the doctor was very professional it was a good experience
Reviewed on Aug 24, 2020
My experience was excellent. WEnt to a doctor for months and never learned as much as I did with Phil. He explained totally. Xrays were better than I'd had before. Other dr. took xrays twice and I never even saw them. Have spent months with other dr. with no good results. Will definitely go with Dr Brooks for knee surgery.

I was very happy with Dr. Golnick. he was very personable and informative with all my questions. He really made me feel at ease about the whole operation process. He made me feel like he was talking to a friend not just another number coming through the door.

Phil was great. He was very thorough with talking me through my issue, my options, what BHR is, talking about procedure and Dr. Brooks. He answered all my question, most of which before I had to ask them. He showed he really cares about his patient and getting them the proper help.

I am a physician, so I came in with very specific questions about the procedure, the alternatives, the device that Dr. Brooks uses, and the post surgical protocol. Phil was extremely knowledgeable and thorough in his answers to my questions. he explained why Dr. Brooks would use a particular approach in my particular height and muscle structure, and he discussed at length what my rehab which involved so that I can plan accordingly. he is knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and very understanding.

Was very satisfied with Dr. Golnick and the staff I encountered at the facility
Reviewed on Jan 2, 2020
Mr. Golnick offered options that my other two opinions did not offer. I felt at ease and more apt to having surgery. He explained the surgery at great lengths, giving me the pros and cons. His opinion was backed up by Dr. Brooks and I will be seeing him soon to discuss it with him soon. I feel confident that this is my best option.

I've had two hips resurfaced by Dr Peter Brooks, June 2011 and December 2018 and the care, respect and service I received by Dr Brooks, Dr Golnick, their lead nurses, all the staff at Cleveland Clinic has been outstanding. The courtesy from the staff at Desk 100, x-ray, surgical and recovery is the best anywhere I've had. The Dec 18' surgery was my ninth orthopedic procedure I've had dating back to the mid 70's and I've always come out surgery and off of the anesthetic very ill and sick feeling, the surgical staff saw that I received what I needed to prevent that. Simply put when you feel better you recover better. Thankyou Cleveland Clinic
