Springfield, MA |
I have been with Dr. Athreya for several years. She treats my migraines and monitors a residual meningioma. Dr. A is very competent, patient, listens carefully to what my concerns are and works with me to remedy the situation. She has remained on top of my situation always working to ensure that I am pain free. Dr. A. takes whatever time I need, making me feel at ease and I'm always left confident my good health is her primary concern. I would highly recommend Dr. Athreya to family and friends.

I see her for chronic migraines. When I called the office to make an appointment the staff was great and friendly. I thought I'm going to really like her because the staff was so friend.y and great. I was wrong. My previous neurologist had passed away, and I needed a neurologist to give me my Botox. I found her to be very cold, she keeps contradicting herself. Not impressed!

1st time with neurologist ever. Met her told her my health issues she tells me its a common many people have it and have normal lives so she puts me on antidepressants and that I am just having trouble coping with life. Second visit after reviewing the information she wrote down in her laptop see looks at me and says without me saying anything that I must be in alot of pain based on all my health issues when 1 month prior treated me like I was wasting her time. More pills nothing of actual help.

Dr. Athreya is wonderful. However, I have left two messages in the past two weeks and no one has called me back. Obviously I have a neurological problem and it's regarding my medication. Why do they not think it's important when dealing with neurological medication.. Going on week three still waiting going to call again today......

Doctor Athreya listens, and considers the whole patient. Her concern for her patients is obvious, and she appears to be up-to-date. She is also conservative to her approach, and willing to try things other than pill popping, in an effort to assist patients have as good a quality of life as is possible.
