    I was at The Cleveland Clinic last Monday for tests. My wife and I drove up from NC on Saturday. We stayed at the Doubletree Hilton downtown which is 4 miles away from the clinic. We walked to the Rock & Roll Hall of fame on Sunday, and took in a show in the Theater district that night. My first echo was at 7:30 on Monday. Had tests all day with an echo stress test being last. We met Dr. Desai for the first time and really liked him. He had already looked at my test results from NC Baptist and was just confirming I need Papillary Muscle Reorientation surgery. I am waiting for the surgeon to call me to set the date. I was very impressed with the Clinic. Good Luck with your tests.

      Thank you. Why don't they admit as inpatient. It would make it so much more affordable for us.

        I agree. They were so efficient moving you from one test to the next one and the doctor had the results of each test immediately.

            Philip, these tests are all considered outpatient studies for determining diagnosis and plan of care. Insurance will not pay for people to be inpatient for testing in this day and age.

              And just to add to Midge's comment: they don't charge less for those things for inpatients. And they'd charge you for the room too.
