Reviewed on Jun 17, 2020

The parties that answer the calls in the gastric dept are unhelpful, discourteous and have no social skills. Very disappointing! Not what I expected from Cleveland Clinic? When I have called to get their help or to leave a msg or req speak to doctor they just brush you off the phone and really do not take your concern or request to leave a msg serious. They simply say if you are in pain got to the ER, when that is unreasonable.

Reviewed on Jun 17, 2020

I wish there was a better way of communicating with doctor. The central department that responds to doctor calls keep you from actually being able to speak to the doctor.

Reviewed on Jun 17, 2020

I really expected to be treated and attended to much more professionally by dept staff. The appointment was made easy, the check in was too, and the doctor. A nurse took me to a desk where they were supposed to help me make appts for mri, and blood she told me to sit there that someone would be there soon,but no one ever came. After awhile waiting I walked around and saw another nurse, I asked her if anyone was at the desk and she said" I guess they are gone, you have to go to the front desk" This was my 1st time there, I said I am not sure where the front desk is she pointed, but I was still uncertain, she finally got up to show me, but you can see she was not happy about it!
