It was a good experience, I saw Dr. Cabral for the first time and it was a positive experience.

Reviewed on Apr 4, 2019

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.

Reviewed on Mar 28, 2019

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.

Reviewed on Feb 13, 2019

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.

Reviewed on Feb 4, 2019

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.

Reviewed on Jan 30, 2019

Dr. Cabral is the best in the business. He takes time to explain and discuss my treatment and plan for the future

Reviewed on Jan 30, 2019

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.
