Never experienced better care from a doctor. Dr H called me twice to give updates on test results. She worked hard to get tests scheduled within my time in Cleveland. She was transparent in what she wrote in report, explaining any things that weren't immediately clear. She reassured me that coming to the Clinic was a good decision. And I am convinced that it was, after seeing her. She spent a great deal of time with me and was completely engaged during that time.
