Care Philosophy

We diagnose and treat neurological symptoms, such as headache, double vision, neuropathy, black out, numbness, pain, loss of balance, memory loss, dizziness, carpal tunnel, seizure, stroke, Parkinson, multiple sclerosis, pinched nerve, and tremor. We also conduct an advanced diagnostic test called EMG (electromyography). MEG is used to find the nerve or muscle that causes the neurological symptoms, such as pain, numbness and weakness.

Worse office i ever been, she couldn't speak English and the reports were confusing...She did wrong diagnosis and confused my PT's and OT's. They want your last penny and insurance money there is no care for you as a patient in this office....Thank god I found some good physician that I can work with and understand what he is talking about and her staff not being rude and send your bill like they suppose to and after insurance approve it.... Their office charge you and insurance....

I don't recommend this Dr and her office to anyone.When I went to her office for my hand and neck issue her diagnostic was completely wrong and confused the PT and OT that i went to and when she explained to me what her founding was I couldn't understand her English.her husband is her office accountant and he is charging extra money every time and when patients explained to their office that their insurance will be paying this he gets upset and want to charge patient ahead of times.

Dr maa is good but receptionist is liar i went in February she told i have deductible to pay that is due once a year so i paid with my copay then i went back in March she asked again for ded. I told we already paid in February but she's like no we didn't then i want to meet dr but she said we can't see her without paying then how come she let me see dr. In February without paying deductible and now we can't even go in it was so frustrating and hard to pay 50 bucks again. She didn't admit mistak

She was very professional, yet I felt like she cared about my experience with what she was doing to me. I was so worried about my procedure, but she made me comfortable, and all went very well.

Dr. Ma takes detailed notes, and made me feel that she really cared about getting to the root of an issue, and then offering the best solution for it. My primary doctor at the time is who referred me to Dr. Ma, and my current primary doctor highly recommends her. I trust Dr. Ma and am very grateful to have been referred to her.
