What People Say About Dr. Dreama Brar, MD

I saw Dr. Brar for some tremors and movement disorders that I was having. Her diagnosis was that it was mental & I was having anxiety issues. She recommended I see a psychiatrist. I have since seen three other neurologists & that all had the same conclusion, which is that I have Parkinson's disease. I was having classic PD symptoms, but she thought it was all in my head???

Dr. Brar is very easy to talk to. She really listens to your problems and helps you with each one. She and her staff quickly return my calls and help me when I need it. I am so grateful for all of them.

My first (and only) appointment with Dr. Brar was a disaster! She caught me totally by surprise. I was contemplating a caring person. She was impatient and condescending. It was the worst doctor's appointment I've ever had! I went to her to resolve my headaches, not to cause another! I will not be a returning patient!

Dr Brar does not have a warm bed side manner. She seems uninterested and aloof. I feel like she doesn't listen because she's already determined the treatment she will prescribe. It doesn't matter if that course of action of failed in the past, she's going to push her own agenda. I started to wonder if she was getting a kick back somehow. I'm not comfortable with her as my neurologist but it's hard to find a specialist.

Dr. Brar, unlike so many doctors today, takes time with you as her patient. She listens and actually hears what you're saying. Its a small practice and the staff is good and phone calls ARE returned!!!

Only problem experienced was with a new prescription that was not sent to my Pharmacy. After a week of not hearing anything, had to call Dr. Brar's office and request that my prescription be called in. Was told that there was a system problem with faxes being received at Pharmacies sent by Escripts?

Great provider that helps you understand what is the best benefit for you. I am grateful that she is my neurologist that deal with my migraines. The office staff mixed up my days and scheduled me for a day that was not her botox injection day and she didn't make me wait for another day. She gave me my injections and did not get annoyed about it or anything. This is such a great provider and her nurse is amazing as well. If you are looking for someone to treat you right this is her.

Dr. Brar is very nice and soft spoken. I think that is a very nice quality to have especially dealing with patients with neurological problems. She asks plenty of questions to help her understand what is going on with the patient and if and how they are progressing or declining.

Dr. Brar and the staff are always courteous and sympathetic to my needs whether I am in the office or on the telephone. I am given explanations for medical conditions, the options I have, and given alternatives for medications: synthetic and natural. Plus, advice seeking my PCP for further health concerns and medical treatment. Thank you Dr. Brar and staff for making my visits headache free.

Dr. Brar's bedside manner is the worst I have ever seen. She interrupted me before I finished my history, told me she didn't know what is wrong and said that I "could get a brain MRI," When I asked what she recommended, she repeated "you can get an MRI and if that's normal, get an EMG to check for nerve damage". Then she did a quick exam (the only reflexes she checked were at my knees) and asked to see me walk down the hall. Halfway down the hall, she said, "now turn right and you can check out

I was greeted with professionalism and a firm hand shake; she showed compassion for my concern as it relates to my health. She listen and responded to my concerns with a open mind and made me feel relaxed and relieved when if left the office. I will recommend Dr. Brar to anyone.

Very standoffish. Not willing to listen to patient complaints, had already made up her mind basically before even seeing me. No compassion or empathy.
