Dr. Frishberg is incredibly professional, highly-skilled, and extremely knowledgeable. He is direct with his procedures and his explanations. He listens to patients about their needs and concerns, and he explains things thoroughly while providing unambiguous, relevant, important information. Dr. Frishberg is the only neurologist I have seen (out of four total) that is genuinely interested in helping me feel better and alleviate my chronic pain. With Dr. Frishberg, I finally feel as though someo

Saw him once - he changed my husband's diagnosis (which had been confirmed by 3 different doctors) so he could try to convince us to join his current study on Alzheimer's! Needless to say, we did not go back to him. Stay away from this guy!

I have been seeing Dr. Frishberg for a little over 2 years. He is an absolute joy to visit and is one of he smartest doctor's that I have ever had the opportunity to be seen by. He may be out of the office quite a bit, but that is because he is attending conferences in order to gain more knowledge on how to treat his patients. I appreciate the fact that he is up to date on the most current treatments. Highly recommend Dr. Frishberg.

HORRIBLE!! He sees you once then you only see his PA's. Takes one week to get a phone call back. He's never on call. Too big of a practice. He has NO COMPASSION at all. Doesn't like dealing with patient care whatsoever. He stands in front of you with his hands on his hips like your a bother. He has his PA deal with all issues. Extremely poor communication with the entire office staff.
