I did that an waited for one hour then saw Dr. Spatola who could not have been nicer or more professional. But, he explained that I needed to see a Doctor who specialized in the Ears. Dr. Spatola took the time to give me a computer listing of Ear Doctor's that he would recommend. I chose one and made an appointment the next day.

Dr Spatola is an excellent caregiver. He is compassionate and focused on you when you visit, his listening skills are great and he takes time to have open and what I consider objective discussions with you about your health and well-being. I especially like chatting with him on a number of topics and just catching up . He makes you feel relaxed and truly cared for. His emotional intelligence is far advanced in comparison to a lot of doctors I have visited with over the years. A true asset to Cleveland Clinic. In truth if he leaves I may not visit Cleveland Clinic anymore as the service and care in the past has been somewhat spotty.

My goal was to find a primary physician that was respectfully of my time. Wait time was a minimum of 2 hours and all he did was sit behind his laptop and rarely made eye contact. I called Cleveland Clinic in Wellington to see if they could serve as my primary. The answer was an enthusiastic yes. The very next day I had an appointment for 3:20 pm. By 4 pm I'm on the way home with a new primary Dr with an actual personality.

Reviewed on Jun 18, 2019

Care provider somewhat dismissed my secondary concern because he only had 20 min to discuss whatever i needed to discuss, so I needed to decide which of my concerns was more important than the other. Thought this was not professional
