Outstanding surgeon. Worth waiting unlimited time if need be, but had short wait.

This response is written to rebut a BOGUS and False negative review on Vitals.com, dated 8/1, which was falsely and maliciously attributed to myself (entitled: ‘ask Dr. Hakim’) by a dishonest ‘anonymous’ source. Dr. Wael Barsoum is an OUTSTANDING orthopedic surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic. I have personally known Dr. Barsoum for years and have always found him to be extremely caring and professional. His surgical outcomes, bedside manner and patient/family responsiveness, both pre and post-surgery are excellent. Never trust an ‘anonymous’ posting on the internet. Signed: Lawrence Hakim, MD

Excellent Surgeon, But! show details Excellent Surgeon, But!
by Steven Reshel on May 3rd, 2014

Dr. Barsoum did an excellent job on my hip replacement, but trying follow up with him is very difficult. I get the impression that he spends more time lecturing than spending time following up with patients. Its very hard to make appointments with him, and the last appointment I had with him, I had to wait three (3) hours. Which is completely unacceptable. I was going to leave a note at leave, but would just have to make another appointment, which would be another six month wait, which I couldn't afford. I guess in summary I would have to say Dr. Barsoum is an excellent surgeon but has much to desired when it comes to follow through/up.
