I am so pleased with Dr. Baranowski. He even called me a few months ago as soon as he saw a problem with my heart after my ablation. We talked about options and decided together to add an additional medication. He is kind, knowledgeable and most importantly to my family and me...he genuinely cares.

I recommend Cleveland Clinic every opportunity I get. Not that West Virginia doesn't have great doctors and hospitals but there are certain procedures that I like having a choice of hospitals that perform many more surgeries than my state. I also love the fact that a person can call on their own to make an appointment.

My experience could not have been any better with Dr. Baranowsk. He took time explaining what was going on with my heart which was extremely helpful and his bedside manner was exactly what I needed because I was a bit nervous. I need to have an ablation and I feel very confident in his ability to do the job and take good care of me. I can tell he cares about his patience including me. :)

Reviewed on Oct 28, 2019

Dr. Baranowski is extremely intelligent. However, I think he lacks empathy or basic social skills. When he walked in the room he never shook our hands and instead sat down and started talking at me. When I addressed my concerns and issues with other doctors he never responded about how to fix my main concerns. He was more worried about what other doctors did and explaining to me why they were wrong and why the procedures didn't work. He did however go into extreme depth about how my heart works and what's happening when I have an episode. Again, super smart, but he missed the entire point of why I was there. I have a very rare case so I am needing a doctor who cares about me as a person and is willing to go the extra mile to help me solve my issue. Because of my observations of my office visit, I do not believe I will return to the Cleveland Clinic for care.
