      I've been treated by Dr. Kwasnica for over 10 years. Under her care I have gone from a person who couldn't hold a full-time job to working full time the last 2 years. Her approach to treating my migraine headaches was unlike any neurologist had ever tried with me and it has been working! I keep a "headache diary" and she is quick to spot patterns in it and determine whether I need a change in my medication or not. She is also interested in me as a person-not just a number.

      Dr. Kwasnica is the worst Doctor in town. Let's start by stating that a Physiatrist doesn't do anything. I've never heard of that. It's not like she's saving lives (I.e. surgeon, cardiologist). I've met her a couple of times and she let's her emotions get the best of her in her line of profession. Since I've last seen her she's had so many office staff leave in the last 3 to 4 years. Her office retention rate speaks poorly about her. I would not recommend her to anyone!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
