I love Dr Kosmorsky! He listened to my concerns and agreed to the treatment I wanted to try. Very open to listen to my concerns

Reviewed on Sep 28, 2021

The Doctor treated me with the respect and compassion that he always has. I would highly recommend him to anyone with my rare eye disease.

Reviewed on Sep 23, 2021

Good experience. Disappointing for the information given. Dr confirmed the previous diagnoses and confirmed that there is no treatment to correct my vision.

Reviewed on Sep 23, 2021

Dr tested my eyes and explained why there was no treatment for my problem.

Dr. Kosmorsky came highly recommended,,his bedside manor..was flippant at best..suggested he had had same issue since he was 17 years old...who ever heard of having an over active brain..???,,won't visit him again

Reviewed on Sep 16, 2021

The doctor knows his stuff and I think he nailed the diagnosis of a rare condition but his bedside manor was the worst I've experienced in CCF system. As soon as he figured out the problem he only addressed me and acted as if my mother wasn't in the room. She has cognitive issues but they aren't to the point that she can't communicate or follow a conversation. When I asked if there were any tests we could schedule to confirm diagnosis he bluntly said yes but it can only be done via dissection after death. That was horrible thing to say in front of mom. A person with an ounce of empathy would have known the intent of my question was for the near term. It's kind of moot after death! Again horrible experience.

Reviewed on Sep 3, 2021

Would have liked the Dr to check my prescription.

Reviewed on Sep 2, 2021

This is an appointment I waited months for. I traveled 4 hours to come to the clinic, and I scheduled work around this appointment. I had seen Dr. Shook and he referred me to Dr. Kosmorsky as a neuro-ophthalmologist as part of my workup. Dealing with an unknown medical condition is stressful, but I had been looking forward to getting some answers. Instead, Dr. Kosmorsky spent less than 5 minutes with me. I did not have an opportunity to discuss my symptoms with him. He heard me say I had blurry/double vision, ordered a test from a tech, then dismissed me out of hand. He did not ask about other symptoms, he was unaware that I had had a brain MRI which led to me coming to the clinic. When I brought up other symptoms and asked if those were consistent with his diagnosis, he said no, those are caused by something else. I asked If there could be another cause that would account for more of my symptoms. He said yes, but Dr. Shook will do that work up. The indifference he showed to me as a patient and the dismissive nature he treated me was not what I expect out of the Cleveland Clinic. It was abundantly clear to me that he did not read anything in my chart before walking in the room. It was a waste of time.

Reviewed on Sep 2, 2021

Dr Kosmorsky is an excellent doctor. He has been my doctor for at least thirty years. I was legally blind from two cataracts and now my vision is perfect. I tell everybody to go and see him if they have vision problems. I have done this through the years.

Reviewed on Sep 2, 2021

Not sure what you mean by "our practice." If you mean Dr. Kosmorsky, I do not recommend him. I accepted the appointment with him only because I had no way to get to the Main campus. I feel the entire visit with Dr Kosmorsky was a total waste of time.

Reviewed on Aug 24, 2021

Dr. Kosmorsky is always in a very good mood and conveys it along to you. He is courteous, friendly, professional and very attentive to you as a person and not a number as happens when seeing some professional personnel.

Doctor did not know why I was there. Nor did he ask me any questions about my vision.

Frustrated that Dr was unable to let me know what was going on. More tests. Hope with results of blood work, a DX can be reached.

Reviewed on Aug 17, 2021

Dr. Kosmorsky was quick and efficient in ordering the correct tests etc...However, he never asked my history to understand my condition. When I started describing some of my symptoms, he cut me off and made it clear the appointment was over.

Reviewed on Aug 17, 2021

I was sent by my provider to have my eyes examined for increased headaches. The assistant spent more time with me then the doctor. He blew in I told him the reason & he commented how providers always send him with these complaints. He checked my eye pressure, said it was fine & then said go head and get out there, I was wasting his time. I waited 3 months for a 5 minute appointment with him. I have see him in the past & thought he had a terrible bedside manor it hasn't got any better.

Reviewed on Aug 13, 2021

I did not care for the doctor, didnt seem to care about my vision problem with light and motion sensitivity. Did a basic routine check and injected my c2 level stated if it didn't work there was nothing else he could do. Would never recommend anyone else to him.

Doctor as I stated before didn't seem like he cared to get to the problem. Gave me a shot and said it that doesn't work can't do nothing else for me

Dr. Kaczmarski Really listen to me and treated me with the upmost respect I told him vision was changing in my right eye after cataract surgery he looked at it and said you have scars tissue he gave me 15 shots to the eye with the laser within one day I was seeing perfect with the radio again the left eye has been very good thank you we need more people like him him

Reviewed on Aug 10, 2021

Dr. Kosmorsky is not very personable which would be fine except he way in which he delivered my "diagnosis". He came in said well, I don't know what's wrong. Shrugged and then said maybe this, but even if it was there's nothing we can do. Nearly refused to order any other tests and said my other doctors could order one if they wanted. Only by sharing some family medical history did he agree to more tests and said fine, we can go fishing. Kind of a horrible way to be treated when you've been having unexplained vision problems for over a year with no correlation to your eye health,

The doctor was entirely to short and blunt with the exam. He looked in my eyes the said a MRI is needed, you probably have a brain tumor, benign, or an aneurysm. No further appointment necessary, I will call you. It is now Wed. at 4:45pm and he has not called yet, MRI was done at 2:30 on Monday. Dr K was just not very kind in saying the possibilities of a problem.
