    Nice doctor, personable and listened to my symptoms. He did a good job explaining my complex symptoms and treatment plan.
    in colorado springs, co |
    Waited 7mos for appt. after doctor referral from MRI. Doctors' comments: I don't know why you are here. Hair loss on 1 leg you rubbed off. When asked to look at MRI said I don't treat MRI's. You're just a guy in pain. Horrible experience.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Excellent experience with Dr. Ales. He demonstrates a high desire to make the patient at ease. He has never been rushed and fields my questions completely. He is frank , yet very personable. Too many times I have left a Dr.'s office and felt that my concerns were not addressed. I hope you never need his services but if you have challenges he can address he would be an exceptional choice.

    I have been to Dr .Ales for my EMG and was extremely impressed with his professionalism, medical knowledge and etiquette. My PCP was beyond impressed with his report. Apparently he had tested multiple muscle and was very thorough. I would recommend him to any one seeking a great neurologist in the springs area. Also his staff were extremely attentive and caring. Best CARE here!
