About Susan Jakubek, PA-C

Over the course of my career development, I earned my Master's of Physician Assistant Studies through University of Nebraska with a focus in Neurological Surgery.  Throughout my career, I have been afforded the opportunity  to manage departments, develop and manage schedules, and have been involved in strategical corporate planning. As the lead clinical core team member for implementation of an EMR system, one of my most obscure accomplishments had been form/template editing and document building. Within the constructs of the electronic health framework program, I customized the system to function in a more efficient manner.

I am a nationally certified physician assistant and hold a current Ohio license with an active DEA license. Recently, I obtained my MBA with a focus in Healthcare management.

Very informative and able to confirm some issues I had been dealing with that not just any specialist would! Extremely grateful for this facility and my "team doctor's"

Susan did an excellent job listening to me with an open mind, and she is clearly a brilliant PA and was cycling through possibilities, which is exactly what I need with this rare condition.

Excellent experience! Susan is awesome at what she does.

She was very caring and helpful and I feel like this visit things are going to start moving in the right direction unlike the last doctor I had saw at Metro

Reviewed on Feb 15, 2023

The only reason Susan isn't getting very good is they may not be applicable. I have no other treatment options left. My husband and I are fairly aware of this and the risks involved. She answered all of our questions. Susan is clearly competent in her knowledge and position, showing too much concern would allow a patient to feel afraid. She was clinical and caring without providing fear.

Reviewed on Jan 24, 2023

She was so sweet, understanding, empathic, and professional. I am so glad she handled my visit. I am considering moving all of my care and my son's care (doctors, specialists, etc.) to Cleveland Clinic because of her.b
