What People Say About Dr. Robert Bolash, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was in extreme pain from fall at cleveland clinic park garage. Herniated discs lumbar and impingement of spinal cord in neck. My Internest ordered Xray with contrast injection in hips to start before spinal injection. I went to D Bolash and he agreed with my doctor and a neurosurgeon about treatment. After 19 months of excruciating pain I went back to D Bolash for Xray and injection. A man who i never saw marked an X on both hips. Moved to next room. I assume one was Dr Bolash and a resident approached from both sides. Injected shots and left injection hit femur. Moved to next room then left. The pain from those injections without Xray and contrast has put me back in such pain I have trouble walking. This "Doctor" did not follow my doctors orders or what he agreed to do in his office.THIS WAS PAIN INFLICTED. It is now 3 months and I am still in terrible pain. Run don't walk away from this doctor.

Just because I'm younger and appear to be fine on the outside, doesn't mean I am. I'm disappointed in this Dr. He didn't listen or care about anything I tried in the past or how my quality of life is going downhill from lack of treatment. He was far too conservative in treating me. The appointment was over $800. Truly upsetting.I'm ready to end my relationship with Cleveland Clinic after over 15 years. What happened to you guys.

I felt like my pain wasn’t taken seriously, minimized the impact it has on my daily life. Prescribed a medication I had previously been on, told me try again. Took over 8 business days to respond to a question and only responded because I reached back out to him. Ordered tests then took over a week to release the results without any information about what the results meant. Only described procedure after I asked him about what it entails.
