My son has been seeing her for years. Never had an issue with her. She’s very helpful with any questions or concerns I have.

Extreme waste of time speaking with her. Asking her a question is stupid unless what you are asking fits into the 4 answers she knows how to give. For an example, when asked how one of my seizures felt I described it as feeling “heavy, as if my brain was rolling around like a bowling ball” to which she argued with me saying I must mean light headed. An authoritarian sort, and doesn’t listen to children. I’m in high school, and I find when I have questions she treats me with disrespect. No thanks

Awful doctor stay away! Took my son to see her she misdiagnosed him would not listen to any of my concerns. I never write reviews but she was so awful I want to save other parents this nightmare. I have spoken to other parents all over the south shore and they had the same experience she is condescending and awful. Took my son to another nuerologist and he got the right diagnosis please don't waste your time!
