Dr Buhtoiarov is an amazingly intelligent and kind dr. My three year old is never afraid to go to her appointments with him! We travel at least 1 hour each way to see him and it is well worth the trip! I would highly recommend him and his office to anyone who has a child with cancer.

Dr. B is the leukemia and lymphoma expert. We are lucky to have Dr. B as a doctor for our child. He is very kind and very generous with his time; he always explains everything in very fine details but simply enough for us to understand the information. Also is very nice with children. We feel Dr. B's caring heart and hands since we met with him.
in North Ridgeville, OH |
Very, very nice doctor with unique approach to sick kids. Always does what is best for the family in general. Able to provide reassurance in the most emotionally challenging situations. The overall communication style and bedside manners are very appreciated.
in Lakewood, OH |
Very intelligent, kind and attentious doctor. Also cared a lot to relieve our anxiety and misunderstandings from previous visits to other medical offices. Called on weekend to follow up if we had any questions or concerns.
in Bay Village, OH |
He is funny, he is nice, he talks to kids and make sure kids understand everything (13 yr old patients comments) Extremely patient and allows for as many questions as you can think of Cant think of enough positive things to say He made something that was very scary easier to understand. Always felt reassured after our meetings with him! The nurses and office staff were kind and very sympathetic. They made our daughter laugh and feel more relaxed during her treatment.
in Shaker Heights, OH |
Very good doctor with great bedside manners. It is always fun to watch how he interacts with the patients. Probably one the best in the entire pediatric oncology physicians team at the Cleveland Clinic. Definitely knows how to deal with frustrated parents.

Dr. Buhtoiarov treats my nephew. He is extremely compassionate and very intelligent childhood cancer doctor. There was no visit when we left Dr. Buhtoiarov's clinic with any of the questions being unanswered. Parents of other kids in the waiting area also speak very highly of Dr. B. I am sure Cleveland Clinic rocks because of staff members like Dr. Buhtoiarov. Thank you!
in Parma Heights, OH |
Outstanding doctor. Spends a lot of time to explain disease in simple words. Always makes emergency plan. Very attentive to small details. Works very hard to earn parents and patient trust. Nurses are very nice too. Clinic is very busy on Monday, so waiting can be 20-30 min.

in Cleveland, OH |
Dr. Buhtoiarov is an extremely intelligent physician and a very caring individual. We traveled from another state for my child to receive treatment at the Cleveland Clinic Children's, and it was a great fortune to meet Dr. Buhtoiarov. With incredible passion he took care of my son, who now feels much better and is simply back to normal life. Cleveland Clinic should be proud to have Dr. Buhtoiarov in the pediatric oncology clinic. Thank you for everything Dr. B.!
