I currently live in Arizona but I am from Ohio and lived most of my life in Ohio. My entire family and I utilized the Cleveland Clinic on various occasions and have always received the best care humanly possible. When I spent a year of worry and despair in Arizona with a diagnosis and treatment that lead to a "brick wall", I reached out to the Clinic. From that moment until today, I can't give enough praise in words but my appreciation goes to every person I encountered. The care and treatment provided by Dr. Allemang, Dr. Cline, Dr. Sanaka, and the entire gastroparesis team is top of the line. I and my family are forced her grateful.

Dr. Allemang is one of the best doctors I've ever met (and I've met a LOT.) He is kind, compassionate and treats you like a person, not just a number. He truly cares and that is very evident in his bedside manner and the way he interacts with me. I will never be able to thank him enough! I literally moved to California but flew back to Cleveland to receive care from him because I trust him so much more.
