in Latham, NY |
At first, he seemed somewhat brusque and it felt like he wasn't listening. It was a little frustrating, as I had spent a long time with a great many doctors before finally getting an appointment. However, this is due to a cautious and conservative approach that ultimately has resulted in an actual diagnosis and treatment which is *working*. Dr. Argoff is brilliant and I feel extremely comfortable with him and confident in his treatment.
in Amsterdam, NY |
Dr. Argoff was uncaring, rude and abrupt with me. I left his office in tears! I was seeing a fellow neurologist at AMC who recommended I see Dr. Argoff for my ongoing migraines and TMJ pain. He told me I can only see ONE neurologist at a time, that he had no record of my doctor requesting he see me (although my insurance does not require that). He basically said I will NOT treat you...and sent me on my way. I have spoken to nurses at AMC who agreed he is rude and arrogant.

He is very compassionate to your problems and needs. Listens attentively and will work diligently to find the problem.
Only one who could figure out how to control pain after doctors at major hospitals gave up. We travel several hours for each visit to see him.
Best doc. I have been too helped me right away and seems to care abouthe people he treats

First doctor that actually knew what was wrong with me and did something to help. I have been dealing with headaches for over 7 years before

My Daughter has a genetic connective tissue disorder that causes terrible pain. Dr. Argoff refused to treat her when it is standard of care to address chronic pain. Because of bleeding concerns associated with the disorder, the only OTC pain relief is from Tylenol. He recommended PT for 3 months before he would see her. With a dislocated knee from a connective tissue disorder how does he think she can do physical therapy with only Tylenol for pain relief? Albany Med should be ashamed!
Very thorough, listened without judging, very friendly and informative
