Patient Experience Reviews
Great Doctor. Very intelligent and practical.
Dr. Ann Failinger and her Staff are awesome! Thank you for taking good care of me since Day 1. My family and I truly appreciate you all!!! Thanks.
I love Dr Ann. My kids have seen her since they were babies. We do usually have to wait in the waiting room but it's because she takes time with her patients and is very thorough. She is easy to talk to and explains things well.
Dr. Ann has been my children's doctor since the day they were born and I couldn't ask for better care.
Dr. Failinger and Chardon Pediatric's Staff went above and beyond as always. My family and I profoundly appreciate you all! Thank you.
The visit with Dr. Ann was great! She explained evywe needed to watch for. It was very upsetting feeling like the nurse was very judgmental for the reason we made the visit.
Dr Ann and the whole practice are very kind and helpful! We've been with them for 16 years, and all 4 of our children love her!
Dr. Failinger did an excellent job trying to care for all of her patients. She was working way into the night to make follow-up phone call that she said she would. The wait may have been long, but considering the fact that she was the only provider, I commend her on her organization and caring. The computer systems were less than desirable for both reception and the Dr. Failinger to provide optimal care. Introducing new systems of documentation without full integration connecting to older systems of electronic medical records is not only a safety issue, but also severely affects her ability to provide care within better time constraints. Pediatrics is a very busy office with a wide variety of patient care needs. Information Technology department really needs to visit this office in person to evaluate which areas can be improved upon for this office. Also UH administration needs to address the need for additional pediatricians to handle the patient census. There has got to be a better plan to retain providers at this office and plan for future provider coverage.
The wait times are ridiculous. We have had three routine care appointments in the last 6 months and every one we have been put in small office and made to sit for over an hour and 15 minutes before we ever see anyone, then when the doctor comes in the appointment takes less than 15 minutes! So the majority of our time is just spent sitting and waiting. We understand sometimes things can come up to cause delays but at this office this is the norm. Either scheduling needs to be adjusted or more doctors need to brought into the practice. Dr. Ann is wonderful but she can't do it all!
Dr Ann is outstanding. Wouldn't take my kids to anyone else.
We love Dr. Ann and her staff. She is an excellent provider and truly cares about our kids. She is knowledgeable about their medical history without even looking at records. She's one of a kind!
Dr. Ann is great. She is attentive and explains things thoroughly and clearly. She takes the time to makes sure she understands the problem and discusses it with the patient. A++ provider. She also called to follow up. Excellent. The wait can be long if you are there at the end of the day like we were. The staff is friendly and helpful.. So it lessens the frustration of the long wait. It seems from just observing the office, that another physician should be staffed there to help with the volume of appointments. Find one like Dr. Ann!
Dr. Ann is wonderful, ***
*** I absolutely love Ann Failinger but have been tempted to find a new Dr just because of the wait times. It is extremely frustrating!
Dr. Failinger is a great physician. I always feel she listens to what I tell her about my kids and explains things thoroughly. She takes the time to return phone calls and relay results even when it's after hours. As a mom, having a pediatrician like Dr. Failinger is wonderful and provides so much reassurance.
We love the office and dr Falinger. Extra wait times with sick season and loosing members of the physician team are understandable.
Overall a good experience, Ann is doing her best being the only doctor in the office.
Wonderful experience, appreciated the receptionist for getting Teagan in the day I called and scheduled her next check up as well. The doctor was patient when listening and very informative and helpful during the appointment.
University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.
UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
