Dr. Ginocchio is thorough and engaging. Very efficient and takes all the time you need to figure out issues and results.

I would give him a 0 if you'd let me. Went in on a referral, I was suffering from functioning blackouts at work, his big and only idea was that I was being drugged, I have epilepsy, you think he would've dug a little deeper? I'm not being drugged, by the way, a caring human is trying to pin point the issue. Went in his office to pay my copay, he doesn't take cash, I can't drive, I was IN his office. I paid cash one floor down, same hospital. Why would He make these rules?

Dr. G was recommended by a close friend who also has Dystonia. I would 110% recommend him to anyone with Dystonia. He LISTENS and asks questions and also will not do anything that you do not want him to do. He recommends treatment that is suitable for your needs and works WITH you, not against you. I have been seeing him for Botox injections for my Dystonia and the treatment has helped me so much. I feel like a have a piece of my life back.

Dr Ginocchio diagnosed me correctly, and although the wait time was longer than I would have liked to schedule to see him, it was worth it. Follow up with his office constantly and tell him what you need, and it'll be good.

Dr G and his partner refuse to follow up with patients seen at the hospital where THEY practice. They treat you while in the hospital then just send you into oblivion.....no other doctors want to pick up where another doctor has left off....i.e. testing done at the hospital, plans of care etc all go out the window once you are discharged from the hospital. This is abandonment and the fact that they don't care, slays me. Hopefully Kharma sneaks up on them.......
Dr. Ginocchio has been treating me for Dystonia since 2008. He listens & explains things well. I've recommended him to many friends and family members.
in Beaverton, OR |
Dr. Ginocchio has been my neurologist for 13 years and I have never had anything but a pleasant experience with his office. He is a wonderful doctor who definitely takes the time to make sure all your questions are answered and makes sure that you understand everything about your neurological health. I hope that he never retires! ??
