She spends the time with to listen and examine, works with you on what meds, doses and frequency of doses you need. She delivers treatment according to the patients needs, not the disease or text book.

Highly recommend this neurologist....she is kind, knowledgeable and competent. She treats my mother for Parkinsons disease and has always been very thorough and takes the time to really examine her and make any appropriate adjustments to her plan as needed. In addition, she is very personable.
