The doctor was very impressive with her knowledge and concern that it had taken so long for us to get a correct diagnosis from three other neurologists. She believes she can get some definitive answers after the test i.e. Lumbar puncture, 3 MRI's and EEG. We will be looking forward to the results and trust we will finally understand the problem.

This was my first experience with Cleveland Clinic's group of doctors but it won't be my last. Compared to the other clinicians I've seen over the past 4 months during my current illness, Dr. Compenciel is hands down the best. She was attentive, courteous and knowledgeable of my illness. Her suggested treatment seems to be working and I don't have to take as much medication as before. Thanks.

Dr. Dompenciel is very thorough, a great time manager and always up to date and aware of all aspects of my care. Also, the location of her office in Palm Beach Gardens is excellent for us, patients that have poor mobility. The location at City Place makes it very challenging for me to reach the CC office. I am grateful that she was moved to Palm Beach Gardens.
