in Hollywood, FL
Dr. Padilla has been my neurologist for almost ten years. I have at all times found him to be a compassionate, smart doctor who listens to my concerns. He takes the necessary time during my appointments to make me comfortable and believe I am receiving outstanding care.

Dr. Padilla is great (why there are 3 stars). He's helped me very much with my seizures and has successfully controlled my seizures (so far). BUT, the front desk and his assistant basically do nothing. I have to beg for letters from the doctor for my drivers license and to get an appointment.
