Waste of time and hope. He was a nice guy and the staff was friendly, but he was no help at all Went to see him as suggested by my primary doctor and others in the medical field after hearing about symptoms I was having ranging from numbness in face, facial, neck and shoulder pain and tightness, which had been gradually worsening. I was told by him to get of the last EMG test that I had done (which was 8 years ago) he based his opinion that "things were normal" based on that test. He said that I have a degenerative disc disease and didn't offer any advice other than doubling my muscle relaxers, which weren't helping. He said there was nothing that could be done. I know I have pinched nerves because I was told that in 2004 by a different neurologist. I guess the nerves got unpinched even though my symptoms have worsened(?) Being told there is nothing that can be done tells me he just didn't want to bother. Very disappointed after waiting months to see him.

One of the worst experiences ever. I have been to several Doctors in the course of my 44 years and never have I seen or been treated as poorly as with him. Upon seeing a different Neurologist they determined he did not order the correct blood work, did not due an adequate job with his treatment recommendations and were very apologetic regarding a medical professional treating a patient as he did. Due yourself a favor and do not subject yourself to him. If I could write more I would.

I dont get the lower ratings. This doctor was great. Maybe people didn't like the diagnosis because his patient manner was world class
