Truly a child neurologist. Goes into minute details with both the kids as well as their parents. Goes out of his way to schedule appointments and responds promptly to emails and messages. Highly recommended for Bay Area families !!

This doctor is incompetent at all levels. - Inability to provide any diagnosis whatsoever when the final diagnosis ended up being neurological in nature. - Ridicules the patient's incapacitated state during the visit instead of providing comfort and compassion during the interrogation of symptoms - Demonstrates sarcasm towards patient's relatives - Does not listen to patient's complaints
