dr Amarakone is one of the best neurologist we have ever had . He took the time 3 yrs ago to keep searching for answers as to what was wrong with my husband. He was not an easy case , but dr Amarakone did the testing over a course of a few months to figure it out. If it wasn't for him my husband would not be alive today! So if you are one of your love ones needs a really good, kind, CARING, neurologists please make an appt with him ! You will not be disappointed.

Tina in office is very rude and abrupt. His PA,is great.But getting him to respond is like pulling a tooth. I'm going to find new dependable doctor. I say save yourself any anxiety and steer clear.
