Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

I was alone for almost one hour before Dr. Stephenson came into the room.

No one seemed to know the proper days, times or locations of the schedule that Dr. Stephenson wanted or needed. I spent MORE time getting the appointments needed CORRECTLY than my visit with the Dr. As it was, all the appointments were incorrect and mismanaged.
