The staff at the office is great, and she is a helpful, delightful doctor. She is kind, informed, and explains clearly. She is also proactive-- I transferred from her to another doctor who was a specialist in epilepsy. He eventually said he could do no more for me and I should stick to sub-par Then I returned to her and she immediately proposed next steps and had tons of ideas, and quickly got me a appointment with a hard to schedule specialist for a test. She is proactive and motivating!

I have a complex seizure disorder. Dr. Engel has been my neurologist for 8-9 years. She is amazing, compassionate, brilliant, she listens, asks questions, offers great advice and gives you excellent care. Her staff is wonderful and her appointments run on time. You are in safe hands and can thoroughly trust this doctor.

Where has dr engle been all my life? Ive had a lifetime of severe headaches and have been repeatedly blown off by so many other doctors. She reassured me it is not all in my head and that there really is a diagnosis for my pain. She prescribed me a oral pill and it WAS the right pill-my pain went from a 9/10 to a bearable 2/10. My life is now totally livable thanks to dr engle. I totaly recommend her especially if you are hopeless as i was. Thank you dr engle so much.

dr engel really helped me with my migraines...i have had them for 20 years. she was so kind, patient, smart and took her time with me & answered all of the questions that i had. she knew right away what type of migraines i've had and perscribed a medicine that has helped me 95% after only 2 visits! if you are looking for a neurologist that is up on all of the latest treatment options, cut to the chase & see the best as i am so glad that i did!

Did not give me accurate information about medication side effects. Nursing staff rude and impatient. Their office seems arrogant and disinterested in keeping me as a loyal patient.
