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 2/14/2023, 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.

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.

Doctor was in room immediately. No wait time. Impressive

Best I've ever had 100%. I've already have recommended him to friends

Reviewed on Sep 8, 2023

Dr. Constandi is impersonal and always in a hurry. He has been treating me for over a year and half the time I wasn't sure what he was doing.

Reviewed on Aug 22, 2023

Awesome experience, DR. CONSTANDI IS INCREDIBLE in his field.

I'm thankful to have found Dr. Costandi. Following my praise, my husband is now a patient as well as two other gentlemen.

Dr. Costandi is the best! And so kind and caring.

Reviewed on Jun 8, 2023

Dr. Costandi & staff are genuinely trying to help me improve my back issues. I appreciate all their efforts.

Reviewed on Jun 8, 2023

Dr. Costandi has a very poor bedside manner. When I asked questions he seemed "put out" as if I was questioning his judgement. When I appeared upset, he just left the room. His resident/fellow stayed in the room and apologized. Not what I expected from the Cleveland Clinic.

Reviewed on May 12, 2023

Although the doctor and I disagree on one portion of my care plan, it is only a minor thing. I believe that he is acting in my best interests.

Reviewed on Apr 28, 2023

So grateful for the care I received at Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Constandi and his team are professional, caring and amazing at all they do.

Reviewed on Apr 19, 2023

Dr Costandi is great and seems like he is very much on board with everything and happy to help.

Reviewed on Apr 19, 2023

I came to Dr. Constandi for pain management, and he has taken me off the opioids I was taking for pain, but he has not provided me with a satisfactory alternative. After my recent attempt to install a stimulator, I was and still am in considerable pain. The medications he has me taking are not working. I do not feel he has addressed the level of pain I am in.

Reviewed on Mar 28, 2023

Dr Costandi knows his stuff!

Excellent coordination and interaction between all my different care providers. They all work together well to provide me great care. They seem to collaborate to problem solve my particular therapy needs.

Reviewed on Mar 15, 2023

Dr. Constandi has always been focused and concerned about me as a patient.

Reviewed on Mar 8, 2023

I feel as if he was judging me because I told him I would think about his diagnosis and what he proposed for me

I had an outstanding experience with Dr. Costandi.

Dr. Costandi has provided me with non-drug, near pain free living for which I am grateful!

I remembered how l was treated my first experience with Dr. Costandi and that's why I returned. All was top shelf both times.

Reviewed on Feb 1, 2023

Very good experience. The doc is doing his best to help me feel better.

Reviewed on Dec 20, 2022

Dr Costandi was very curt. I could have handled that if he discussed anything with me and didn't hurt through the appointment. There was no discussion about anything, just a guess at a diagnosis a referral for MRI and a shove out the door.

Reviewed on Dec 20, 2022

Dr. Costandi's office has been excellent to deal with!

Reviewed on Dec 20, 2022

Dr. Costandi is an absolutely great doctor. His concern, explanations, and compassion is greatly appreciated I have, and will again recommend him highly!

Reviewed on Dec 16, 2022

It took several looks at my scans and xrays then when Dr Castandi looked at them he discovered the cyst. Give him an A+!

Reviewed on Dec 14, 2022

Dr. Costandi was the eptimome of a medical professional. He listened to my concerns and his questions proved to me that his attention was centered on my medical issues.

Reviewed on Dec 9, 2022

Dr. Costandi has performed more than one procedure on me...always with great success. I wouldn't consider going to a different doctor.
