Even though I live in PA I would always recommend Cleveland Clinic as I always get very professional, efficient treatment that is above and beyond any treatment in Erie PA. The doctors and staff create an environment of confidence that is hard to find these days. Why other health care systems don't follow CC business model is beyond. Thanks for the service
