I felt Dr. Kosmorsky went above and beyond for me on the day of my last appointment. It was a fairly urgent issue, and we live 3 hours away, so he arranged for more tests and visits with another doctor to be done the same day.

Dr.Kosmorsky's group was absolutely on point with CDC Guidelines for COVID. I was taken into a procedure room as soon as I arrived. I did not have to wait very long before the doctor stepped in and he squired the medication for my procedure. In very short order the procedure was done and I checked and made my return appointment. This is indicative of all of my of all of my medical connections since my initial appointment.

poor Dr.Kimorsky displayed very little to no compassion during my visit to his Strongsville office. I felt my appointment was very rushed. Learning that you you have MS and losing nearly all of your vision is life changing and to have a Doctor care for you who lacks concern the way this Doctor did for me is disheartening and leaves you feeling defeated even when that may not be the case.

The entire process with this particular referral and Dr. was ineffective as was communications with different employees of the Cleveland Clinic pertaining to this appointment. Each employee provided conflicting information and when the Dr did finally appear, he was extremely curt and rude speaking to me as if I am ignorant and he was not informative nor helpful as he made it clear he DOES NOT see patients with my presenting referral. A complete waste of my time and why wasn't this figured out ahead of time based on my referral to a neuro opthamologist from my neurologist? Not one employee caught the error prior to my showing up at 7:05 which a nurse wrote that I checked in at 7:42 for my 7:30. That too was an error on behalf of the staff. I'm extremely frustrated with every facet of this particular Dr and staff at the Strongsville location.

the doctor was rude and wouldn't listen to what was wrong with me or take any time with me. I will not be going back to another Cleveland Clinic eye doctor.

Reviewed on Nov 25, 2019

We were disappointed in our appointment with Dr Kosmorski. His delivery of treatment information, coupled with his demeanor yand lack of regard for the patient's concerns about working with impaired vision seemed to reveal a lack of empathy for the patient. In discussing the treatment outcomes and prognosis of six nerve palsy, Dr Kosmorski was notably negative and conveyed that the patient should not expect a full recovery. His harsh delivery caused the patient's girlfriend to begin to cry during the visit. Both the patient and his girlfriend felt that Dr. Kosmorhski was simply comparing the patient to others ("other people are able to work fine with one eye") and wasn't relating to the patient as a full person from a place of empathy.
