Dr. Flasterstein is amazing! Only go to his practice if you are willing to deal with a staff that is not willing to communicate and assist patients.

Have been seeing Dr Flasterstein for several years. He is a very experienced neurologist. We always have a good experience at the office. He has helped my child's headaches and she such a better quality of life now.

He is very nice doctor. He has seen my baby since birth in the NICU. Very caring and knowledgeable. He made sure he answered all my questions and made sure I had everything I needed before I left.

Its rare that children look forward to a doctor visit but my son looks forward to Dr Flasterstein's office. His nurse is just as fun and welcoming as he is each time we go. My son is the patient not me and Dr Flasterstein directs his questions and comments to him, he feels empowered and informed each time we leave the office This approach has made my son realize that following drs' orders are his responsibility and even at his young age he is starting to become accountable for his health.

Although the wait time is long, it is usually full of patients so it's to be expected with any specialist doctor you'd visit (I too work in the medical field). I've taken my son here a few times since he's been diagnosed with epilepsy. The doctor reads my son's EEG the very same day and gives me the results right after. No loss of records from place to place. My son loves his magic tricks and free animal crackers. The ladies that make up the staff are very friendly! Tip: be patient.

Great physician, he spends lots of time and has helped our daughter with her migraines. We are pleased and blessed to have found him

We have been seeing Dr Flasterstein for years. He is an excellent physician. Very knowledgable. Wonderful with the kids. Great sense of humor. Always has a joke and breaks the ice with them. Makes going to the doctor easy. I a so tired of parents complaining they have to "wait" at the doctor. That start yelling after 10 minutes. Yet they will stand in line at Disney for 90 minutes. Get your priorities straight. They are taking care of your child. Love this office and the staff.
