Dr. Kister is an experienced, empathic brilliant neurologist. His ability to assess symptoms and their combined effects on one’s life is impressive and speaks to his knowledge of often vague but profound symptoms as they affect someone’s life.

Dr Kister and his office failed me miserably. He misdiagnosed me with multiple sclerosis in 2011. He refused to do a spinal tap but had no problem treating me with toxic medication. I then begged for a spinal tap. I contacted his office even the office social worker and got no response at all....more
