Dr Mechtler is the most arrogant, condescending, and degrading doctor I have ever met. He does not answer questions or explain anything. He would not let me see my images or ask questions, instead he threw several prescriptions at me instead of getting to the root of the issue. Also Dent lost all my records and images so Dr Levy could not answer any of my questions either. This man is so rude, arrogant, and incompetent, he should not be practicing.

As I live in Rochester N.Y.,an hour plus from RPCI, indicates my reliance on RPCI to care for my past cancer problem,and is my reason for continuing to make the occasional trip to RPCI and to see Dr Metchler.

Dr.Metchler is an excellent neurologist, having seen several other Neurologists I know an excellent one when I find him. Dr.Metchler is intelligent,friendly, kind, and he wants you to get better. I had migraines that were destroying me and after listening to me he explained why I had odd symptoms and how the the cycle of almost daily migraines could be stopped with medications. He gave me my life back. His PA Arika is wonderful and so is the rest of his staff.

I was referred to Dr Mechtler by another Neurologist, after being under his care for numerous year and frustration with lack of progress regarding my medical history. Dr. Mechtler changed my daily medication, introduced me into infusion therapy for my intense migraines to break the cycle. And when medication is not working, changes the medication until finding the right formula for relief. Spends time with me and my family, and I never feel rushed.

It is clear that many of his patients not only felt demeaned but where treated poorly. Laslo’s arrogance was the reason some voluntarily departed from his care. Others who advocated for themselves where told they should go elsewhere. And if you were someone who challenged him, you were unilaterally terminated from the entire Dent practice. A tyrant has no place in medicine let alone the head of a specialty medical practice that dominates a region.

If you disagree with him or challenge him, he will eliminate you from Dent”s practice. A tyrant has no place in medicine let alone the head of a specialty medical practice. To warrant eliminating complete access to an entire medical organization, a grave deed must have been done? For if not, such action speaks only to his utter disregard for the Hippocratic oath and the poor patients he swore to serve. I wish him as well as he have served,

I had great expectations going in to see this doctor, as he is supposed to be the best neurologist in western New York. Both of my appointments, I have been left in tiny rooms, examined by students, then lectured by Dr Mechtler about how I’ve reached the end of the road for treatment of my migraines, like it is my fault or something. He is pompous and not helpful. I dread my appointments with him. Oh and all other appointments are with his NP.

Dr. Metchtler has been my neurologist for over 20 years. He is the best! I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with neurological problems. He is well educated,has an amazing way of relating to me as his patient, always down to earth and wiling to help me. I am thankful for him. Despite his awesomeness, his reception area and office manager is less than kind. I have encountered a few rude receptionists and the manager is not patient friendly. But he is wonderful.

I saw Dr. Mechtler as a referral from one of my doctors who spotted a brain tumor as a result of an MRI being taken for transcranial magnetic stimulation. He saw me within 24 hours of having the MRI, explained to me what type of tumor it was - a menengioma, that he was 95% sure it was most likely benign, and that it had to be surgically removed to prevent further growth. He personally called the best surgeon for this procedure and had asked him to see me the next day.
