During my pregnancy I had trouble finding a Neurologist I could trust to make safe treatment decisions for both baby and I. Luckily, I found Dr. Nikolskaya who is very knowledgeable and has the best bedside manner. She always follows up and stands up for me when it comes to referrals. If you want a Dr that is on top of her cases I highly recommend her. Thank you Dr Galina Nikolskaya for being so kind and taking care of me!
