Dr. Cory deeply cares about her patients and it shows. She takes the time to listen and makes sure that she's answered all of my questions.

It took over 30 minutes for me to get seen by Dr. Weitzel for an early morning appointment. Moreover, it was very disappointing to not even get a recognition by the doctor that she was running behind, let alone an apology for not being on time. I stage these visits early so that I can get to work at a reasonable hour, not to sit around in the waiting room.

Reviewed on Apr 12, 2018

Once I am in the exam room, the Doctor is always right there. The wait time that can vary is between the initial eye exam with the technician and the Doctor exam.

Reviewed on Dec 5, 2017

Dr. Weitzel is always very detailed in the information that she gives to me about my treatment. She and other doctors like her that truly care for their patients are the reason we choose the Cleveland Clinic for our Care Providers.
