Very early this past Tuesday morning, (October 3, 2006) both my spouse and
I woke to get a head start on our journey to Cleveland, Ohio to see the only
specialist within miles who treats patients with tarlov cysts. I had to remind
myself of all the people who were praying for us, once I looked outside and noticed the rain pouring down. Than I knew that the man upstairs would be
with us for our long drive because of all these lovely people who had our
best interest in their heart. I was both happy to finally have someone to answer all of my questions about this disorder and than again, I was afraid too--- to hear the truth about what these can actually do in the long run. I had
to take my pain medications before hand because sitting was going to take
a toll on me. My husband was so good in that we stopped many times, just
to walk out my being so uncomfortable. In between I would fall asleep because of the meds which helped the time go faster. Once in Cleveland,
I could not believe my eyes! Metro Health Clinic resembles a college campus. It is huge!!! There are different branches of buildings on different
streets, however, I was given expert directions from the receptionist in the
main building. It is rather unnerving elsewise if this is your first visit here.
Also, Metro Health is not in a very good section of Cleveland...it really is
a replica of our Downtown Detroit in Michigan. Definitely not a place where you want to make it a habit of walking around. Once we got to the proper building to see my doctor, the receptionist were more than kind to me because of the distance we traveled. I honestly got the red carpet treatment.
Although there were dozens of individuals in the waiting area, they gave me
top priority. I was very elated over their hospitality towards me and my husband and I will always remember this the most about Metro Health Clinic.
