    This man is not only a terrible "doctor", but a horrible human being in general. Stay away from this guy. If you have been referred to him...DO NOT go and see this person. We had just re-located to Roseville and I was sent to him by my GP for my epilepsy. He was 45 minutes late. His staff was about as rude as it gets. Once I finally saw him...'You have Epilepsy'. When I asked about some memory issues...'yeah, it happens, get over it'. And told us to get out because he was busy.

    Dr Stoody indicated that it was useless for me to study my neurological challenges on the internet because I am not a neurologist. When asked about a treatment for my condition that had been successfully studied at the Cleveland Clinic, he stated that he hadn't heard of the treatment and "there is nothing that will help your condition." I left the office in tears.

    This neurologist is terrible!!! Choose anybody else. He's not concerned for the actual well being of the patient, just that his job is easier. He refused to complete a form that would help give me time to care for my father who has Alzheimer's. My mother takes care of him currently, but she is sick now too, which just leaves me. Thanks to this jerk, nobody watches my father while my mother is bedridden. They can't afford a live-in care taker and shouldn't need to, since they have me. BAD DOCTOR!

    He looks at the MRI he ordered, to try to diagnose my memory loss... Says there is " shrinkage in the hippocampus " ( which FYI is where alzheimers dementia begins....) And tells me, this doesn't really mean anything because " we are not symmetrical beings". Found new Doctor - UCD MEDICAL- basic cognitive testing got me to the next round- Went to Alzheimers Center and after testing was diagnosed with Early onset Alzheimers . Stay away from this guy who is awkwardly afraid to diagnose.

    My dad recently had two scheduled appts with Dr. Stoody. Both appointments needed to be rescheduled. At my dads initial appointment, Dr. Stoody was completely dismissive and wouldn't let my dad finish answering questions before interrupting him and moving on. The second appointment was to go over test results and was rescheduled for a week later. My das first two appointments were both rescheduled. Would love to find another neurologist. Any one have any recommendations?

    Dont waste your time! 1. He told me to "get that kid out of here, I cant concentrate" on my first appt at which my husband took the time off to attend and my son was simply showing me a picture not crying. 2. He did a EMG had me wait 3 weeks only to say it was normal and to live with it. I then had a seperate doctor look at my test and said shes never seen such a poorly done test. Request a new referral dont be a sucker like me .

    My primary care physician made a referral and I never heard back from the staff for an appointment. Mary, the receptionist was rude, condescending, and refused to let me speak with her supervisor when requested. She even hung up the phone on me. From the doctor's reviews and my initial experience, I will wait to see another neurologist.

    Doctor? I wouldn't call him a doctor this man should not be in business. He offers no help just a diagnosis. No bedside manner, arrogant, dismissive and rude. Its already hard on families to deal with a family member with mental loss then to have a doctor who doesn't care is heart breaking. We are looking for help and guidance. Please don't waste your time with this man because it is honestly a waste of precious time. He should NOT be in practice.
    $200 for 10 minutes? He was dismissive, didn't even read my intake papers that I brought in, and was walking out the door of the exam room while my husband and I were still asking questions. Very condescending. Doctor's like this are the reason I have so little faith in the medical field. If you think you know me by my referral and your monkey test, think again. I won't return to this facility.
    This was an inpatient assessment. He had Poor bedside manner, was arrogant, dismissive and rude. I was not confident in his clinical skills as he didn't even perform a basic cognition status exam on the patient.
