What People Say About Dr. Achal Achrol, MD

Dr. Achrol and his staff are phenomenal! It’s been almost 5 months since my meningioma surgery and I’m doing great. From my first phone call, Kalina set the tone for the entire experience. She is kind, compassionate, conscientious, efficient, and gave me a sense of peace. In addition to the above, Dr. Achrol is also very experienced, yet humble. He explained everything very clearly, patiently answered all of my questions, and responded quickly to my e-mails. His nurse practitioner, Sheli, is also fantastic. She kept things light with her sense of humor, but is also super knowledgeable and great at explaining things. I highly recommend Dr. Achrol and his staff because they actually made brain surgery a pleasant experience!

We give our highest recommendation to Dr. Achrol. If you are looking for an all-around capable and caring neurosurgeon, I highly recommend you meet with Dr. Achrol for a consultation. Dr. Achrol is my husband’s neurosurgeon who performed brain bypass surgery for his Moyamoya disease. He has trained under Dr. Steinberg and has done over 300 Moyamoya bypass surgeries. I’d love for other Moyamoya patients to find Dr. Achrol so they, too, can receive the same amazing level of care.

I could not have dreamt of finding a more exceptional neurosurgeon. After arriving at my first consultation alone and absolutely terrified, it’s hard to put into words how much he put me at ease, answering every question with sound and digestible medical explanation, patience, kindness and a reserved confidence. To boot, his staff is second to none and every need was met with a prompt and friendly response. I recommend Dr. Achrol without hesitation... I quite literally trust him with my life!
