"Alan Markowitz is a special individual. I spoke with and met with several surgeons in the Cleveland area and beyond prior to my surgery. As a physician myself, I also contacted the Quality Officers of University Hospitals of Cleveland and the Cleveland Clinic. The raw numbers helped in my decision, but meeting with and talking with Dr. Markowitz was the real proof. He visited me every day, answered all my emails, and has been a great support now 4 years after surgery. He was recently recognized as University Hospitals Physician of the Year and given their Lifetime Achievement Award. All deserving. He is humble, a perfectionist, and a wonderful family man. The CCF doctors never asked me about who I am or what I do. No goals were discussed and I felt very much a "number". Dr. Markowitz asked me all of the right questions and WE formed the surgery plan. I am blessed and thankful every day for our meeting. Living in Cleveland, everyone assumes you go to the Cleveland Clinic. I have done my research and am living proof of the results and care of Dr. Markowitz and his team at UHC. "
