She definitely doesn't like me. She called me a liar after one visit and refused to even consider treating any neurological symptoms other than migraines. maybe I caught her on a bad day or maybe she only likes certain people.

I have been a migraine patient since I was around the age of 6. I have tried all therapies. The Botox has made a difference. She listens and adjusts the sites as needed. I am a RN and I do not believe in treating migraines with narcotics. It is proven that this does not work for long time management. I am happy to find a physician that supports this.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Vanderkolk! She is AMAZING!! (and so is her nurse at Lenox Village location). She takes the time to listen and explain everything. She is the sweetest doctor I have ever had. She is patient and I never feel like she is rushed or annoyed because of the questions I am asking.
