Dr Kofman saw me for an ongoing performance anxiety issue that caused occasional tremors. Very professional, friendly, and would recommend him.

I have been seeing Dr Kofman for a while now and he has greatly helped me with my nerve issues in my feet. His staff is always professional and great to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs to see a neurologist. Also they have a great new office.

I would like to provide the other review with validity by stating that I, too, was dismissed by Dr. Kofman due to my anxiety. Despite the fact that I was (and am) suffering from incapacitating pain and tingling in my extremities, I was dismissed after the results of my non-contrast cervical MRI came back normal. Let me not negate the fact that Dr Kofman, himself, stated that my MRI results did not correlate with my symptoms I was having. He then suggested I go see a therapist.

Dr. Kofman decided nothing was wrong before seeing me, I assume because I have anxiety (intermittent via brain issue). The abnormalities on my MRI were waved off, despite the serious symptoms I listed. He told me to "not bother" with followup MRI ordered by my neurosurgeon. Performed speedy tests like touching toes, then concluded it was all psychological. Follow-up MRI/spinal tap (not with him) revealed distinct cause of my long suffering. Thank God I knew he was horribly inept.
