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

Dr Aronica took the time to talk to me, discuss my history and explore treatments. He listened to me and considered my needs regarding my medical situation

This was an amazingly wonderful experience... from the suggestion that Dr. Aronica was now in Twinsburg!!!!! The nurse who took the time to do this for me and communicated with me was a wonderful thing! She put me so much more at ease because I had felt like I was lost, didn't know which direction to go as the Allergist I'd seen just 2 years before was no longer there or available to me at this time. 5+ stars

Reviewed on Feb 23, 2021

I chose Dr. Aronica based also on his online reviews... he sounded like just what I needed; a good listener and kind and knowledgeable. He made me so comfortable and after reviewing my chart was able to answer most of my questions before I asked them. He also did not abruptly stop our meeting at 30 minutes. I was aware of the time but had a couple of questions I really needed answered; he sensed that and made me feel understood. I really liked that he said I could also reach him through My Chart Messages; he also asked me to let him know how things go or if anything else comes up. I very much like working with Dr. Aronica. He put me at ease and explained very well.!!! 5+ stars again

Reviewed on Feb 23, 2021

new to me but very much appreciated was the ability to upload photos for the visit!!! Ours was a visit to converse about my history and reactions. So, all of this made it possible for me to communicate pretty much all that was needed for Dr. Aronica to have the complete picture of my previous visit to an allergist.

Reviewed on Feb 10, 2021

This provider seems knowledgeable. However, he seems to have disregarded many of my concerns during my video visit and also when I messaged him with a follow up concern. I've told him the meds I have not tolerated in the past but he has insisted putting me on these medications. Sure enough, I started bleeding from my ears and nose. I also have severe facial pain sensitivity and when I told him I had to reduce the dose or change medication, I was essentially told that it's something I would have to deal with. I find this to be unacceptable. He also said that hydroxyzine and zyrtec were similar and I should try zyrtec even though I already tried zyrtec and had the same issues with drying and bleeding. This doctor does not seem to be interested in any of my experiences or what I'm saying. He is not considering the complexity of my case, the severity of my reactions, or even my self reported symptoms. Furthermore, I think continued education would be warranted. From the medical journals I have reviewed, MCAS can be diagnosed as an unspecified mast cell disorder if the patient has typical symptoms, and has reacted well to at least 2 antihistamines. Testing is ideal, but not always reliable, given the small time frame in which a sample must be taken. I don't appreciate when doctors fail to listen to their patients and disregard patient experiences. He was not outright disrespectful, but if you can't listen to your patients you should work in a different line of work.

This was not a great experience. The provider disregarded my concerns and clearly did not listen to me. please see previous comments.

Reviewed on Jan 27, 2021

I really love the way he explains all my options. He makes sure I'm comfortable with what ever decision we're going to make to help me feel better. He is one of the best doctors I've ever had.

Fantastic experience. He was the only doctor who explained how to use a nose spray correctly. It made a HUGE difference in the efficacy of the spray!

Reviewed on Dec 16, 2020

Dr. Aronica is a caring and very informative physician. He takes the time to explain my medical condition and treatment plan. I feel very confident in his medical care and would fully recommend him to anyone needing an immunologist.

Reviewed on Sep 9, 2020

Dr. Aronica very much helped me in this situation - he was able to support other dr's medical initiatives which were dependent on the timeliness and accuracy of his own allergy assessment.
