Review for Dr. Gilbert

Was able to get appointment fast. She knows her stuff and was able to explain the diagnosis and treatment options clearly. I trust her.

Review for Dr. Bicher

I was having severe headaches, attention issues, and OCD when I decided to seek treatment at Neurogrow. I’m not exaggerating when I say Dr. Fotuhi changed my life! Thanks to him and his team members, I’m now able to go back to school and do the things I enjoy.

Review for Dr. Hendi

I highly recommend Dr. Khanna. He performed a spinal fusion on me several years ago that gave me my quality of life back. I could hardly walk. He explained my condition and treatment to me very thoroughly and put me at ease. I will refer to him if I need a surgeon in the future.
