Dr. Borst is one of the best doctors I've ever had. I have gestational diabetes and he made me feel so much better about managing it. He responded to all my emails promptly, even over the weekend.

I'm not sure that I've ever had a doctor I like better than Dr. Borst. He is always personable, friendly, and has a new tidbit of information that puts my situation into perspective. One of the aspects I like most about him is that he respects the knowledge I've gained outside of his office and allows me to be as independent in my diabetes management as I want to be, and that he is never condescending. He's great at celebrating victories and pointing out just one thing to work on.

in my years of working with the Cleveland Clinic and being in private practice myself and knowing how to care for and treat patients Dr. Borst did a very poor job representing the Cleveland Clinic. . I was the last appointment for the day and felt all the Dr. was concerned about was getting too a baseball game that had already started. I would NEVER give Dr. Borst the opportunity to sit with me again as a patient.
