Having worked in large hospitals and seeing the changing methods in which medical services are delivered, I believe Cleveland Clinic Weston did an outstanding job. Dr. Sheffield listened, answered our questions and did not seem in a particular hurry. He outlined the procedure and post-surgical care. By the time our exam / meeting was over, I felt very comfortable knowing he was going to do open heart surgery on me!

Reviewed on Jun 6, 2019

We waited for 2 hours to see our doctor. We do understand that emergencies come up that need to be dealt with but it was a long time. On the plus side, the doctor stayed with us for as long as we had questions and explained in great detail what was going on. He took the time needed and didn't try to rush us out the door. As a result, we were totally confident in him operating on me. I don't know where the trade off is on how to correct the time matter. We were very pleased overall with everything.
