I needed 2 trips to the lab to get the blood test. The lab wouldn't honor Dr. Berglund's order for the test until he wrote a new script despite the fact that the original script said the "expected" date of the test was July 19th. That seems to me like a nonsensical requirement when the original order was very clear.

Dr. Berglund was as patient, thorough, knowledgable, comprehensive, caring, and reassuring as any doctor I've ever had. He is excellent, just outstanding; a true credit to the Cleveland Clinic's urology department.
