Staff was great on the phone and in office. Dr was patient and kind and knowledgeable. I was told by a neurologists that I had a TIA and when I went to him to check on my heart and I said I had a MRI and was told of the TIA he explained it was an actual stroke due to TIAS disowned when returned to Neuro she said said well actually it was but small. Be that as it may it WAS an actual stroke though. I appreciated him telling me and explaining the details. I would recommend him.
