This is my first appointment with a Cleveland Clinic cardiologist after several years with Summa. I had to change because of going on the ACA plan. I was impressed that Dr. Iyer knew my previous doctor and was willing to allow me to continue with the short term plan I have for my atrial fibrillation. I felt listened to and cared for.
