The physician was excellent.

Reviewed on Jun 25, 2020

Her demeanor seemed to suggest that I was wasting her time. She told me that my exam was "the best she'd seen in the past ten years," which seemed to suggest to me that my issue was not serious enough to treat. Although I tried to explain to her that my pain was both intermittent and, at times, also debilitating, she said that because I was not currently in severe pain she could not treat me herself. She recommended that I see a different doctor and begin PT, but did not specify which doctor I should see until I asked for further clarification.

Reviewed on Jun 22, 2020

I've see her before and had a better experience then. I came in for a different problem this time. I she was upset I am no longer talking Gabapentin. After my last surgery, I did not need anything for pain. She seemed to be upset that I ran out of Lyrica. The pharmacy ran out. They had to order it and it was over the weekend. I felt she didn't have the patience to find out why I was taking 2 pills a day instead of what was on the bottle, once a day. I tried to explain to her I spoke to my doctor about increasing it. she never asked about how much pain I was in, what I have issues doing and how this is affecting my day to day life. She was quick in telling me to go to a surgeon. I don't know if she was just having a bad day. I know we all have those once in a while.

I have been able to get in touch with Dr. Rosenquist through Mychart. She is very accessible for my questions and concerns. I also appreciate that she personally reads and responds to my messages.

Dr. Rosenquist cared about all my questions and concerns and made me feel heard compared to other doctors I have had in the past. I have already recommended her to others.

I was happy that the Cleveland Clinic was able to get me in to see the doctor without a long wait!

Reviewed on Jan 16, 2020

Doctor was very professional, stated her thoughts quite clearly, allowed me to ask questions. On 1st visit she knew I needed an MRI. 2nd visit I was able to follow her while she showed me my MRI and the area where my problem was, and what it was, and how she will treat it. I was quite impressed by this doctor.

Dr. Rosenquist is fantastic. She is brilliant, always seeking solutions, and deeply caring. I always feel that I am in the best hands receiving care from her.

I love Dr. Rosenquist, she is absolutely the best.

Very good experience. I was very concerned about the process of getting injections (nervous). Dr. Rosenquist provided information that I understood and made me feel a "little" better about the process. I appreciate her.

Reviewed on Oct 7, 2019

I have always had great doctors through Cleveland Clinic but they have always moved on within a year or two. I hope Dr Rosenquist sticks around as she is great.

Reviewed on Sep 19, 2019

Dr. Ellen Rosenquist is among the best providers I see on a regular basis. I see at least 4 physicians who cot donate my care following 20 operations over the last 5 years, so I hope that hope that validates the veracity of my statement-She is FANRASTIC-the exact type of provider that makes CCF special.

Reviewed on Aug 8, 2019

Dr. Ellen Rosenquist is the best pain management doctor I have ever had. I suffer chronic pain resulting from a MVA that left me with significant chronic pain. she is empathetic, caring, understanding, and kind. Perfect "bedside manner'. she's the best.
