Love Dr Sample he the nurse are very kind

Dr Sample was courteous but should have explained my treatment options better I would have taken a cortisone shot in the hip as a treatment had he offered and explained it to me rather than the topical treatment he proposed

Sems like service is getting tougher. Particularly with top doctors. Of course, it is the old supply and demand deal... Semple was better than most to get into and was good. He also has a great bedside manner. Straight and direct. Much appreciated. Will seek him out for appointments in the future.

Overall, I think that the Cleveland Clinic must employ more Black American doctors with the required experience. I have been feeling slighted in my care at the Cleveland Clinic by your doctors and nurses on my care team. Mr. Clarence Semple, PA is exceptional because he observed my symptoms & listened to me.

Dr was the best making me very comfortable

Course of treatment obvious from condition once explained so no issue of "including' me in care decisions. The question about "caring for me as a person" is so stupid it makes me want to puke. Dr. Semple is a nice guy and knows what he's doing - that's all I need.

Dr. Semple was very very knowledgeable and had great concerns for my medical problem. I'm from Pittsburgh and will travel back to Cleveland clinic for this type of care.

I had been seeing two doctors through UH over at Ahuja. I really liked both doctors. I needed to change to the Cleveland Clinic because of insurance. Doctor Semple was very helpful in this transition. We spoke about my current conditions, but more importantly, went into more detail about future treatment plans and why. Completely confident in the direction we are heading.
