Dr. Xian has been my neurologist for three years now and I would highly recommend him. He is very professional and courteous, and he is incredibly knowledgeable. I definitely put my faith in him when it comes to treating my migraines!

I love Dr. Xian, he takes the time to talk to you and explain procedures and results. When I went to him in 2011 asking for a baseline MRI for Essential Tremors, I expected to get a hard time, but he was very understanding and cooperative. In 2017 he saved my life by suggesting another MRI since the 2011 was so long ago. By doing this he discovered an brain aneurysm which I was able to get treatment for and now has disapeared.
in Patchogue, NY |
Dr. X is extremely rude, dismissive, and has no compassion. His botox treatment was not successful for me, so he became angry and said "you have brain damage that's why it's not helping, get a new MRI" I haven't had another tumor in 20 years but it's the only answer he had. Horrible to make a patient feel this way, to scare me, and leave me feeling hopeless because his ego was brought down. Nobody deserves that. He needs to learn bedside manner, compassion and professionalism.
