He is the MOST condescending doctor I've ever had the Displeasure of meeting. Not only that but he ignores about half of everything you tell him. I complained about a medical issue I was having and told him I had not picked up my new medications and he blamed the medical issue on the new medications I wasn't taking.

Palmdale, he certainly is very sure of himself, to a fault. I exp something similar, he was so sure of a meds treatment for my dad regardless of the prior bad reaction he exp with the same meds. Dr insisted it would work well because he is the Neuro and I was just the idiot son who simply could not understand these very complicated issues. Again, he had a bad reaction (affected heart-rate) and never saw Dr Song again. Nice btw, poor rating system, should be able to select ZERO stars, also NA

My husband had Huntington's disease and we suspected my son did also. Dr. Song responded quickly to any and all messages as we were trying to get my husband's medication figured out. In addition, he was more than willing to help me with any and all legal forms needed for nursing home placement and conservatorship. He also agreed to help us get my son tested after his death to see if he had Huntington's disease. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Song while my husband was still alive.

I saw Dr Song years in 2010, with complaints of years of worsening migraines. MRIs suggested MS. He spent most of the appointment speaking with my husband, who was not the patient, and summarily dismissed MS as a diagnosis without further consideration. Three years of progressive symptoms later I was finally diagnosed with MS by another doctor and confirmed with CSF. I was highly unsatisfied with my experience with Dr. Song.
