My visit with Dr. Hedges was a very positive experience in so many ways. She is local, so traffic and parking was not a problem. My check in and appointment were both on time and I was greeted by a very pleasant staff (no grumpies here). Dr. Hedges' nurse is a great asset to this team being professional and personable. She also called me when lab results were received. Meeting with Dr. Hedges was a pleasant experience as she too was both professional and personable. She really listened to me and explained her findings in a way that I could understand. I felt totally at ease and not rushed. I look forward to having Dr. Hedges on my medical team. In short, I would highly recommend Dr. Hedges if you are in need of a neurologist's care.

Was referred to Dr. Hedges by my PCP. Office staff was professional and pleasant. Dr. Hedges was sensitive to my concerns and being a first visit she took plenty of time to understand my history. I recommend Dr. Hedges to anyone needing a neurologist.

I appreciate the fact that I never feel rushed when I visit. She takes the time to truly listen and, if necessary, push behind the façade I might present in order to see what is really going on. She is also open to listening to ideas I might have and takes the time to answer any questions.

If you want an office with helpful, courteous, knowledgeable people, use Midwest Neuroscience Institute. My doctor, Kathryn Hedges, MD, always takes the time to listen and talk with me (not at me and not listen). Questions are answered so that I understand them. Treatment is explained and why.
