Horrible! He asked me why I have seen many Neurologist, I told him because no one can figure out whats wrong with me! He did a nerve conduction test and that was it! Very rude to me and I just left the office. No Doctor will treat me with disrespect EVER!

Dr. Pettee was very thorough in my examination, I would strongly recommend him and his practice. He did not hesitate to order an MRI to make conclusions. I received the MRI results on the day promised. I'm very glad I was referred to Dr. Pettee by my primary doctor.

Dr Pettee is the most thorough and knowledgeable doctor I have experienced. Had a form of shingles on my arm; only doctor out of four could cure it. Recently had severe leg pain only doctor to take time to diagnose as spinal stenosis. Though I was in horrible pain he insisted I avoid surgery, which I was able to do. Mike Mosher

I asked Dr. Pettee about the possibility of having a sleep disorder. He said there was no possibility and that I should consider seeing a psychologist for a split personality disorder. Completely offended, I didn't get a sleep study done until my cousin encouraged me to just go on my own two years later. I was diagnosed with narcolepsy with cataplexy. My episodes were automatic behavior and cataplexy. You think a neurologist would know the difference.

I saw Dr. Petee after seeing a few other doctors. He was the first doctor who tried to help me and sent me for treatment after months of struggling with blephorospasm.

Dr Pettee was the second neurologist I was sent to. I was being treated for back muscle strains for over 6 months. My PCP decided to get a 2nd opinion since the first neurologist’s exam still thought my lower back pain and leg dragging was related to the muscle strain. Dr Pettee thought differently and ordered a MRI of my head. It found a brain tumor the size of a baseball! He is a fabulous diagnostician. I am also a RN.

i have been with Dr Pettee for some time and he has always taken the time to help me. he is very good at explaining things to you in a way that you will understand.when you give him all your symptoms it helps him to help you and then the right tests can be done. i have recommended him to many people and don"t do this very often for other doctors i have seen in the past.

Dr. Pettee is an awesome physician! He explained each procedure before going ahead with the procedure and made sure I was okay with it before proceeding . He also explained the results of each procedure as well. I felt very at ease in his care and would highly recommend him to family or friends without hesitation!

Dr. Pettee is intense and focused. He explains things in detail, and is receptive to questions. On return visits he has been very familiar with my situation, and even with elements of my life. I trust this doctor implicitly,

Dr. Pettee is very knowledgeable and intelligent. He knows answers to almost all questions I might have. When explaining information, he does not speak down to me. If I ask him to explain a medical term, he does so clearly and succinctly. For me, he is a good match. He works quickly and professionally. If a person needs more warm fuzzies, he/she may prefer a different MD. if a person wants to spend time talking about personal topics, he/she should either adjust expextations or ange Drs.

This doctor is intelligent and unlike most other doctors I've had the misfortune of meeting, Dr. Pettee explains my illnesses, the possible treatment paths, and exactly how my medications work. I have never had another doctor do those things as well as this doctor does. In addition, he's quite friendly and not at all an arrogant jerk like many other doctors I've had in the past. Would 100% recommend him to anyone.
