I felt extremely lucky and privileged to be under Dr Culver's care. He is thorough in explaining all aspects of my care and test results, even incidences of abnormalities that were not part of the original diagnosis. His conversation with me was respectful and thorough. I felt I had a clear understanding of my situation after talking with him. He gave me adequate time for all my questions and consultation. I did not feel rushed. I felt I was in the care of the best doctor I could possibly have.

I learned much about my condition, and I believe the treatment and advice I received will prove most effective. the Doctor asked many insightful questions and listened carefully to the answers my wife and I provided. the Doctor radiated competence, empathy and confidence.

Dr. Culver is truly awesome. He flexes his care style to meet my interpersonal style and needs, takes the time necessary to actually listen, discusses his thoughts, discusses the treatment options with me, and is very accessible throughout the treatment cycle. Considering how busy he is, this is truly great. He never seems rushed, and does whatever it takes to help his patients.

Dr Culver is exceptional.

Reviewed on Oct 3, 2016

I came to Cleveland Clinic from out of state and my husband and I were extremely impressed with how well the appointment process flowed from x-ray through blood work. Every person we encountered was professional, friendly, attentive and helpful. I have been treated at home for my disease for several months and learned so much more in just a short period of time with Dr. Culver. He was compassionate and caring listener and was truly interested in getting the best outcome for me and calming any anxieties I have regarded to my illness. Was well worth our trip and I would highly recommend to anyone else who needs specialty care.
