Review of Dr. Brunelli

-

Today I accompanied my husband to his 6 month checkup with Dr. Brunelli and was prepared to take notes. Within a minute of greeting us, Dr. Brunelli made many important observations of the changes in my husband's neurological disorder and suggested adjustments in his medications. Noticing my notetaking efforts, he assured me that everything would be noted in the printed after visit summary. I must reveal that I value details and was impressed with this summary. No way to mess up on meds!

Review of Dr. Brunelli

-

I have seen several different neurologists since being diagnosed with PD and did not stay with them for various reasons. Dr. Brunelli is many notches above the others. He seems to be much more knowledgeable and thorough during examinations. His explanations are clear and to the point. His recommendations are reasonable. I'm happy to have finally found a doctor that I can trust.

Review of Dr. De La Motte

- in Soquel, CA |

He seemed hurried and not focused on my concerns and not much time was spent with me, considering it to 5 weeks to make an appointment. The personal attention as well as the follow up was extremely lacking given the severity of my injury.

Review of Dr. De La Motte

-

I saw this doctor for POTS and heart rate/ blood pressure issues, but he treated me for for migraines with a steroid that was dangerously contraindicated with my other medications. Luckily another doctor caught it! Later, armed with tests from Stanford, I inquired about seeing him again, but he said it was all stress and that he wouldn't work with me. There is plenty available research out there showing that my symptoms are part of a disease process. This guy's got a hammer, looking for nails!

Review of Dr. Brunelli

- in Watsonville, CA |

I have had migraine headaches for over 25 years... Dr. Brunelli is very understanding & very easy to talk to in trying to come up with anything to ease the discomfort & pain I go thru. He does not disreguard your concerns as some Dr.s do & he also listens & cares. It’s taken me alot of time & doctors to feel comfort... I appreciate him & his staff so much!!! I recommend they’re office as often as I can!

Review of Dr. Brunelli

- in Chico California |

I’ve been a patient of Dr Brunelli’s for many years. I’ve had chronic dizziness, and severe headaches since 2002. He has been very helpful in finding a proper use of prescription medications to help with my pain level as well as using Botox treatment’s which has increased my quality of life. He is very knowledgeable and listens to you. I would highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. De La Motte

-Santa Cruz, CA |

The first time I saw him for daily headaches he attempted to prescribe me a medication that I just finished telling him made it hard for me to breathe, and 2 which I told him did not work. During my follow-up visit he asked me 0 questions about my headaches and instead just upped the dose of the medication I told him was still not working. He only explained his reasoning (which was reasonable) when I objected. Did not seem like he cared much about the pain itself. No change in my headaches.

Review of Dr. De La Motte

- in Felton, CA |

Did not read the forms filled out for the appointment. Did not listen to my concerns about medication. Attempted to prescribe me a medication that would interact seriously with medication I am already taking.

Review of Dr. Brunelli

- in Santa Cruz, CA |

I was referred to Dr. Brunelli by my PCP after I suddenly began having symptoms of neuropathy in my feet and lower legs - this was a little over a year ago. I've been seeing him since that time, and have developed a very high level of trust with him, finding a rare combination of competence, compassion, good judgment, openness, and decisiveness. He has helped me enormously in helping me cope with chronic pain and finding the best combination of treatments to make my condition bearable.
