Absolutely the most arrogant and condescending MD I have ever experienced in my life! I Took my wife to him for diagnostic tests for a progressive neurological disorder. I clearly stated that her mother had ALS. He then lectured me about letting HIM ask the questions . He stated that the symptoms were probably all in her mind. Guess what? Two other neurologists immediately diagnosed her "correctly" with ALS after taking the time to some tests. Draw your own conclusions. Is there a 0 rating

He was nice, professional, and to the point. He was highly qualified to do his job and I will return to him if needed.

I had a horrible second appointment with Dr. Fagan. He came in a mentioned the reason that I was there as though this was the first time that I had seen him for this condition. He also proceeded to tell me that the medicine that he had me taking was for pain only and not for my chief complaint. He was very rude and dismissed my concern for his miscommunication. I would not recommend him to anyone for any reason after this visit. Very dissatisfied!!!!
