Horrible customer service. I was recommended to see Dr. Rovner and called to schedule an appt, the appt was scheduled a month out. I had to reschedule that appt so I called 24 hours in advance and was rescheduled another month out. I drove an hour and 10 mins to his office, paid my copay I had to remind the receptionist I had then I waited over two hours and haven’t been seen yet-I told the front desk I had to go because I had to get to work. Took me a couple days to get in contact with someone to reschedule that appt. It was a few weeks out. When that time came I had to reschedule that appt (I get called in a lot for work) and I called 24 hours in advance to reschedule. I get a call couple days later that I am not allowed to reschedule due to too many no call no shows and walking out when I was there at my visit. I never no called no showed and I left bc I waited forever and had to get to work. They insisted they could not schedule me anymore and refunded my copay. When I mentioned I

Rescheduled appointments and then isn't at the office when you arrive. Keep in mind that I was the first patient of the day. Waited over an hour for him to show up. Also, Christine is rude

Dr. Rovner gave me a thorough neurological exam. He took his time and answered all my questions. He was very helpful in setting up a treatment plan. I've recommended to several other people who suffer from migraine headaches.

Dr. Rovner is the most caring and patient sweetheart of a person. He is one of those rare finds. Even if you have to wait to see him, he's worth the wait.

Spent time answering every single question. I have seen him twice with less than a 10 minute wait.The Dr./ his staff are sweet caring people. He is not arrogant he is confident, that made me at ease. I have seen several Dr. who just pass off my pain as "it is your back nothing to be done". His diagnosis has helped me alleviate some of the pain without pills and by having my PT focus on his diagnosis beyond my discs. This Dr. is gentile, down to earth and he knows what he is talking about.

Office staff is discourteous and rude. If you need something done, you'll have to call for a month straight. They will blow you off. This office is a nightmare to deal with when you need anything at all. I don't know if any doctor is worth this amount of trouble
