Don’t plan on seeing him when you go to your appointment but plan on paying your co-pay for his nurse to ask you how you are and tell you “make another appointment for *insert number* weeks” and then repeat. This office is a joke and just wants your money for literally not working.

My mother had a stroke. Our first neurologist in the hospital was not very active in trying to research and identify the root cause. So we requested a second opinion. Dr Hidalgo talked to and with my mom. Looked over notes and charts multiple times while with us. Worked with the family on suggestions and concerns and went the extra mile to diagnose and treat her.

He was great but the office staff leaves a lot to be desired . He needs to observe them from a patients viewpoint

If I could give him 0 stars I would. Dr. Himself is rude point blank and does not listen to his patients. To make a long story short he misdiagnosed me for 10 years and tried to rush me into brain surgery without doing any test first. When I insisted on test is when he realized he had misdiagnosed me and no surgery was needed. Now I am trying to see a new Dr and my medical records for the last 10 years have disappeared when requested by new Dr. Stay away from this Dr!

Awesome bedside manner, easy to talk with, had a clear understanding of everything going on, and why, great staff, from the nurse practitioners to the receptionist. Would definitely recommend to my family and friends

The office staff was fine. The wait time is longer than expected once you get in a room. Dr. Hidalgo’s responses are quick and short. It’s hard to understand everything he’s saying already and him rushing doesn’t help. His nurse practitioner seems uncaring and unfriendly. Paper work is slow to be filled out. Personally, I would not recommend them. It’s sad because neurologist’s are very limited in this area.

He takes care of my mother for many years. He is very busy, but he is always available when we need him.

Dr. Hodalgo has been treating me for 13 yrs. He takes time with you when he sees you and explains everything to you. He answers any questions you may have, I would recommend Dr. Hidalgo to any body that needs a good neurologist.

This clinic has a long wait time to get in. When at your appointment, you get to a room fairly quickly and the wait inside the room is about average. The dr. Seemed impatient, unwilling to listen, and uncaring. Fairly blunt and unsympathetic.

Dr. Hidalgo took care of my sister in law, after we saw several different neurologists out of town. He immediately made the right diagnosis and treated her accordingly. He is very busy, but he still took his time and was very compassionate with us.

Far too busy to talk to. I felt like he was condescending and had a lousy Dr. - patient attitude.
