My regular Neuro doc sent me to Dr. Ettinger to get another opinion. He is brilliant and I am so glad I was connected to him. He is truly a seizure expert!

Dr. Ettinger was a breath of fresh air and I left my first appointment feeling very optimistic, well educated and much less frustrated as I finally had answers and solid plan in place to tackle my issues. He spent a good amount of time going through my entire history, listened to me and throughly explained everything to me. I definitely feel like I am in good hands and happy to have been seen by him and looking forward to working with him in the future.

Terrible experience. Spent most of consultation trying to get us involved in a charitable program he works with. Then, office didn't submit through insurance for 18 months costing me $1900. After trying to get reimbursed for over a year I finally gave up. Their office and billing dept made no effort whatsoever to help.
