Dr. Sheldon was a very good doctor, she explained things, and called me as soon as she received my x-rays, and informed me the results of my x-rays, and that I had to get in touch with a orthopedic doctor. Plus that I need therapy for my back and hip.

The doctor was sincere and helpful

Absolutely no complaints. I've never been so impressed and satisfied with any doctor I have yet to see.

Reviewed on Aug 23, 2021

The only issue I had was that Dr. Sheldon could not see us, but could hear us, and that most likely was on my end.

She asked for my input at every stage of decision-making, and trusted my input. A lot of providers don't do that, seeming as if the patient couldn't possibly make a good clinical decision. My providers do, and Theresa was great about it. These virtual visits are amazing - so easy for when I don't need to be physically examined! I save 40 minutes travel and parking time, parking costs, etc.

I was pleased, so relieved that I was listened to, heard, that my concerns were validated and that further testing, follow up is being done to access what might be happening. She was professional and compassionate; she talked with me and worked with my circumstances. I felt hopeful, not defeated as I have with other doctors.

2 of the 4 medical professionals I saw were wonderful. I am excited that I was able to get in to see them. I am not sure if I was being too hopeful in seeking help with the two that were devastating appointments. I have been to several doctors for my medical conditions, I am aware that there can be differences yet to have prior diagnoses dismissed, be treated as I was was not appropriate. The other two fantastic and reminded me of what Cleveland is (the second was Dr.Mehta)

Reviewed on Jun 14, 2021

I never actually had the visit, I felt very uncomfortable with this provider as she pointed out how I wasn't prepared for the appt.

Reviewed on May 5, 2021

I was extremely pleased with provider! She answered all my questions very well and to my satisfaction. All in all a very good experience
