Dr. David Vexler nearly killed me

If you would like to go in for what a Dr. David Vexler describes as a "routine" surgery and have him nearly kill you, he is the doctor for you! Yes, putting *** in your colon, closing you up, and brushing you off when you call with post-operative issues is the way my "routine" surgery went. Literally nearly dying, spending months in and out of the hospital, permanent damage, and a six figure bill from the Cleveland Clinic is where I ended up choosing Dr. Vexler for my care. Yes, now I have short term and long term issues that I have to deal with and pay for because of his carelessness.

User's recommendation: Stay Away from Dr. David Vexler.

Receptionist for Dr. Gongidi

She misinformed me. I had a ct scan due. She told me to schedule my own appt for said scan. The radiology dept told me ONLY the Drs office can schedule these. I then returned for a follow-up appt. At 4:00P.M. I got there at ten of 4 by 4:57 I had to leave without being seen. She was very condescending. I've had to ask for copies of my test results a few times. I finally received my stress test results at said appt. but have yet to hear or see anything about my ct scan. I asked her if there were complications will the Dr. at least give me a call? She said yes. I have not heard from either since my appt. So, I'm writing you in case I drop dead there is SOMETHING to read and know. Thank you for your time.

User's recommendation: find another cardiologist.

My test results and what they found

Horrible Service

Went to see an endocrinologist Dr. Yogi-Morren and she stated that I need an MRI. It has been a week still have not heard from her and I left several messages. I am not understanding how they could say oh we believe that you have a tumor but not call with any results. Other issues have raised and not sure if I should see another doctor if it is related. Also when making an appointment for the actual MRI, they kept pushing it back and changing the date without my knowledge.

User's recommendation: Chose someone else.

DCMSVCS = Collection Agency

My husband had tests done on June 16 at Cleveland Clinic. He was billed for the tests on August 15 with the balance due on September 5. I paid the total due on August 23 via credit card. At 8:00 a.m. on August 27, I received a call from DCMSVCS, a company hired by Cleveland Clinic to make sure how the bill will be paid. My husband had passed away on July 25th and they were worried about his estate paying the bill!! How insensitive and inconsiderate. When I stated the bill was paid, the woman asked in a rude voice, "When was it paid?" Shame on Cleveland Clinic for doing business in such a rude and crude manner.

User's recommendation: Go somewhere else for treatment. The prices charged were outrageous and treatment for collection was demeaning.

Lies, Rejection.

Update by user Aug 05, 2020

Nothing yet

Original review posted by user Aug 04, 2020
I was given a double lung transplant at Cleveland clinic, I then stated I wanted to go to a closer hospital, Was Told by a Doctor Lane I should have never been given these lungs if I'm going to leave. I went to U.K. Lexington, It was 1 hr away instead of 7. I had an appointment in March for which it was cancelled, was supposed to go in April, Then the Covid-19 Hit, And my state was on lockdown, Didn't get to U.K. until June, The was told My Lungs are rejecting and there is nothing they can do? Was Given 6 months to a year to live. They sent my records back to Cleveland clinic For which I have not been there in 2 yrs, Then I was sent a letter, stating I am not getting put on the transplant list for re-transplant, Due To no support system, I have a better one now since the first transplant, Lifestyle change? Don't know what that means? And not taking meds? If I didn't take my meds I would have been dead a long time ago. This letter was sent by a Marie Bedev, My Insurance covered everything I had covered all co-pays, then the letter came, I was given 7 visits from my insurance co at no cost to me. was told to come for testing. Then the letter came. So Because of these lies, these doctors can say whether you live or die?? I also didn't mention that they nicked my kidneys on the first transplant. Please advise. Scott Mulzoff.

Wrong diagnosis

I went to Solon, Ohio to see a neurologist. I had Parkinson's symptoms. This man spent maybe 15-20 minutes with me. He immediately announced I had Parkinson's Disease. He never asked me to walk. He never asked me to shake my opposite hand to see if the trembling stopped in the other. He did not listen and was not interested in what I had to say. HE DID NOT ORDER A MRI! I do not have Parkinson's. EIGHT years later I have learned i have had a stroke. I called and spoke to the head of this location because a chiropractor discovered it was not Parkinson's by asking me to shake my other hand. That clown was rude and did not want to hear what I had to say. STAY AWAY FROM THE CLEVELAND CLINIC UNLESS YOU ARE EAGER TO DIE...that they will help you do.

User's recommendation: Go to the Mayo Clinic.

