I can,t say enough when it comes to Dr.Kaminski and his staff. I managed a 7 provider family practice clinic for 45 years and each of his staffs now at beachwood and before that at Medina Hospital and Strongsville CC have always been pleasant and very efficient. they all have one thing in common.they like working with him. He is very professional and has always shown that he has read my chart thoroughly before coming into the exam room. he takes all the time necessary to hear your concerns and address them. From the time he first started taking care of me, I have had some very serious heart problems and I credit him with getting me through. The difference with how I feel now and how I felt the past 18 months is nothing short of a miracle. his method of both dictating his progress notes and typing some himself is very effective in helping me to understand what I am going through. Rereading his office summaries after I am at home clarifies his directives. I followed him from Medina to Strongsville to Beachwood and the extra driving time is a small price to pay to be so satisfied with the care I receive from him.
