Dr Carey was friendly and professional And made me feel totally at ease as she examined me. She explained everything fully and carefully to me so when I left her office I felt 100 percent better than when I arrived. I recommend Dr Carey. Doris Lehman

I have been seeing a lot of doctors over the years for my problem and Dr. Carey is the perfect example of what a doctor should be. She spent a lot of time, did a thorough examination and really cared about me and my problem. I wish all Doctors were like her!!

Dr. Carey came highly recommended by another top neurologist in New York. Feel so fortunate to be under her care. Dr. Carey is smart, caring and very gentle and precise when doing procedures. She's honest and tells it like it is. I travel almost 2 hours each way for every visit and would not consider going to anyone else. She's awesome and I highly recommend her.

Dr. Carey is an extremely smart, dedicated physician who has truly cared for me while I cope with a difficult degenerative condition. She is strategic and a partner in my care. Above all of those attributes, she is "tell it to you straight" genuine and very kind. I feel so fortunate to have found such a great doctor.

Beyond poor care! Totally unreliable. Honestly I am not sure why I went back after my first experience when she had promised to call with information and it took WEEKS. Shame on me, I saw her again and before I left the appointment I specifically asked whether she thought she would be able to do what she promised within a week's time. She said yes, absolutely. That's two months ago and multiple calls to the office resulted in no response. Hard to understand why she is practicing medicine.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Carey is real, energetic, extremely bright, and very caring with her patients. I am not easy on doctors, and fire many of them when I believe they are fake or not telling me the straight truth. Dr. Carey tells it like it is, and explains everything in a clear way. I am extremely pleased to have Dr. Carey as a part of my treatment team.
