Ashland, KY |
Very negative review. I was unprepared for the lack of concern and dismissive attitude from this provider. I've seen three neurologist and this one did not give a thorough exam at all, seemed in a hurry to get out.
Lexington, KY |
This doctor was not just useless, he was unethical. He dismissed my symptoms and insisted they were psychological (I have no history of psychiatry) even after having complied with the suggestion by seeing an Ph.D in psychiatry as well as having counseling and having a three hour eval by the Neuro-cognitive doc in his OWN department, all of whom agreed they were not. He simply did not care. A very sexist attitude I was told my three other physicians I know he was worthless. Spare yourself.
