He is not sympathetic and not caring for his patient. I had you wait two months for the appointment and when it came I cut off my traveling vacation and came to town just to see him, yet when I arrived few minutes late he refused to see me not considering that I left my family behind and booked a ticket just to make it to the appointment. I don't recommend his clinic.

Dr. Fosmire seemed to diagnose me solely based on the recommended diagnosis by the physical therapist I was working with. He prescribed a medication that did not work, when I attempted to make another appointment with him, I was told, He doesn't do follow ups. I explained the medication wasn't working, the nurse called me back with a new prescription. I said I wanted to try something else first because I'd heard about many horrible side effects from that one, he and nurse got upset!!

Dr. Fosmire says...

I have additional training in Nerve Condition Studies and Electromyography testing. Electromyography testing can measure the electrical activity of the muscles. Nerve Conduction Studies can measure the speed and intensity of electrical signals that travel along the nerves. These tests can be very valuable in detecting neuromuscular disorders (nerve and muscle problems.

I also have an extensive background and interest in migraines and currently provide Botox treatment for chronic migraine patients.

Dr. Fosmire says...

I have been a practicing physician in neurology for 20 years. I have a special interest in migraine treatment, management and neuromuscular disorders. Each year I try to stay up on current treatments and research in migraine management. I am an active member with the American Headache Society and attend their annual meetings regularly.
