As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

Jose is an excellent provider and is the ONLY reason I continue to use the Cleveland Clinic - the waiting time prior to the start of the appointment is always long, but he ALWAYS dedicates as much time as I need to discuss all my issues and concerns - I am certain that if he does this with me, he does this with others, which causes delays.

I had a 945 appointment edit 1030 when I saw that my name wasn't called I had to get up and ask for assistance. I was concerned that I'd had not heard my name called and I was to blame. Come to find out the doctor was running over an hour to an hour and a half behind schedule

Having an appointment with Dr. Cabral puts you at ease. He never rushes, answers all your questions, and you come away feeling that you have had a visit with an friend.

Dr. Cabral often runs late because he takes the necessary time with each of his patients. However, i never feel as though I am left hanging, his staff does a great job of keeping things moving forward. I appreciate that he spent time with each patient. This is why I consider him the best.

This visit with Dr. Cabral, as with others in the past, left me feeling good and reassured about my condition. Dr. Cabral is easy to talk to, answers questions and adjusts or dispels information that I bring to the appointment as appropriate. I totally agree with his pragmatic approach and greatly his expertise in treating me.

Dr. Cabral showed compassion and empathy. Spent a lot of time with me. Explained everything clearly. Included me in the decision process. The team responded within 24 hours to my email. I felt 100% sure that Dr. Cabral's medication changes suggestions were in my best interest. The medication changes have literally changed my life for the better.

The doctor was late to see me, didn't let me describe all of my symptoms that I was feeling, very quickly jumped to conclusion on what he thought my diagnosis was, and then backtracked to see he won't know anything until he gets the results of my exam. I will not recommend this doctor to anyone because of his lack of professionalism.

I've been to other providers for the same issue. Dr. Cabral and the endocrine staff at Cleveland Clinic are by far the best of the best. I appreciate that there is a program for education about managing diabetes rather than just a quarterly visit and a prescription. Dr. Cabral spent time to listen and understand my issues before making his decision for treatment. I appreciate that.
