What People Say About Dr. Linas Vaitkus, MD

I made an appointment to take my almost 89 yr. old Dad to see Dr. Vaitkus March 25th. To make a long story short, after a 2 hour 45 minute wait, we never even saw him. I was told "many emergency's came in. Doesn't one go to the ER for an emergency? We finally left. It is hard enough getting Dad in and out of the car let alone waiting this long. I would not recommend him to anyone. Bonnie Stein

I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS PHYSICIAN TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!! Dr. Vaitkus is significantly detailed, caring, thorough and professional!!! Dr. Vaitkus did not cure my respiratory ailments, but rather helped me to better manage my condition w/the needed medications and products to tremendously improve my respiratory condition!!! Dr. Vaitkus is definitely on top of things, very "state of the art knowledgeable" and helpful in my experiences and in my estimation, BEST pulmonologist in Ohio

Both times I've seen Dr. Vaitkus, I've waited between one and two hours beyond my scheduled appointment time before being seen. He is a good doctor, but he's a long-talker, which sets all the appointments back. It's hard to take that much time out of your schedule during a work day.

Dr. Vaitkus was the only physician who could solve my respiratory problems after seeing four other doctors. He is a wonderful doctor, very kind and he sat down and really listened to my issues. I not longer have any bronchial problems when the wonderful Cleveland weather changes..... I can't thank him enough!!!!
