Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Podwall "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 an MRI is needed, I often can arrange for it to be done the same day. All tests results will be called personally by me to the patient with results being faxed to their referring physicians. My patients know that I am available when needed."

I have the utmost respect and confidence in Dr. Podwall! He has taken care of my family and I for years across a number of issues. He provides high quality care and always goes above above and beyond to provide comfort and answer all of your questions. I highly recommend Dr. Podwall.

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.
