Reviewed on Apr 13, 2019

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.

Dr. Borst is awesome. I accidentally went to the wrong office so I was late and he still saw me. He didn't make me wait which was extremely cool considering I had my 3 and 4 year olds with me. I really think he's a good doc, he talks to you in a relatable manner.

Dr. Borst is always very thorough with my blood sugar readings, showing me where my numbers are too high or too low. He gives me just enough information and lets me have input to what changes are being made. He is very respectful, but upfront and honest. I appreciate that about him. He shows care and concern that he wants the best for me. He has taken the time to get to know me over the past 6 1/2 years so knows how I operate and what I need.

I had to book my appointments a year out. I feel The Clinics demand on the doctors time causes patients to go elsewhere.

Reviewed on Aug 14, 2018

it took way to long to get this appointment, I don't feel it was Dr Borst fault, it was totally the person making the appointment for me. Dr Borst seemed very surprised i had to wait 5 MONTHS to get this appointment. I even requested to take an earlier appointment if there was cancellations, I got a email 2 weeks before the appointment I already had. I can't believe in 5 months that was his first cancellation.

Reviewed on Aug 1, 2018

I am fairly picky about finding an endocrinologist and I feel like Dr. Borst will be a good fit. He has experience with insulin pump technology and the in-office a1c test was convenient. I'm thrilled to see him.

Dr. Borst is respectful, patient and explains things in ways that are easy for me to understand. I feel that he has my best interest and considers my preferences and concerns a priority.
