I really like Dr. Singer a great deal! That being said, the appt department is lacking badly. You can call a million times and never get through, you can leave voice mails, and never get a call back! But you can use my chart and get a cold response! I had an appt for Oct 2019, his staff called said he would be out of the office so I needed to redo appt. We tried a million times to call, left voice messages, never got a responce! Only after I emailed them on my chart did I get a non pleasent response. I tried to get my appt rescheduled for any Friday in Sept or oct. I was coldly informed he had nothing on a friday for Sept or oct. I explained i can't drive and the only day I have a driver is on fridays, and he schedules me to see him only every 6 months. I also explained that if they had looked at my past appts they would have seen i only come on fridays, and they could have redone appt for another fri before all appts were booked. They didn't do that.

I have been happy with Dr Singer up til now , and I have been seeing him for the last 3 or 4 years, but since Heather left my appointments keep getting rescheduled and tests don’t get scheduled unless I remind them, I actually and to get my brain MRI thru my primary care doc because his office never got around to scheduling it!! And forget about getting through On their phone system, and it takes them awhile to get back to you.

The most amazing doctor I have ever had. He solved all of my MS issues. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Barry Singer. As far as I am concerned, he has been my angel. When I talk with other people I know who are seeing him, I hear the same things. They all say things like "how glad they are to be a patient of his, and great he is as a MS doctor." I have had different doctors for my MS issues, and he is by far the best.

I love Dr. Singer and his staff; however,trying to schedule/change an appointment is extremely frustrating. Almost to the point of just giving up. My 6 month checkup in May was rescheduled by your office; the new appt in June was rescheduled by your office because Dr. Singer was not available, new July appt with NP cancelled because she was not available. I went into hospital with exacerbation July 4 and have been trying to get a followup appt. It's very frustrating.

I have been a patient of Dr. Singer's since March of 2004. He diagnosed my MS right away after I had already seen two other neurologists who were clueless. He has been patient, loving, kind, understanding and very informative all along the way through this journey. I can't imagine what it would be like going through life with this incredibly annoying thing called MS without Dr. Singer. I pray to God that I never have to find out. He's the absolute BEST! A true blessing in my life.

Dr. Singer is a wonderful physician... he's on the leading edge of MS care, and is focused on ensuring his patients' lives are better with the treatments he prescribes. I would give him five stars, but his office staff, with the exception of Danielle, is difficult to deal with. One staff member told me specifically to never use the portal to communicate with the office as "they don't check that." This is after they promoted it when I began seeing Dr. Singer as a great way to contact them.

Very friendly and efficient staff that kept the new patient paperwork to a minimum. Dr Singer was on time, very professional, and conversational. I would highly recommend him.
