I got to the office they took me to a room. Ab 15 latter a office person came in to the room and said dr Aalbers. Look at my history and said I was too complicated and did not want to deal with me. He did not even have the decency to come tell me himself. This was my second trip to that office in one day being promised I was going to see him. The could have called and told me so I did not have to make a second 25 min drive wasting gas to get there. I am still awaiting on an apology from him but wait Doctors can do no wrong nothing is there fault. So I am not expecting an apology bc he even had his office person tell me. Time to man up DrAalbers And take Responsibly and admit when you’re wrong and Be a good human and apologize.

I couldn’t ask for a better neurologist than Dr. Brian Albers. It’s very scary being diagnosed with having a brain AVM. I feel very well taken care of by Dr. Albers, he listens, answers questions and I never feel rushed. He is a compassionate well knowledged doctor.

I had a visit with Dr. Aalbers this regarding migraines with aura and the associated stroke risk in pregnancy. He was extremely thorough and spent time with me answering all of my questions.

Dr. Aalbers has been my son's neurologist for 4 years now. He is a movement specialist and has helped to address issues that my son has with dystonia. He has an excellent bed side manner, but is honest. He spends plenty of time answering our questions. He has made a hugely positive impact on my son, and we feel so blessed to have found him.

Dr. Aalbers was incredible. He was able to quickly identify our daughter's condition, but didn't stop with just a diagnosis. He spent time discussing treatment options and explained things about the condition that we had never realized were connected. It was obvious that he is extremely well versed in identifying and treating neurological conditions. My daughter was moved to tears knowing that she finally found someone who understood and recognized what she has been going through. I can't recommend him enough. He is a rare find in today’s medical industry.

Dr Aalbers is very caring and does a great job of explaining things to us! He is very knowledgeable with my sons condition and if there is something that he did not know the answer to, I know that he would take the time to find out! We travel several hours from Nebraska just to see him! So worth it!

Dr. Aalbers staff were professional, kind, and helpful. Dr. Aalbers nurse let me know he was running about 15 minutes late. She wanted to make sure that was OK with our schedule. Dr. Albers receptionists were adamant that our daughter get in for testing before the school year started. They helped accelerate the process, and get her in. Dr. Albers had a great bedside manner and took the time we needed to answer any and all questions.

Dr Aalbers helped save our daughter's life. He could see she was failing her first epilepsy med and he knew the statistics that she would fail the next and the next. We only saw him once, but it was because he cared enough to recommend she be seen by an epileptologist and be considered for epilepsy surgery. She had her surgery 18 months ago and has been seizure-free ever since. I will always be very thankful for Dr Aalbers knowledge and expertise.

Dr. Aalbers is one of our Angels here on earth. He has been the only Dr. out of many we have seen that really listens to parents' concerns and takes them seriously, discusses family history in detail, and looks at the whole picture. He is the only Dr. who really looked at my child's movement and saw the problems I had reported and added some to our list. He was willing to test for rare conditions that could be an underlying cause, found that condition, and eliminated it with correct meds.
