Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Dr Hrelec was excellent and though.

Dr HRELEC is a wonderful professional. Not only did she explain everything in medical terms but also in layman terms. I would not change her for another MD in her field of specialize medical expertise. Thank you Dr Hrelec.

Reviewed on Sep 7, 2018

My Dr. was incredible! She was so patient, thorough, took time to explain, and very kind. She suggested that if I had any trouble scheduling a follow up appointment to contact her. My only complaint is having to wait almost one month before my next appointment, so I contacted the office manager and she was able to get me in sooner.

Reviewed on Aug 24, 2018

Dr Hrelec apologized for wait time. she said they were backed up with providing patient care. I understand and was not inconvenienced.

I am very pleased with my medical care at this Coral Springs Cleveland Clinic Facility with Dr. Hrelec. The facility is clean, pretty, bright and the support staff are mostly very professional.

Reviewed on Aug 13, 2018

Dr. Hrelec is an exceptionally good doctor! I feel lucky to have her as my physician.

Reviewed on Aug 13, 2018

wait time to see the doctor was in excess of 45minutes. I sat in the exam room for 45 min. without anyone telling me what was going on!

Reviewed on Aug 10, 2018

Dr. Hrelec is wonderful. Her presence is very reassuring and very empathetic towards me and mt wife. She is kind and wonderful she is the type of Doctor that I would say to Cleveland Clinic do your best to keep her!!!!

Reviewed on Aug 10, 2018

The doctor was friendly after a few minutes of warming up. However, initially, her approach was very off-putting. I was actually on my way out to leave the clinic because I waited for so long, but the doctor and (I believe a trainee) were standing outside of the door as I was leaving. The doctor didn't apologize for the wait and didn't try to encourage me to stay. She responded as if I was just another patient and responded that it was fine if I wanted to reschedule. I would've appreciated a different response considering I was there with a newborn and made arrangements for my other two children to be watched while I was at the appointment.

Reviewed on Aug 10, 2018

I arrived approximately 10 minutes before more appointment and waited nearly 2 hours before being seen. I had to ask the receptionist about the wait time after I had not been called back 45 mins - 1 hour later. I was called back after waiting nearly an hour and a half and then waited to be seen by the doctor for an additional approximately 30 minutes.

Reviewed on Aug 1, 2018

Dr. Hrelec was the perfect doctor for me. Great interaction and explanations. I never felt rushed and she really helped me relax after having a less comfortable experience with my last care provider.

Reviewed on Jul 20, 2018

Dr. Hrelic was fabulous! She was completely knowledgeable about her field of study, took plenty of time with me, consulted my medical records and even updated a recent hospital stay I had in 12/18. The receptionist was courteous and proficient. The young man who checked me out and made a second appointment for me was so very helpful and patient.

Reviewed on Jul 19, 2018

Was the first time seeing the Dr. she listen to my concern very well.Gave me new medication to see if it helps me.

Reviewed on Jul 9, 2018

I only wished the Doctor would have read my medical file so that she would have been preared as to why I was there for. My regular Doctor is on a medical leave. I hope he is well and that he comes back to work healthy. my best wishes to Dr. Alemar
