I had a stroke in 2017 and Dr Xavier was the Neuro Surgeon on call that night at St Joseph Mercy. He performed an embolectomy on me and saved my life. I am totally thankful and appreciative of him. He continues to monitor me now and I have basically fully recovered now. Quite a journey and I am very happy to have Dr Xavier watching me.

Dr.Xavier saved my life. At the beginning he never knew me from the man on the moon. He perform a life saving surgery for me. He explained everything he had done to me and showed me pictures of my brain. I remember I was feeling bad for myself because of my incident but he kept smiling as he always does and reassured me that I was doing very good. He has a very bubbly personality. He showed personal affection for me and made me feel like I was not just a number in his daily patient routine. I recall when he did a procedure for me, after the procedure he checked on me several times to make sure I was doing just fine. When you see him he brightens up your day with a beautiful smile. I grew to love him. I trust everything he does. His assistant is one of the best she also takes a personal interest in everyone she comes across. I promise you that Dr. Xavier is excellent at what he does. I couldn’t ask for a better Neurologist hands down!!!

HELP!!! I'm giving it a "fair" because Dr. Xavier himself is good but his staffing is horrible. They have rescheduled on my dad last minute, completely cancelled last minute, mixed up his locations & dropped appointments out of nowhere. It started where we wouldn't find out changes until we arrived for the appointment. Then it went to confirming & still changing last minute. Now the office is too busy to answer calls the last 3 days. Feeling extremely helpless about my dad's health support.

Since my dad's stroke in January, his appts have been re-scheduled or cancelled by Dr. Xavier's office on 5 separate occasions. We have driven to all office locations only to be turned away bc he was at a different office, or not there at all.Conflicting/False info. was confirmed repeatedly, with no direct line or means of contacting him. I've talked to his staff to rectify this w/o any reasonable solution. If you can see a different doc, do it. Otherwise, prepare to waste time @ the last minute
