Dr. Machado cared about what I was going through and it showed immensely. With compassion he took time with me to listen, evaluate and figure out a plan. I left feeling like I had a new start on treatment for my tremors with confidence going forward. His staff was also phenomenal and there wasn't a question they would not help you get an answer to. Thank you all.

We see Dr. Machado in the Cheshire office. The wait time can be more than 30 minutes. But the trade off is that when he is with you , you are all he's focused on. He answers questions, cares about how my husband is doing, makes consultations for my husband when he sees new areas of concern. He spends time with you, doesn't rush through the visit. His observations of the progression of my husbands condition have been spot on. We have followed him from when he worked at Yale. He is worth the wait.

My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease about 5 yrs. ago. Dr. Machado's knowledge and empathy with his movement disorder is making a positive difference in my husband's emotional and physical well-being. Dr. M. has provided sound and practical advice. He truly LISTENS to you.

We had a similar bad experience with this man. Ordered tests , changed medications that the patient had been on for years and never called back or returned seven phone calls left at office. If it is urgent, see someone else.

Dr Machado correctly diagnosed my hydroencepoly after I was incorrectly diagnosed by a different neurologist as having diabetic neuropathy for which nothing could be done After surgery by Dr Senatis I was able to walk unassisted and stopped urinary incontinence! Thank God my wife located Dr Machado! My family will always be grateful for Dr Machados accurate diagnosis! BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT EVER!

Dr. Machado has great bedside manner and clearly knows his stuff. However, he promises follow ups and agrees to order tests that his incredibly sick patients require to get the medicine they need to have any quality of life, but he fails to follow up or order those tests. He does not call patients back for weeks at a time, ignoring their messages. That has resulted in life threatening outcomes for his patients, which is absolutely deplorable.
