Dr. Peter Aziz was absolutely fabulous! From the moment we met him and his wonderful staff, we were at ease and felt so comfortable with the procedure to take place. Benjamin Hammond went beyond the call of duty to personally update me about appointment times and when Wilson was taken back to start the procedure. The Fellow, Celen was so sweet and engaging. This team was remarkable in every aspect and made a medical procedure much more relaxing and reassuring to Wilson and us ( his parents). The Cleveland Clinic certainly lives up to its outstanding reputation. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the procedure and our experience at the Cleveland Clinic.
