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.

This is my first time visiting Dr. Kaminski at this facility. I was seeing him previously at the Strongsville Facility before he was transferred. I have no complaints concerning any of the clinical staff at either of these locations, and Dr. Kaminski has always been well informed, thorough, clearly understandable and encouraging in discussing my health with me. The Clinical Support Staff at Strongsville have always been helpful and responsive to any questions or concerns I've had, and I would rate my first visit to the Beachwood Office equally thorough and professional.

Dr. Kaminski is an excellent cardiologist. He is thoughtful, respectful, and shows genuine concern in my well-being. More importantly, he accentuates the positives and addresses the negatives with incremental adjustments (meds, lifestyle, etc.) that I should take under consideration as a means for improving my overall health. His style is one of coaching vs. dictating/mandating. In other words, his approach is non-threatening and supportive. I couldn't be more pleased!!
