About Me

Care Philosophy

My approach starts with listening to patients, asking questions and doing a careful neurological examination. I spend a minimum of 40 minutes with a new patient, never double booking, so I can give my patients my complete attention. If a test such as...

Yesterday I accompanied my parents who are patients of Dr. Podwall to an office visit. What I observed is a doctor who is a most caring and concerned person, and, most importantly, extremely competent. I will not go into any further details other than to say I highly recommend Dr. Podwall and appreciate what he has done and is doing for my parents.

Dr. Podwall does everything the way it should be done. His "bedside manner" is consistently pleasant. His examinations right to the point. His explanations of what will be included in the exam, as well as the results, are delivered with clarity and a confident voice. He gave a balanced view of my situation, recommending a careful path to further review, without medication or surgery. The office is that is very busy. Be prepared to fill out many forms. Go at 1pm to avoid delays.

SCHEDULING IS FANTASTIC. WE ALMOST NEVER HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE DR. PODWALL.. GOOD LISTENER AND HE TAKES HIS TIME WITH ME. THIS GROUP OF DOCTORS HAVE IN SITE OFFICES FOR MRI AND OTHER TESTS. HOWEVER THE BEST THING THEY HAVE IS THE PHYSICAL THERAPY OFFICE. I HAD PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH PHYSICAL THERAPY. I WOULD GET MAYBE 25 MINUTES AND THEY WILL CHARGE MY INSURANCE FOR ONE HOUR. HERE AT NEUROLOGICAL ASSOC. I GET THE FULL HOUR HELP AND PERSONAL TREATMENT. EXCELLENT PEOPLE.
