I have been seeing Dr. Minhas for approximately ten years. He is the first and only neurologist to listen attentively and to explain thoroughly how changes in medication might help me. When appropriate, he has ordered tested and reviewed the results with me, answering any questions I have had. I have had other neurologists flatly tell me that if I was not willing to continue on medications which caused cognitive difficulties and eye pain, they would not be willing to work with me. I used to suffer from migraines multiple days per month, sometimes several days out of each week. With Dr. Minhas' help, I now have migraines only periodically and they are far less severe and of shorter duration. I am grateful for his care, and have referred others to him.

I went there to get test resaults, He did not even read the full test result report. Then he Told me they were all normal, when I questioned him he went back and skimmed over them again only to say oh I guess there are some small issues on one, you have neuropathy. When I ask about my other test and my facial numbness he said it was normal and he had no clue as to the cause. When I asked if it could be from the Biologics I was on he said IDK how do you spell it , he then googled it and said no. He then asked if I wanted another appointment or if I had any questions. When I left I asked for a copy of the test resaults and if he had bothered to read them completely he would seen that it was written right out in the report that the neuropathy was most likely due to long term use of immunosuppressive therapy. If I could have gave a negitive number of stars I would have.
