Cleveland Clinic

I'm scheduled to see Cardiologists Dr Wilkoff & two other MDs at Cleveland Clinic in Aug 2019.  Any advise for how to deal with hotels, transportation, apartment rental, etc while I will beT in Cleveland waiting on APPTs, Procedures or tests?

Visit to Cleveland Clinic

Cleveland Clinic should have all the available information to accomodate your visit.  I had to travel out of State twice for procedures (my EP had recommended I see a specific EP), and the hospital was most accommodating at finding me a discount rate for the hotel, advised on transportation, etc.  

Don't worry--they have it covered

Places like Cleveland Clinic are used to treating people from all over the world.  You won't be the first patient from out of town. I'm sure they have every need already taken care of. Often hospitals work with local hotels that will offfer you special rates and help with transportation.

Call the same number you called to get the appointment and tell them what you need.

You have a pretty rare complication. Glad you're going some place where rare cases are seen.

 

Not the first one

The way I like to think of this is you are not the first one.  You are not the first one to have a procedure out of town.  Both the doctors office in that town that is doing the procedure should be able to give advice, likewise the hospital.  Hotels, parking, how early to get there, etc...

I have been there a number of times. Regardless of which department you are going, there are a number of hotels that are walking distance to the hospital. These are all reasonably priced hotels specifically for patients from out town

Just ask Cleveland Clinic help desk, and they will give you all the necessary information. Cleveland Clinic is not just a hospital, in some ways it is a city by its own. They will care of everything that you need

I am fortunate to live close to the Clinic, and see my heart doctors once every six months there.  They are very helpful people.  You will see men and women walking around the "Heart Building"  with red coats who will assist you with any questions you may have.  They have a really nice gift store on the first level of the Sydell and  Arnold Miller Building, which is where all the heart-related appointments are.  But if you're like me and want a real Coke, forget it.  Only diet-related stuff in the cafeterias.  Yuck.  Good luck and enjoy Cleveland.
