Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

There were quite a few people waiting for the same test that I had scheduled. The wait time was quite long. I understand that sometime it can't be avoided. Was well satisfied with the visit and the service that I received.Staff were very professional and courteous to myself and my wife while we were there. Dr. Walid Saliba and his nurse did an amazing job explaining my situation and the treatment options. Thanks to all, excellent experience.

The nurse did an excellent job going over my records and asking the right questions. When she finished it was a short wait for Dr. Saliba to see me. He was very professional and did a good job explaining my condition and the options available.

the reason for the appt being late was that he was seeing other patients, and when it was my turn he spent time with me. Dr Saliba does things right. no complaints.

Dr. Saliba helped me accept a new perspective about my condition. He also dispelled some of the misunderstandings about false-positive test results I had received at a different hospital. And this greatly eased my mind.

This was my first time meeting Dr Saliba following my surgical procedure in that he was substituting for Dr M. Kanj who was the operating surgeon. Dr. Saliba had complete access to my file information and familiarized himself with my situation as we met. I felt that we ultimately covered questions and a satisfactory review of results. I found Dr Saliba very personable and capable - I was just a little taken back by the introduction of another physician at what I hope is the conclusion of my whole ablation experience.
