I would not recommend this Dr for migraines. My experience was not a good one. She did not listen to my symptoms or my concerns. She is more interested in pushing medicine on you then looking for the solution. She put me on too much medication and now my body is currently in a state of withdrawal trying to come off. She also does not return phone calls over the weekend while she is on call.

Dr. Kuruvilla was very compassionate and spent a lot of time with me during our visit. She answered all my questions and highlighted a treatment plan I was comfortable with. I have referred my cousins to her who also suffer from headaches. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

She Thinks out loud which I found was a scary experience for me. I was not confident in her diagnosis. I also had a negative experience with her diagnosis and course of treatment for the diagnosis. I felt that she wiped her hand clean of me when she referred me to a different specialist.
