1 visit med student present. Dr. is excitable personality. Asked a lot of questions but not about history of diabetes or factor in PTSD issues recently experienced which deterred from proper diagnostics in my opinion. Waited 2 mos. to see Dr. by that time already figured I don't have a brain tumor, allergy meds & oxygen therapy helps chronic migraines which the Dr. wasn't even aware of this treatment. Prefers to recommend surgery for chroinic neck/disk rather than responsible pain mgmt w meds.

Always profesional i highly recommend this Doctor

If you are on pain meds or have chronic pain he won't treat you for migraine. Told me not to come back. Wish he looked at my list of documented medical problems before I waited months to see him.
