We love Dr Kidder. I had deep brain stimulation surgery for a benign essential tremor. Follow up with Dr. kidder. Takes a big interest in any issue I have. Calls me himself. Can't say enough wonderful things about him. Have recommended him to many others.

I was having seizures due to undiagnosed epilepsy along with spinal leaks and chiari malformation and Dr. Kidder dismissed my symptoms within several minutes of speaking to me, told me I was just having muscle spasms, wrote a prescription for a muscle relaxer, and rushed out to make his Valentine's Day lunch which announced to the entire office as he tossed his coat on the way out. He was the most dismissive doctor I've ever seen, and then transferring to another neurologist was a nightmare.

I would NEVER recommend Dr. Kidder to ANYONE. He was rude and arrogant and dismissed everything I said. I was suffering from horrible side effects from the medication he put me on and he disagreed that they were horrible. He spent very little time in the room with me and what little time he spent with me, he dictated his notes into the computer and all but ignored me after I had already been waiting over two hours to see him...and I had the FIRST appointment of the day.
