All I can say is this Dr. IS AMAZING !!!!!! He helped my father with a treatment that truly was a game changer for the better back in Aug./Sept. 2019. Yes we had to wait a month ,but it was worth EVERY SECOND of the pain staking wait. ! Theres a reason he's in such demand ;he really IS , THEE BEST! We miss you so much since having left Philadelphia and moving on . But we wish you nothing but the very best! I'll be reaching out one day, just to say hello and ask you for a referral ,someone around here that you'd personally recommend, so as to once again receive such optimal and excellent care!

I had a really bad experience trying to make an appointment to see this doctor! Firstly, I had to wait for more than an hour, then they don’t want to attend you unless you provide them all your personal information just to know that this doctor does not accept párkinson disease new patients! Why are you asking all my personal information if you do not have any available until next year plus you do not attend párkinson disease patient! What a waste of time! I am furious and so disappointed! You should be very honest since the beginning! No right!

One of the sweetest and helpful Doctors. My 1et meeting he spent over an hour with my wife and I. He helped us understand a possible neurological issue I'm dealing with and made himself available to us through email and phone.

I have been going to Dr. Rakocevic for over ten years now and he is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. He listens to what you're dealing with and will work with you to find the best solution to your issue. He is truly a caring human being and I would not see any other neurologists in the area. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Rakocevic spent about an hour and a half with my husband and me during our first visit. He never made us feel rushed, and he was so compassionate and caring. My husband's neuropathy is getting worse, and Dr. Rakocevic was encouraging in that he made us feel that he will do whatever he can to help.

I just had the pleasure of spending three and a half hours with Dr. Rakocevic. He never rushed me, answered all of my questions, and provided me with a wealth of information.  He feels I have PLS Primary lateral sclerosis, one of the rarer forms of this disease.  I feel blessed, as this form of the disease will allow me (God willing) to be able to spend more time enjoying my grandchildren.  He also set me up with an appointment with the Jefferson Weinberg ALS center. Great personality!
