Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

I saw the nurse practitioner which is fine but I didn't know this until the visit. I was expecting to see the doctor. I feel I should have been informed that I would be seeing the nurse instead of the doctor. I don't have a problem talking with the nurse but I wish I could have been made aware of this before I got there. I was glad I got in to the office so quickly.

Delia and Dr. Savage were easy to talk to. They both paid close attention to what I was saying. Most importantly they gave me feedback and reassurance. Dr. Savage took the time to pull up my scans and go over it with me. He then proceeded to inform me of the options, pros and cons. I needed to feel comfortable with the person who would be performing surgery on my back. There is no way that I would let anyone that I didn't feel comfortable with operate on me. Dr. Savage and his staff gave me the comfort that I needed.
