Inverness, FL |
Worst doctor/patient experience ever! Unprofessional. I was told my neck surgery I had (by a well respected nurosurgeon), was not needed " only for broken neck". I went for an EMG for possible carpel tunnel, after a quick Neuro exam, about 30 seconds, he laughs with his tech. When I demand to know what he's laughing about, he says to his tech " you saw it when she first walked in right?" "you had a stroke!". As an RN I knew I hadn't. Stay away from this "doctor"

Stay away from this doctor!!!!!!unprofessional!!!!!!

I read many (bad) reviews when my GP referred me to Dr Valencia. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia and not all neurologists treat this rare (and very painful) nerve disorder. At my first visit, I was wary, until he jumped up on the table (I was in the chair) and started reviewing my paperwork. He was very knowledgeable and informative. He ordered some more tests based on the first neuro's records. Those results may be lifealtering for me and I understood exactly what he was concerned about. I like him

I have suffered from severe Migraines for years, and I have seen many good Neurologists. I am also a RN. Dr. Valencia gave me very good care. He took me off of medicine that no one else told me was only making my migraines worse. Some of them were actually dangerous for the type of migraines that I have. His manner is very direct, and he does talk fast. This can be off putting, but he does actually care. Very nice office staff too.

Very direct, through & knowledgeable

He is rude! He talks to his patients horribly. Made my mother feel horrible and like she was crazy after waiting for 2 hours. His front desk is rude. He raised his voice and over talked. Never explained a thing. Disgusting doctor and we will not be going back there!

I have been seeing DR V. for several years now. Since I was 18 years old I have suffered with Cluster Headaches. He is the only doctor who has help me. I am 59 years old and have been pain free. A few years ago I had another episode with my headaches and again DR V. knew exactly what to do. You can suffer from clusters sometimes for months, but in few quick visits all was ok again. I also see DR V. for my very bad back (had a construction accident) he has also help me with that. Thanks Doc!

The one star I gave this doctor is being generous. He is by far the worst doctor I have ever been to near The Villages Florida. He kept saying I had a stroke. He scared me into getting MRI's. He said oh yes I had a stroke and needed to go on all kind of medicine. I did not believe him and consulted two other neurologists who said oh my gosh I hope you are not taking the medicines he prescribed. Turns out I am having migraines without headaches. This is easily managed with one daily pill

Worst doctor I ever went to. I sat in the waiting room over 3 hrs in excruciating pain & no one offered any assistance. Almost fell & another patient had to help me up. Finally I went to the window & complained telling them I'll never be back to their office again, only for them to tell me their sorry their under staffed. Finally got in the back where Dr. Valencia laughed & joked & said he sees nothing wrong with me even tho I could barely walk.
in Belleview, FL |
I am very disappointed in Dr. Valencia. I have several neurological disorders, and on my very first appointment he basically called me a pill head. I am on 8 different medications and 5 of them are cardiac medications. I have Spinal Stenosis., DDD (degenerative disk disease), Hydro w/ VP Shunt, Titanium Strip fusing my neck together, Anexity disorder from PTSD, Diabetic, CHD (congestive heart disease), A-Fib, DVT blood clots, and yet I'm a pill head who needs to stop all medications!!!!!
in The Villages, FL |
He was rude, disrespectful and quick to formulate a diagnosis! If a diagnosis of Epilepsy is being based solely on biting ones tongue, then I had 10 epileptic seizures while sitting at my fathers appointment!
in The Villages, FL |
I was hospitalized with blood clots in the lower calf following DBS brain surgery. Dr. Valencia was called in for a neurological consult. He was very critical and chastised me for having dangerous surgery for a non-life threatening condition. I suffer from Cervical Dystonia which has ruined my life. Dr Valencia who said his name was Dr Jones was rude, arrogant and condemning. He criticized my decision having NO INFORMATION about me; my symptoms or my six years of suffering.
Ocala, FL |
Was assigned to my father when he was admitted to emergency. Changed all his meds without consulting his primary or heart doctor. Did not see him for 48 hours, BUT wrote has written on his chart that he had seen him. After two days we still do not have the test results from an MRI. I left my number to call
