I have been seeing Dr. Le over a year for both Trigeminal Neuralgia and an aneursym. He is a patient and dedicated medical professional who takes his patients' needs seriously. He was able to quickly diagnose my Trigeminal Neuralgia and put me on medication that has been very successful in treating my condition. I had an MRI and he found two aneurysms. This doctor has saved my life. I have never had an issue scheduling an appointment with him.

I found Dr Le to be patient and thorough in his evaluation of my neuropathy. He carefully explained my condition based on test results and offered possible options for treatment.

I have been seeing Dr. Dean Le for over 4 years, originally for migraines but more recently for my cervical spine/herniated disks issues. He takes the time to listen and offer reasonable solutions and referrals. I trust Dr. Le very much and have gotten excellent results from migraine meds to an excellent pain specialist referral.

He treats family members horribly. Not compassionate when explaining his diagnosis. He seems more interested in the science of medicine than the human aspect of understanding his patients needs.

This Dr is a hack I have never been treated like this by a dr. His staff decides if you can get an appt and if you call them it takes a week to get a response. Also if you can't physically do a test he wants they just say they can't help you, no let's try something else, just good bye, don't waste your time with this so called Dr and his asst Theresa Is rude and thinks she's the Dr.

insisted his diagnosis of stroke was correct (35 yrs old), even with test results proving otherwise (was actually multiple sclerosis). he prescribed a blood thinner after heparin in hospital stays, resulting in the disease crossing the blood-brain barrier, leading to an exacerbation so severe, that treatment with a chemotherapy drug was necessary to put a stop to the increasing disability it was causing. recovery of functionality (walking, motor coordination, the basics, etc.) took a year

I saw Dr. Le yesterday and he may have just saved my life! I have metastasized breast cancer, however, I was seeing Dr. Le about severe arthritis in my neck which was causing tingling on the left side of my face. I gave Dr. Le a CD with MRI pictures and reports of my neck and brain, explaining that my brain was reported as completely normal. Dr. Le felt that the tingling was brain and then proceeded to find a brain tumor in the pictures that was missed by report! He was thorough and kind.

Dr Le is a very knowledgeable competent neurologist but his staff is terrible. Very impersonal and unprofessional. Leave you in a small room for 45 mins after saying the Doctor will be right in. I came out to see why the delay to find out he is not even in the building. They would have left me there for God knows how long. I left and told them to have Dr Le call me when I'm important enough to be a patient. It's really unfortunate because Dr Le is technically a good doctor.
