Dr. Wallace is amazing! She is one of the most thorough physicians I have seen at Cleveland Clinic. I noticed when I made my appointment that It was scheduled for 30 min. A uro-gyn intake appointment could easily take an hour. As a retired OB-GYN, I can't imagine 30 min being enough in this specialty. However Dr. Wallace did NOT rush. She listened, asked for clarification, and planned follow-up for my mixed symptoms. She gave me thorough explanations of the symptoms & her plan for going forward. I really appreciate her care.
