I took my 90 year old mother to see Dr. Jothen for which an MRI was ordered. My experience after the MRI though was shocking. Dr. Jothen never directly spoke to me or my mother. She had her office assit. call me with vague info. and a promise the doctor would call. She did not respond to my calls or email. Finally after 4 days of worrying, Dr. Jothen called and went "off the rails" screaming at me saying she'd been on call and was exhausted and what was my problem? This doc needs time to mature.

I had to change my Neurologist due to insurance reasons and came to see this doctor. What a mistake this was. I had to wait an hour to see her and she spent literally 10 min with me for a new visit. Didn't leave with a good feeling that I was cared for or even felt that this doctor understood my medical problems. Plus gave me a hard time in getting my medications refilled that I have been taking for 15 years.

Awful Doctor. Do not waste time. 2 visits. Tap side of my neck and said" , you have no problem." Waited over 45 minutes each visit. Have since found out I have a form of Dystonia. It has caused budgling of my spine and oromantibular Dystonia. Asked for further testing and she said you will be Ok. Very painful disorder. Wonder how she passed Med school?

Navy vet with a neuro issue. Tried to get an appointment for 2 months. Appt day I was going to be 2 minutes late so I called to tell the office - Voicemail. I arrived at the address- her name is NOT on the directory. Called 5X- Voicemail. I finally found the office 3 minutes late for my actual appointment. Waited 75 minutes - the Dr walked in, did not even introduce herself and said "I need this room. I have to stay on schedule. You need to leave". So I did (after I paid my copay). Horrible.

She is one of the worst doctors that I have ever seen. I have had a problem for some time that has been getting worse. I had a really tough time getting through to her office then got the run around for awhile. I arrived and ended up waiting almost 90 minutes. I ended up seeing her and she kept cutting me off as I was trying to tell her my problem. Examined me for exactly 25 seconds and said that it was in my head . I went to another neurologist and they figured out that I had serious problem.
