Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

*Dr. Buletko saved my life. Coordinated the surgery for the next day. When he put all the unusualness of my case together, he made it happen right away. I will be forever grateful.

Dr. Bain seems very confident without being cocky. He seems vet knowledgeable but was willing to act on my input.

We liked that Dr. Bain was reasonably on-time, but importantly when he walked in the exam room was fully briefed and prepared. That is, he took the time to review her recent MRI and chart before entering the exam room. Doing so gives confidence to the patient that you're not just a number during the day. He was also very polite and personable.

I was terrified to hear the words aneurysms and surgery, however Dr Bain and Lauren were able to present the need for surgical repair as well as what to expect in the most comforting manner. They were not pushy, however presented the facts and laid out a plan that worked best for me and the medical concerns.

I was pleased with my visit with Dr. Bain. I am a little disappointed to have to wait so long for another appointment. But, I realize it is because I have a pacemaker and have to get everyone together to do this procedure of an MRI/MRA. Everyone has been very helpful to make this happen as soon as possible. My appointment will not be with Dr. Bain he is helping me to get to the right department as soon as possible.

Time was taken to show & explain exactly where my Aneurysm was located and the risks/benefits of surgery vs leaving it alone. I've known about the Aneurysm for almost 2 years now and Dr. Bain was the first one to show me on my scans the exact location. Very impressed

Dr Bain and his nurse, Lauren, were fantastic. they both spent a lot of time educating us and explaining this. When something is found that isn't right in your brain it is scary. They made me understand it better and not feel so worried.
