North Haven |
I would never refer anyone to this doctor. I am a doctor's daughter and cannot believe the lack of knowledge and education of Dr. Cretella. She essentially told me my condition did not exist, although it had been confirmed by another neurologist and 3 ENTs. When I told an expert ENT what she said, he was incredulous and said find another neurologist. I will take his advice. She sat and smirked at me during her 'exam'. I think having a diagnosis of depression clouded her view of me. SHAME on her

Dr. Cretella is a wonderful neurologist. She has helped me with my headaches and helped bring my life back to normal! I'm actually taking less medications and have never felt better.

Wonderful headache specialist. Listen to my symptoms and took time to explain everything. She talked to me about each medication. She is very professional and caring. Her staff is quick to get back. Highly, highly recommend her.

She discharged me on the basis of negative testing - MRI and nerve conduction. Totally dismissed a possible dx on our first meeting. 2 years later with a good neurologist- I'm looking a the dx she so easily dismissed. I'm sorry I wasted my time with her.

Dr was very disinterested in me and my problems. Had my treatment, but she would not listen to where the pain was. A few days later i called to say i was still in pain, i was told Dr. followed the recommended procedure, I said it didn't work, the answer was to check back in 2 weeks. Disappointed and in pain I had to go elsewhere and the problem was taken care of in about 30 minutes. The pain was gone. I do not recommend this practice at all
