What People Say About Dr. Frank Pusey Jr, MD

Dr Pusey was rude condescending and arrogant. What's worse is I took my mother in law there for symptoms of dementia. He promised to phone in a prescription for her. After many unreturned phone calls we had to drive back to the office just to talk to someone. The cold and uncaring staff insisted he would call in the prescription and two days and several phone calls again still no prescription. Amazing how they got so many uncaring people in one office.

After seeing my husband in the hospital and once at his office, he stated he wasn't sure what was going on, treated him as if he had a stroke and bid him farewell without a follow up. We got an appt with another neurologist who is not going to let this go until we know what it is. I feel so bad for patients that aren't persistent enough to find out what is causing their problem!

Dr. Pusey’s office is a nightmare, nobody answers the phone, nobody calls you back. I saw Dr. Pusey for MS and he was not knowledgeable in this area! It was very frustrating, I would not recommend him at all!

I only saw Dr. Pusey once so I'm not sure if he is a good doctor are not. He wasn't warm or reassuring that he could find out the cause of my diabilating neurological symptoms but he said he would try. Ok that's all I can ask. My biggest problem was his staff who was suppose to schedule the tests he ordered. I called them twice a week for a solid month & no one ever returned a single call & never ordered the appropriate tests! Would you want this to be your Neurologist?

Dr Pusey has an excellent bedside manner, he made my husband and I feel very comfortable, my husband is still under his care, although, based on his last round of tests, the problem has been effectively treated, he is no longer experiencing symptoms, and the area has been cleared up entirely. Based on Robby's experience, I have decided to switch from my current neurologist to Dr Pusey as well.

I have a motto for Dr. Pusey, "His way or the highway!" He doesn't listen to concerns or issues that my family had about a medication he prescribed my dad. The medication sent my dad to the emergency room, Dr. P continued to give my dad the medication that sent him to the emergency room! Finally after pulling teeth to get Dr. P to change the medication he did and he told my mom that he didn't think the new med would work! My dad is doing much better! Finding another neurologist!

My mom went to Dr. Pusey to help with her short-term memory loss and frequent loss of balance. He prescribed a medication that greatly improved her memory loss.
