Dr. Ironside diagnosed me with Myasthenia Gravis as a teenager. He was very thorough, professional and kind - especially to a teenage girl who was very scared. He is a very knowledgeable doctor- especially when it comes to Myasthenia Gravis.

I would definitely recommend Dr Ironside. He is prompt and doesnt make you wait. He is very open to trying different things to see if they work for you.

Amazing doctor and staff. Very straightforward and very informative. Also extremely caring as far as communication if you are having problems with a medication, especially if you're not close by. Definitely feel taken care of and not ignored.

After reading the previous reviews I did not want to see this doctor. I did have to arrive super early and of course there was a deposit outside of the financial and time aspect which I could expect from any doctor it was great. Dr ironside was nothing like described in the review. This guy was awesome, welcoming and informative. His staff was great too. Lucky me as he said "we'll be seeing alot of each other until we get to the bottom of this"..

I would not recommend him to anyone. All he's concerned about is getting you out of his office. I've never had such an experience with a doctor as I've had with him. Such a jerk!

If you want your Specialist to have more compassion than that of a wart hog, you'll need to look elsewhere. Otherwise, he's a good enough Neurologist.

I went to Dr. Ironside for about 5 years. In that time, he bullied me whenever possible. As long as I told him what he wanted to hear he was nice enough. If I told him something that didn't go along with his world view (I never knew what that was until after I said it.), he stopped meeting my eyes. He let me know in no uncertain terms that whatever was wrong with me had nothing to do with my diagnosed condition. I didn't realize how badly he treated me until I went to another neurologist.

My dad saw him in August. Was sent for a couple of test. After waiting a few weeks without hearing from him or his office regarding the results I called his office. I was told the reason we were not called with results was because the results were normal and the doctor would discuss it at our three month follow up. I reminded the nurse no one set us up for an appointment. When we went for our three month follow up Dr Ironside had not seen the test results yet

He did only what was absolutely necessary. I felt like I was a burden to him.
