Dr. Fesenmeier is helping me figure out what's going on with my headaches. I have many symptoms and I am confused and afraid. He has explained things thoroughly to me every time and takes the time to answer all my questions. He called me personally with my MRI results. I've never had a doctor do that before. I am looking forward to going back to see him again. He is very personable and helpful and I highly recommend.

I was in need of a Neurologist that specialized in the treatment of Dystonia, which isn't very common. I contacted Dr. Allison Brashear at Wake Forest University, who referred me to Dr.Fresenmeir. I can't say enough great things about him! I'm a RN so I Know good from GREAT, and he's great. Attention to detail, extra time when needed, listens to your needs, no "cookie cutter" treatment, forward thinking , always pleasant/compassionate/cares. The staff is very responsive to your calls/kind.
