Great no-nonsense doctor.
My first visit was very good, but then it was downhill from there. The staff is an extension of the surgeon. They are capable but as with anything, no one is perfect. So that one or two times that they make a mistake, I was it. But the problem is they make the error worse by trying to hide or lie their way thru it. At the end of the day, this is a business. The surgeon and staff are not your friends and they are not doing you any favors. My experience here was very unpleasant. Do your research before choosing any surgeon.
I loved him in 2005 when he performed knee surgery and I loved him today when he evaluated my other knee.
The staff members are courteous and professional. The facilities are clean and comfortable. More importantly, the doctor was kind, receptive and took the time to listen as I explained my injury. He was clear as to what the next steps were. I highly recommend this doctor and his staff.
Staff, Dr Cleeman's assiatant, Michelle, and Dr Cleeman excellent in every way. Professional.
From the time getting off the elevator to leaving the office 35 minutes later, the quality and professionalism unmatched--could not have been any better. From the assistant at reception, the Doctor's assistant, to the X-ray technician to Dr. Cleeman courteous and very professional in appearance and manner. Dr. Cleeman took the time to explain the problem, various solutions and then recommendations.
I really liked Dr. Cleeman. He took his time to ask me questions and give me a comprehensive exam. I've been having major knee trouble that nobody seems to have been able to figure out, including two other orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Cleeman seemed to understand my issues and gave me a course of action that made sense to me. I recommend!
Dr. Cleeman is great. Wonderful bedside manner. Wonderful demeanor and great explanation. The office is run like a top. Great professional staff.
It was friendly and efficient
The staff in the clinic is not very nice. Everything is like a factory.
Dr Cleeman was nice. My arm was in pain and he told me I had tennis elbow. He said I should wear a splint to help make it better and that there's also a drug to help with the inflammation. What REALLY turned me off was after I left the room to head back to reception, a woman called my name and said the doctor said I need a wrist splint and that they'll give me one right there. I figured that will save me a trip to Duane Reade so I didn't think anything of it. Then she put it on me and had me sign on a pad to confirm I have it. As I was signing, I asked her how much it cost and she told me what it was (not allowed to specify here for some reason) and it was almost 7x the amount of what they would charge at Duane Reade and Amazon. She said they'll charge insurance and if they don't cover it, I'm responsible. And oh by the way it's non refundable and I've already signed for it. The nerve! There was no time to even process what was happening! To add insult to injury, I received a receipt later that afternoon to show that I was charged a lot more than what she quoted!! For what should cost a small amount ended up costing me a whole lot more at this place. They copied my signature from my acknowledgement on the first page and put it on the following pages with the actual price! Which I never saw at the office! I hate places like this that take advantage of its patients! The people who go there are in pain and this place takes advantage of the state people are in for the bottom dollar. I felt so cheated and ripped off. I don't recommend this practice at all.
I've seen Dr Cleveland twice now. Once for my knee and once for my elbow. I really like how attentive he is and the options he offers you as a patient. All the staff is great all around.
The visit to Dr. Cleeman's office was, without a doubt, the most efficient, friendly, professional visit that I have experienced in years. The office is well appointed, the staff very helpful and friendly, and Dr. Cleeman was the consummate medical professional. Without and hesitation whatsoever, I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic services. The visit to his office reaffirmed my belief that there are top-notch medical providers out there, despite the pressures of HMOs and ACA. Well done Dr. Cleeman and staff.
This was my first appointment with Dr.Cleeman, or any Orthopedic doctor in Astoria for that matter. Everyone was very kind and professional from the receptionists, to the x-ray technician, and of course the Doctor was a pleasure. They made me feel comfortable and did a great job diagnosing and making me feel better by the time I left the practice. They are a group I recommend to anyone needing any type of orthopedic medical advice.
Wonderful. Friendly, efficient staff and a seamless process from start to finish. I didn't realize that I booked an appointment for the wrong type of surgeon, but Dr. Cleeman saw me anyway and made sure my wrist was ok (he does shoulders and knees). Very satisfied with the care I got and would recommend to anyone.
Thorough doctor who gave me options. I will recheck with him.
Overall great experience. Very pleased.
I left feeling comfortable
Quick visit, great bedside manner, great front desk staff. Highly recommended.
Staff was very friendly, even when an eccentric patient walked up to the front desk asking who was in charge of taking care of the plants because they looked neglected. They were very tactful in handling the situaton. Dr. Cleeman was professional and thorough. He made me feel comfortable and laid out all the options for my injury. I felt informed and ready to make a decision about next steps to my recovery. I would return and recommend.
AMAZING doctor, very very good at that he does, takes time to listen and understand, and is the nicest sweetest doctor you can EVER meet
Dear Medical Team, Please fix your connection with ZocDoc, since the forms I filled weren't propagated to the medical office. I don't intend to spend another 30 minutes filling out the forms again. Best Regards
The front desk staff are a bit unpleasant, but don't let that turn you off. The doctor is very professional and knowledgeable, and you're in and our fairly quickly, even if you need x-rays, which are done on-site.
Dr. Cleeman is fantastic- extremely knowledgeable diagnosing an issue that was difficult to sort out by previous specialists. He even personally followed up with me following the results of my diagnosis. Highly recommend.
A little cold but seemed to be a smart doctor.
Went to check up on my knee from a soccer injury. He was patient and thorough with his diagnosis. I am scheduled to get surgery on my knee with him and fully trust him.
Front office is very impersonal but Dr. Cleeman was great.
Dr Cleeman was great, he spent plenty of time with me, listened to my concerns and referred me for appropriate treatment. The clinic as a whole was also great with lots of attentive staff and great facilities.
I was very pleased
Very nice doctor, friendly, honest and knowledgeable. What I loved the most was that he recommended physical therapy first before doing any sort of shots.
I found this doctor to be pleasant, warm and friendly. Very professional and very engaging with my medical needs. I highly recommend his services.
Straight forward and knowledgeable.
I have mixed feelings about my visit. On the one hand, the staff was incredibly quick and friendly. I didn't have to really wait at all. My x-rays were done on sight very quickly too. That's very impressive, especially considering I'm used to endless wait times at Orthopedic doctors offices. Dr. Cleeman is friendly and it seems he's very respected and beloved. My frustration is that I didn't feel listened to. I felt as if my injury was "too complicated" to merit serious discussion. I felt brushed off slightly and my partner (who went with me) expressed the same frustration but we felt we just weren't being heard. Again, I know he is a great doctor and I can see why. I just didn't feel important or listened to and thus will not be returning most likely.
Dr. Cleeman was polite and professional, and spoke to me as though I were a real person- which I am, of course, but it's amazing how many doctors don't do that. I felt like he explained things well and gave me just the right amount of information. The office staff were pleasant and seemed well-organized and on top of things. This was only my first visit but I would recommend him.
There was no wait time. Dr. Cleeman was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I appreciated that he took the time to explain the x-ray to me, and he made me feel at ease.
Dr. Cleeman, was so pleasant, quick and to the point. Very pleased. thanks
Excellent experience. Friendly, answered all my questions and listened well.
My only wait time was while I was completing my paper work. Dr. Edmond was friendly, clear and direct. I felt confident in his diagnosis and explanations, and feel clearer about my how to recover from my tendinitis.
Great guy! Has excellent incision closes (minimal scaring).
Dr. was polite and very informative
