Patient Comments (11)

The doctor is good for the most part. His PA on the other hand has a very condescending tone. I don't know how many people come into their office trying to lie their way to a diagnosis but the PA was very interrogative throughout my time spent here. I'm sure some people abuse the system but for...more

Thank you for the informative review. Your comments are unexpected, as most of our patients really like our PA, who has been with us for many years. I am sorry that was not your personal experience. I don't know who you are, nor do I know what went on in the exam room, but I am sorry that you feel that way. If I can help you in any way, please call me directly. I wish you the best of health. Sincerely, Edy Rudnick, Practice Manager

Dr Pineless approaches medicine from a patient-focused approach. He and the staff at Neurocare Institute of Central Florida are very thorough and timely. He spends time with patients to fully understand their medical concerns and how they affect the lives of his patient and their family.

When I was a patient I had a great experience. I then lost my insurance (as well as my job). I told the staff this information but they still tried to charge me for the remaining money that the insurance did not cover. At this time I was a patient for quite some time. I wound up being kicked out of...more

I am sorry to hear that you lost your health insurance. We live in difficult times for healthcare, including high premiums and deductibles. It is written into insurance contracts that we must bill the patient for their portion of the cost. I don't know who you are, if you tried to call our office to work out a payment plan, or perhaps you ignored our correspondence. I DO know that you didn't reach out to me with your concerns. I wish you had. Best of health to you. Edy Rudnick, Practice Manager
