Dr. Dompenciel was incredible! She was so clearly knowledgeable about the area I have my issues with and jumped right into some tests during the appointment and really felt like she listened and cared about the symptoms I described. She ordered a plethora of other tests to be done which my prior neurologist never bothered to do so I was very happy with that. She really validated the issues I was being seen for and made me feel like she's really on my side of getting to the bottom of what's ailing me. I very much appreciated that attitude and care by her as I've had a number of doctors I've seen for these exact issues so the opposite and brush me off. Was incredibly happy with how my appointment went and with the tests ordered.

Excellent physician. Competent, Capable and personable.

Reviewed on Nov 20, 2019

Doctor was very polite and professional. She seemed to rush through the visit as my visit with her was about 30-45 mins late. She barely discussed what the xrays illustrated and scheduled me for an MRI. I left wondering what the nature of my neck issues are. Very quick appt. but the Doctor was very polite and professional in the very short time I was with her. I think she may have been over-scheduled which detracts from the patient/Doctor experience.

Reviewed on Nov 18, 2019

I felt the doctor rushed through the exam as to beat the clock. This was the first time I had been rushed through an exam and hope this was a one time experoence, if not I will have to look for a provider who can take the time necessary to give me the best care. I hope this is not a standard by the Cleveland Clinic mposed on their physicams specially a neurologist.

Dr. Dompenciel is FANTASTIC! LPN Chantelle is FANTASTIC; Front Desk staff Shelly & Teresa are FANTASTIC. Unfortunately, Dr. Dompenciel, my husband & I were extremely frustrated and a lot of valuable interaction time was lost because of Cleveland Clinic's reliance on the 176 year old technology of fax. Despite 3 attempts with receipts by the referring doctor's staff to fax records which my husband witnessed and a subsequent attempt by me after learning no records had been received, when we arrived for the appointment, no information was available to Dr. Dompenciel other than what we brought with us and which she only had time during our visit to review. I find it incredulous that an institution of the stature of Cleveland Clinic relies on a 176 year old technology that is not even secure unless it is sent and received over dedicated, encrypted lines. Why doesn't Cleveland Clinic allow document uploads through the patient portal like--oh by the way--Mayo Clinic does? It is inexcusable that Cleveland Clinic doesn't and I feel like valuable time was lost with the doctor because of this gross failure. And frankly, I was very angered by it.
