If you have medical needs, Cleveland is the place to be in Ohio. With Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals and MetroHealth you have some of the best healthcare in the country, if not the world. Both the Clinic and UH are highly nationally ranked overall and in specialties, Clinic is #1 in the country for cardiology (Robert Jarvik is on staff), UH is ranked #5 for pediatrics with higher rankings in targeted areas and both systems are ranked high for all specialties. Metro is one of the best trauma hospitals in the country so you end up with all bases covered. I go to UH and can't fault them.

Prices of things will vary widely depending on where you want to live. There is a big west side/east side divide and each side and each city on that side is different and has their own feel. You really have to visit to see what vibe you like the best. Generally there is a lot of wealth and diversity on the East side and the west is more segregated and each community kind of is it's own. Still has money in certain areas but it is generally more conservative and 'new money.' General cost of living is good and there is actually a great deal of access to the area and a lot to do (pro football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer teams, excellent theater district, great dining, great museums plus a lot more). Hot in the summer, cold in the winter with buckets of snow, more on the east side than the west generally but it can be quite bad at times.

If you decide to move to the area let me know and I'll give you info about specific cities and how they might work for you.

What does this have to do with diabetes?

They are possibly moving and need to know about the healthcare options in the area to manage their diabetes and other health conditions. It's in the wrong section, but it is a valid post about long term diabetes management.

Now, what does your flippant comment have to do with diabetes or the original post? Absolutely nothing. Posting an anonymous and pointless comment is pretty sad really, I hope it made you feel better though. Grow up.

Claudia was asking about MD's to my knowledge. Seeing is anyone knew of any endocrinologists or cardiologist. I too would probably come here and ask the same info if I was going out of my city or state. She wasn't asking anyone if the shopping was good or where the closes bar was. I think she is really concerned about getting good care in a new town…Debe

Thankyou, Debe, Yes it is very helpful, anything I can learn about Ohio is helpful; I kind of am hoping that it is Cleveland; Cause I have a friend who is a doctor there that I can maybe contact. It has been a while and I am not really sure what he specializes now, but maybe, if close enough he can help me, As you do, you are so very helpful, and I consider you a great friend; luv:->)lilmarm
