i would not recommend her to anyone. She is deceitful . She treated my husband over a year & stated everything was ok. which he was. all he had was a little short term memory loss typical for an 80 yr old. At his last appt she gave him a followup for the next year since he was ok. but when we gave her a form to fill out for the DMV. SHE said no problem, she would complete i& mail it. all she did was say my husband had dementia & seizures. His license was revoked causing him depression.

Terrible.... does not listen. She thinks she knows more then she does. I told her I have bad reaction to sleep aides ant yet she prescribed Klonopin. I didn't only sleep walk, but I was woken up by the taist of paint! Yes I walks out to garage, got a can of paint and used a fork to feed myself. I thought she had listened and I ( stupidly) didn't look up so see that Klonopin is a sleep aide. All that to get help for my RLS. VERY DISAPOINTING!

First off, do a search and you will find this doctor is NOT certified in neurology. She is not a neurologist! This doctor is horrible and does not know how to treat a senior trying to deal with an illness. The treatment my dad received was appalling. I have never seen anything like this. As another review stated, walks out when appointment is over, despite giving an upsetting diagnosis. Do yourself a favor and spare yourself the upsetment of dealing with her.

My Dad saw Dr. Kowalczyk after a Jan 2017 stroke. She was flippant, is out of touch with the senior population that she serves, did not spend appropriate time evaluating him, & I do not recommend her! My 89 y/o father suffered from aphasia after his stroke, worked hard to regain his speech & independence. After taking & PASSING an on the road driving test she referred him to take ($$), she did no honor the results. He wasted his time and $$! Why she had him go thru motions is deplorable!!

I have never had a worse experience with a physician. She was arrogant and condescending. Her behavior was deplorable.. It was actually shocking to experience a physician treat a patient so poorly.If you are searching for a Neurologist, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you continue your search.

She took the time to listen to all my concerns and answered all my questions.. I was afraid of switching from Celebration to PSL but I am glad I found her.

Dr K is very knowledgeable and accessible when you have questions or concerns. I have a pretty complex medical history and she did a significant work up leaving nothing out. When I received some bad news she actually gave me a hug!! Her staff is helpful and will try to get me the help or answer if they don't know. Being in the Healthcare field myself it is refreshing to see a provider with a human side that is also bright and knowledgeable-not always seen in tandem in PA-Cs/MDs/Surgeons etc.

She complains a lot...she does not listen to you, and then she tells you that you have nothing wrong with you. She tells me that I have too many complaints. Very disappointing experience. I got the hospital records and she didn't even write things the way I told her. Will not go back there again.

For starters, I did not wait at all. I was called in at exactly the time of my scheduled appointment. Love her!! She listens, she spent lots of time with me. She made me feel that everything I said mattered. She is delightful and very caring. So glad I found her.

I saw Dr Kowalczyk for continued facial pain and spasm after a physical accident and was concerned about nerve damage. Without any testing, I was told I needed to see a psychiatrist and I was imagining the symptoms. When I questioned the validity of her diagnosis, she stated she gathered her diagnosis from records I provided from a previous head injury 2 years prior. I explained this was a recent injury and I only supplied that information as an aid for comparison. She is not very knowledgable.

I was very impressed with Dr. Kowalcyk. She did a thorough review of symptoms, Ordered appropriate tests, explained diagnosis cearly, and ordered appropriate medication. She's very intelligent and has a very down to earth personality. I really liked her and will continue to see her for my neurology needs.

My wife and I are both patients of Dr. Kowalczyk. We were impressed with the way she listened and responded to us. She was competent and cordial in diagnosing our conditions and in recommending treatment.
