Reviewed on Jul 28, 2021

Dr. Haidet provided exceptional care for my rather complex wrist fracture. This was the first time I met him, but I felt immediately comfortable and valued as an individual. He was busy that day, and I must say, as another healthcare provider, I admired how compassionate and truly attentive he was for my exam. I felt "heard" by a busy provider who didn't rush through the visit. I work in surgery, and therefore it was essential that I try to regain as much function as was possible. Before surgery, I couldn't even move the tip of my thumb. Now, I have my baseline full range of motion, as well as my full strength restored, and am back to work without restrictions. The outcome of my surgery couldn't have been any better! In addition to that, as well as all of the rest of his duties, he went above and beyond when he gave me an updated letter for work just a few hours after I sent the message to him that I needed It. I am very happy with the care I received, and am grateful to Dr.Haidet for essentially giving back to me my fully functional right arm.The Cleveland Clinic should feel lucky to have such a person working within their institution.

I had an extremely bad wrist fracture a few years ago, Dr Haidet did a phenomenal job putting my wrist back together so I cannot express how grateful I am for him. He and Yirka both apologized to me for my long wait before I was seen, not a common practice for most physicians, unfortunately...would definitely recommend them both for their expertise.
