I've been suffering with this excruciating pain (hip area) for ruffly more than 11 years I'm 35 yrs old now I've been to so many doctors and all have misdiagnosed me with the real reason I'm having so much pain but let me tell you my first visit with Dr.Mayer he actually listened to me& asked me questions & decided to send me to get 2 MRI'S done. At the following appointment he told me what I have & how he was going to help me out. I'm just beyond grateful for DR.Mayer I can't wait to start doing all the normal activities & actually going out more with my children & husband without this pain ruining our plans. I just can't wait to start walking without a limp (duetopain). Thank Dr.Mayer I can't wait to starting feeling better. Oh & his staff is very sweet & kind as well.

THE WORST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER SEEN! I would give him negative stars, if I could. He did not listen to me, and misdiagnosed my bulging disc, saying the shooting pain down my left arm was Bursitis & he gave me an injection. He refused to administer oral steroids to alleviate my pain. It was the worst month of being under a doctor's "care"! After the pain got worse after the misdiagnosis, he tried a nerve root block. Horrible experience! I repeatedly asked if I needed someone to drive me home after the procedure & was told I didn't need sedation. He lied & said the initial injection for numbing meds was going to be the worst pain I'd feel throughout the procedure. That was not true! My blood pressure was very elevated before the procedure, and even more after(180+/110+) and no one seemed concerned. Just told me I could get dressed & leave after 15 minutes. Called back with no pain relief from nerve block & he referred me to a surgeon with bad reviews(Eeric Truumes). I do not trust him!!!!!

Dr. Mayer is the best! For some reason he is no longer with CCF. It is truly the patients and CCF loss. He was very thorough and explained everything! What a very big loss to his patients. Now I have a CCF doctor performing a procedure on my back I have never met! Poor decision CCF!

I really liked Dr. Mayer. He listened to what was going on with my back. I couldn't even stand up straight when I went and saw him. He explained everything I could do at home to help too. He didn't have me wasting my time going to therapy multiple times a week. He told me the stretches to do at home and I did them and still do. He was very nice and compassionate. He was also thinking the same as me as far as surgery being my very last option. Some Doctors push for surgery right away.

I'm EXTREMELY shocked to see he has a low review! I have a rare birth defect and I'm very protective of myself because of it. I went to see him for my spine and he was very professional! He really couldn't help me BUT he didn't lie like most doctors do so that let's me know he's a doctor for the right reasons! Every question I asked he answered the best he could and told me he could refer me to another doc with more experience! I really appreciate him for that! He's a nice person!

He never even did a physical exam nor did he review medical history. He and his nurse practitioner were condescending and borderline rude. Gave no recommendations for aftercare and gave a diagnosis that two doctors since actually laughed at. He nor his nurse truly listened to what we were saying and the nurse asked why were there. (We were referred by Neurology at CC). Also both commented because my husband and I came back together. Could not have been more disappointed.

He explains the condition and ensures that his explanation is understood, and he listens well. He also provided me with some great tips to deal with the issue I am having on my own.

He used analogies to my condition that made no sense to me. Example 1927 Yankee baseball team. Did not answer some questions that we asked. Did not appear interested in hearing what I had experienced in arriving at the reason I was a Cleveland Clinic. Appeared anxious to get on to another patient. Made some statements that I questioned were correct. Example--My time for healing at age 80 would not make a difference from a younger age. Left without giving instructions.
