Dr. King is very slow at responding to My Chart messages.

Reviewed on Apr 22, 2019

Dr. King provided very little information about the procedure and recovery time and precautions to take (i.e., like I would feel significantly worse before feeling better). He had told me on my chart that I would have to be on crutches for 2 weeks so I had to cancel a previous appointment due to a family vacation conflict. The day of the actual procedure he was very flippant about how long I need to be on crutches - he said maybe a week. There doesn't seem to be much of a protocol for this procedure and it didn't make me feel very confident that the procedure would even work. Also in the my chart post-procedure summary it said that I was provided with an information packet about the procedure (I was not) and that I shouldn't take NSAIDS for 2 weeks (Dr. King told me 5 days). I am very unsatisfied with the overall experience.

Dr. King was awesome. First time meeting him.

I can't thank Dr. King enough for his determination to help me. His commitment to diagnose and correct my condition has me hopeful about my outcome. After years of suffering with the same enigmatic issue, hope has been in short supply.

Reviewed on Jan 3, 2019

Dr. King was one of the best doctors I had been treated by at the Cleveland Clinic. It was rare to have someone who actually listened to me and looked at me rather than at his computer. He had looked at my records before coming in and also took the time to look through it again to find out the past treatments I have had for my problem. He also went out of his way to listen about another problem that I was having (not the one for which I had gone there, but somewhat related) and explained what I could do about it. This was unexpected as I am used to getting hurried, Impersonal, and uncaring treatment from my other doctors who just order tests or refer me to another doctor for further treatments.

Dr. King is knowledgeable, compassionate and made a concerted effort to help me even when I mentioned my medical issue not related to my visit with him. In my opinion, he went out of his way to refer me to another physician for a consult out of his realm of practice by messaging the physician directly regarding needing the consult as soon as possible along with referring me to the spine clinic at the main campus. I am very grateful for his expertise and his personal concern for my well-being by getting me to the correct physician for further consult and advice for the best treatment for me.
