Although I totally understand, the doctor's availability made scheduling an appointment quickly very difficult; I had to wait three months for an appointment and nearly five months for surgery. I did not have an experience to evaluate #5.

Best surgical team. *Dr. Bloomfield is the best.

Reviewed on Jan 28, 2020

I have a condition which could flare up during surgery , causing the Crystal Clinic to cancel my scheduled surgery because they didn't want to "run the risk" and weren't "equipped to handle it" if it did. Dr. Bloomfield basically said, "we got this." That's why you go to a Cleveland Clinic facility
