My husband has been going there for about 2 years. He has seen him once. He does nothing to help the cause or give any information to help. Looking for a new doctor.

Did not listen to a word I said. Has his own predetermined outcome and nothing. You say will change his mind. He has ruined my life and I am left with no recourse. Would certainly not recommend him.

I was introduced to Dr. Ajtai in November 2018 and he is a perfect role model for a doctor He listens very carefully to what you are stating (and will take notes) and he is interested in achieving your goal at the end of your treatment(s). After you are done talking, he will then refer to his notes with any questions or necessary clarifications. The Administrative Staff are excellent, very efficient, professional and polite. Many years ago I was treated by Dr. Mechtler. (I apologize doctor if I misspelled your name) for migraines and cluster headaches. I literally ran the gauntlet with my primary and after three (3) months EVERY DAY, all day, all night I said to my doctor ‘look, you need to send me to someone else’! I saw Dr. Mechtler, he treated me with a cocktail of infusions and headache was GONE in 3 DAYS.
