What People Say About Dr. Brian Averell, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

He stopped listening to me the minute I said my sister had migraines. Blew off my actual neurological disease saying it must be migraines then. This is despite a confirmed diagnosis from another neurologist and an optic neurologist, an MRI and a lumbar puncture confirming my disease. He even wrote that it probably wasn't my disease, but was migraines in my records. I never went back and was glad when he left the practice.
