I’m really surprised by all the negative reviews. I found Dr. Gaffney very thorough and professional. I’ve been to a few neurologist and he is by far the best in the area. I liked the whole Memorial Hermann office and would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a good neurologist.

I would give him zero stars. He does not return phone calls. His answering service says he does not respond to his pages. Has no compassion for my mother with dementia. She has had 2 seizures in the last week. We have left 3 messages for him but he will not respond. Do not take anyone you care about to this doctor.

Quack doctor, avoid at all costs. Extremely condescending, smug, rude, incompetent, and will rush you out with a bogus diagnosis in under five minutes. Clearly doesn't care about his patients at all. He should have his medical license taken away.

Dr Gaffney is a fine, knowledgeable gentleman. UNFORTUNATELY his affiliation with Mischer Neurosciences Clinic of Hermann Memorial Hospital System, Houston, Texas hanesss him hamstrung. You NEVER, NEVER get a real person on the phone, even to make an appointment!!! This is an indicator for being understaffed. It is also an indicator for Hermann Memorial support staff for being in control of the infrastructure and support of Gaffney's office. Gaffney's effectiveness is being wasted!! SAD!!!

I met with Dr. Gaffney in early 2012, after I had an experienced of an extreme headache with nausea which resulted in a visit to the ER. many test were done at that time. He had me touch my nose with my finger and a couple of other similar tests. He concluded nothing was wrong with me after 5 minutes and sent me home. I suffered a large ruptured aneurysm last year. I can only conclude that had he pursued my symptoms I would have been treated prior to the rupture.

I found Dr. Gaffney to be an excellent medical provider. I was able to get an appointment quickly, he answered all of my questions in detail but in a way that was easily understood. He provided recommendations for follow-ups with other doctors and even periodically called to check on my progress between appointments. After being treated by several different doctors over the course of many years I can honestly say that his care is the best I have experienced.
