Dr. Hegde was very organized, precise, and thorough. She was also cordial and considerate.

Reviewed on Jan 21, 2021

The My Chart app should have the Cleveland Clinic logo to make it more recognizable. It also had a ton of old information that I tried to delete and update, but that didn't "take," so Dr. Hegde couldn't see which meds I was currently taking and which I had tried to delete. Very confusing. For an in-person visit, I would have had a printout of my current meds to share with the dr. Being able to scan and upload that would have been easier.

Obviously the doctor could not feel my joints and bend them around like she typically does, but that is the only down-side I see to telemedicine in this case.

The video experience for appointments with doctors is good to some degree especially in a time of Covid. But there are times when the doctor needs to look at your joints and flareups in person it's hard with the camera photo
