Excellent Provider

THIS care provider is a poster child for Cleveland Clinic excellence in health care. Kind and caring and a great gatekeeper for the Dept of Orthopedics. Great PA-C!

I did not feel heard at my appointment. I felt he quickly diagnosed his opinion without a thorough conversation or history of my issue. I felt he was rushed and in a hurry as opposed to taking time with me to hear me and get a good grasp on my issue. He did not appear confident in his diagnosis. He also downplayed my issue in my opinion and acted like it was just something I needed to live with as opposed to looking for solutions or offering me solutions. I was upset that I drove 2 hours to see a PA and not a Dr and I feel Cleveland Clinic should tell people when they schedule that they are being scheduled with a PA and not a Dr. I am aware of the difference in training and education and I drove 2 hours to see a very qualified Dr, not a PA. I was very frustrated when I walked in and realized this.

I have a worker's comp injury, so finding a doctor/urgent care that would deal with that paperwork was difficult initially, but the quality of care I am now receiving is excellent.
