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 4/2/2020, Dr. Mascarinas has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing.

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.

Since I have seen Dr Mascarinas many times the video follow up works well because she knows my case. I would not want a video visit for a first appointment when the Dr knows nothing about me. at her in person visits she did a lot of examining and having me move or walk. So after a procedure this is good.

Dr. Mascarinas is always very professional and very concerned about your well being. She is kind & patient during the procedure and explains everything before she does it so there are no surprises. You know exactly what will be happening. She suggested that I have a MRI Before the procedure to see if there were any changes with my back. It was a good call because there were changes. SHE IS THE BEST - and YES, I would recommend her and I have!!
