I had a radiology appt. at 11am and would have had to wait to see the doctor for my 4 o'clock appointment and the receptionist asked Dr Pimentel if he could work me in and before my appointment time and he did which was wonderful since we had come in from Jupiter and were dreading the drive back in 5pm traffic!

This was my first time to Cleveland Clinic. I am 60 years old so I have been to many medical facilities. I have never been so impressed as I was with Cleveland and Dr. Pimentel.
