We absolutely love our interactions with Dr. Cartaya and staff. Cleveland Clinic makes dealing with our son's diabetes so much easier. We have access to hospitals and Dr's so much closer to home (Pittsburgh) but we feel that Dr. Cartaya is worth every minute of the drive to Cleveland. We appreciate her immensely.

Dr. Julia Cartaya is the 5th Dr my son has had in 10 years. Mostly due to practice changes from providers, however we travel 100 miles one way to see her specifically. She's wonderful and very attentive. I couldn't ask for a better provider for my son!

Reviewed on Nov 5, 2020

Dr. Cartaya was just wonderful. She was so informative and took her time to explain everything; not only to me but in way to make my daughter understand and feel comfortable as well. She went above and beyond and called me directly herself to explain some further test results. Even after she had referred us to see another specialist in the future and not her. Cannot say enough good about this provider.
