Dr. Maleki was very kind and listened to me as I explained what was happening to me. However, I felt that he was unwilling to go outside his wheelhouse in considering my symptoms and looked only at what fit the diagnosis he had in mind. When other symptoms were mentioned, he dismissed them.On the other hand, he called me after my appointment to set up further testing and explore symptoms I am experiencing in order to continue to help me. I feel that he did show concern for me as a person and wanted to help me. I was simply concerned that the entire picture of my problems were not taken into consideration, which could result in an inaccurate diagnosis.

Dr. Maleki took the time to get a complete medical history (this part was not easy..it was exhausting thinking back to my original pain). But...he did this to get to the root of my pain. He gave me exercises to do and practices that I will put in place. I can already see improvement after just a couple of weeks.

I felt he had tunnel vision and focused on an earlier diagnosis but didn't want to say the new issue is the result of another diagnosis (an diagnosis I had to point out)

The doctor was amazing honestly the best Dr I've had. He was amazing when he knew exactly what was going on with my body before I even told him. He was very thorough in ever aspects a dr could be and when I left the appointment I felt confident that Iwas getting the best cases possible. He wasn't arrogant or make me feel lesser and he was so kind. The rest of the staff from the receptionist to the lady's that worked in parking was 100% awesome. I would recommend anyone that needs medical care to go to Cleveland Clinic regardless how far away it's 100% worth it to get the best possible care a person could imagine. I'm impressed beyond words of how happy I was.
