Dr. Neff and his team were amazing. He was knowledgeable and competent and most of all took the time to figure out the best treatment for my persona needs.

He is not a very good listener, interrupting constantly. He diagnosed my problem as neurological, his field, and suggested a drug. He does not seem to be knowledgeable about any other possibilities. I had a list of 5 other ideas I had obtained from the Internet and his answer to each, was to see a specialist in that field. My problem turned out to have nothing to do with his diagnosis; it was TMJ. I have always been very happy with the doctors at Mayo, but Dr. Neff was very disappointing.
