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 1/26/2018, Dr. Castele 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.

This was my last visit before Dr. Castele retires. He asked if there were any questions before he turned me over to another doctor and provided me with names of other doctors in the system that he would recommend.

Reviewed on Apr 25, 2018

Dr. Castele and his staff are very prompt with the office visit. I really hate to see him leave but he certainly deserves a wonderful retirement. I couldn't believe he actually called his patients himself. I received excellent care and learned much about my conditions because of the time he took to answer my questions and explain everything. He will be missed.

Am able to speak to the Doctor any time and always receive excellent advice.

Dr. Castele, the best

Reviewed on Jul 6, 2017

Dr. Castele was pretty dismissive during my most recent visit. Rushed me through to the point of rudeness. I will seek another pulmonary care specialist.

Reviewed on Jun 1, 2017

I was very pleased that the doctor called me to explain the results of the tests he had ordered as soon as he received them and before my follow-up appointment.
