Dr. McVige is an excellent doctor who is very caring and understanding. She spends an adequate amount of time and provides the best treatment to her patients. I would recommend her to anyone that may need a headache/concussion specialist. She took her time during the office visit and came up with a plan that has been very effective. She goes above and beyond!

This Dr is very receptive initially on consult but then you get dumped into the Dents machine of PAs and call backs from nurses if you are luck enough to get a call back. This doctor is nice for about a month and will call you back but then becomes a diva. Her treatment scope is wonderful until she can no longer get further auth through insurance then suffer.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. If you would like to speak with someone regarding your concerns please call us at 716-250-3095.

You will never find a more personal, caring and intelligent individual other than Dr. Jennifer McVige!

Jennifer met the most important criteria of any physician. She asked questions and more importantly, she listened. We had visited a neurologist prior to meeting with her and we were told pretty plainly that the only thing we could do was put my son on medication for the rest of his life. Jennifer laid out several options starting with therapy. I was impressed with how incredibly knowledgeable she was and I will make sure to return to her for continued care.
