seldom can one schedule an appt at my location in Strongsville--usually have to go 25 to 50 miles away if you aren't already connected to a physician in Strongsville. It is the same with with tests. you can't get anything done with the clinic in less than 30 days and it is usually closer to 60 days. when you are already working with a physician, things usually work a little better. the clinic scheduling system is pretty much a total disaster. I have never run into anyone who would disagree and I have talked with a good many people.

Dr. Bartholomew had reviewed my medical history and was totally up to date before I saw him for my visit. He asked pointed questions, explained everything to me satisfactorily and performed a very thorough examination. He referred me to have blood tests and a urinalysis and got back to me to explain the results as soon as he received them. I would recommend him, without reservation.

Also took the time to explain what was happening in terms that I can actually understand.
