Patient Comments (3)
Cleveland, OH |
He is an older doctor with a smile that reminds of a friendly grandfather, knowledgeable, kind, prompt, and willing to go the extra mile to stand by you like a super friend, and "fight" the insurance company, and face the paperwork if you ever run out of visits in your care for you to receive proper care for vertigo. The staff is also a great match to the same level of friendliness, and efficiency in returning calls, and "getting on the ball" to help provide excellent care.
I would rate this doctor a zero if I was able to. I was pursuing the Cleveland Clinic as a last resort due to a variety of strange neuro symptoms. Dr. Lederman immediately dismissed me, refused to review my medical records, acted as if my symptoms were all in my mind (spent only 5 min w/ me in his office). He ordered several tests- one of which was abnormal. However, his letter to my PCP indicated everything was normal (even though one was abnormal) and suggested I needed a psych eval. Awful!

If I could rate a zero I would. This Dr. went off of physical appearances instead of results. He Falsely documented sensation, balance and muscle strength test. Was very quick to place a diagnosis without full evaluation. He stated my past migraines which left me unable to use my right side for almost a week and residual weakness never occurred. During the 1hr eval he left the room 3x leaving the computer screen on with all patients information for the day visible. BEWEARE