PHYSICIAN ALMOST KILLED ME

ON 8/1/018 PASHA SAEED MD MISTAKENLY/IMPROPERLY INJECTED A PAIN MEDICATION INTO MY BRAIN THAT CAUSE ME TO FALL UNCONSCIOUS, A EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM HAD TO BE CALLED. HAD TO INJECT MEDICATION TO BRING ME BACK. THIS MEDICAL MISTAKE RESULTED IN LEFT SIDED WEAKNESS, CLUSTER HEADACHES, VOMITING, AMONG OTHER SYMPTOMS THAT HAS LAST WELL OVER 1 1/2 YEARS. HER REFUSE TO RESPOND TO REPEATED REQUEST TO FILE THIS MEDICAL MISTAKE WITH HIS MALPRACTICE INSURANCE. THE CLEVELAND CLINIC FOUNDATION HAS DONE NOTHING. HE IS STILL EMPLOYED THERE. THIS TYPE OF MEDICATION HAS BEEN KNOWN TO CAUSE TUMORS. THE CEO OF CLEVELAND CLINIC IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL FULL TIME EMPLOYEES. WHEN A PHYSICIAN HARMS A PATIENT HE HIDES BEYOND A LEGAL TEAM TO MAKE IT GO AWAY. SINCE THEN I HAVE SPOKEN TO ANOTHER PATIENT THAT COULD NOT WALK FOR 4 DAYS AFTER AN IMPROPER BACK INJECTION. I WILL CONTINUE TO FIND PATIENTS THAT HAVE BEEN HARMED BY PASHA SAEED MD.

I have heard horror stories from the Florida hospital as well. Unfortunately the "top staff" does not care. They are part of the problem.

Why have you waited 19 months ? Or what have you done to this point ? The more time you waste the fuzzier your case becomes.

CLEVELAND CLINIC NEEDS TO PROVIDE THE OHIO STATE MEDICAL BOARD WITH DOCUMENTATION OF EVERY PATIENT THAT PASHA SAEED HAS HARMED BY MISTAKENLY INJECTING A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE IMPROPERLY. I AM NOT GOING AWAY. THERE ARE OTHER PATIENTS.

Would Highly Recommend

Not the place for back issues

What a joke...False advertising at its best. They show you stories of people coming in in wheel chairs then a year later they are off meds and better. They claim this is peoples last stop. I am 55 am a mess due to another surgeons laminectomy of L2 In Fort Myers. I will not dispute I have other issues from a previous fusion. I have always managed that slight pain since 2011. after the neurosurgeon told me that sitting in a recliner is not a bad life and I cant be that bad as I walked in... Yes, from valet parking to the elevator... Funny how after he knocked the fusion, I asked what about L2. He said yes that still had a bad impingement. Funny that all this new pain started with that surgery, but they chose to ignore that... further insulting is that a P.A calls to apologize after I complained about the remarks. How about management reviews the records This gets better... The Dr. recommends a spinal cord stimulator and I am told I am no way a candidate for that as L2 IS the issue... After he explained he could do surgery but wont it hit me he has no confidence in himself... I am not a fan of surgery but when you are 55 and have zero quality of life and are now on the highest dose of pain meds you have ever been on with no results, you cant drive as you are dui from drugs you cant do anything you love, you cant even walk your dog more than the front of your home or you pay, but hey I walked in... Well I will be going up to Ny where they have component surgeons who care. They dont false advertise and a P.A does not call because you had a serious complaint about the way a Dr. talked to you... Yes, I said okay and hung us. That is an H.R issue and the Dr should answer to them. That is life when you are non-capable of doing something you condescend instead of saying I am not good enough to help you... So, Cleveland Clinic stop with your false advertising. You have no clue how it is to live with debilitating pain and give someone hope and then let them down. I fortunately am not a cancer patient looking for a miracle. I have a spine issue and went by your advertising videos you post on line You may be good at somethings but you dont rank hie in spinal surgery I will also add the Dr. has me in fear when he said you have a cyst in your back with no other explanation... wow. I will follow up with my outcome after I see people in Ny. in two weeks They have proven records with many places to choose from Thanks for my wasted time..

Excessive over billing charges (Rituxan infusions)

I am wondering if anyone has done Rituxan infusions at CCF. I did two infusions, which didn't work - as I was told they may not, and was charged almost $100,00 for the Rituxan medication alone and was hoping I could get some feedback from others with regard to billing. I've done extensive research and from the little information I found, know their charges are ridiculous and are more than 10 times what I should have been charged, and will fight them until my demise. But would love input from others because this is a "specialty drug" and there's not a lot of definitive information about it or its cost. Angry
