Everyone and everything except the actual Dr was a top notch experience. I found Dr Connors rude and downright dismissive. I threw away the names of the Drs she tried to pawn me off on as I would never feel comfortable even taking her advice at this point, let alone allow her to perform surgery on me.

This was my first time with this doctor and she made me feel very comfortable and not nervous at all. I enjoyed her and would request her again for my next checkup.

Arrived 30 minutes early as instructed. waited almost 60 to be taken back to exam room. I asked at front desk twice about when I would be seen. Did not receive accurate info. saw doc 15 minutes or less. Lengthy delays required me to pay $6 parking charge. Not good directions one in garage. Incorrect Rx given to pharmacy who could not fill, so called dr office. No response. I had to call dr office several days later and had hassle. Had always heard good things about Cleveland Clinic, so very disappointed with my experience. Not worth time or effort. Will not be back.

The responses from your on-line portal and on the phone were awesome. The traffic on Okeechobee can be a nightmare when getting to the office on time but other than that, I am a huge fan of how my daughter and I are cared for by Dr. Connor and will now be switching my entire family's primary care provide to The Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Connor is an exceptional physician. Her care keeps me in good health! Consequently, I usually only need to see her 1 or twice a year.

I liked that the waiting time to see the doctor was short. However, I would've liked a little more time to discuss my medical concerns with the doctor.

My most recent visit with Dr. Connor to specifically discuss hormone therapy was excellent and to the point. It was very helpful. My first visit left me with a few questions, and things changed for me in the direction of the need for hormone therapy, so I had the follow up appointment. I am pleased with Dr. Connor.
