was always explained in depth to me and I never felt out of the loop.

I never waiting more than 10 minutes before being seen by a care provider. It was clear to me how important time management is to the Cleveland Clinic staff.
