When I first entered Dr. Fotuhi's clinic, I truly believed that I was suffering from an early case of dementia. I had serious issues with short-term memory, concentration and cognitive abilities that had been on the decline over the years. After being on Dr. Fotuhi's program for only 6 weeks and following his simple recommendations for lifestyle changes, I underwent a massive transformation. My memory and concentration improved significantly and suddenly I felt as sharp as I was in my 20s. He has created an excellent program and I was lucky enough to benefit from it. The staff at the clinic are all very professional and helpful. I recommend Dr. Fotuhi to everyone seeking to improve their memory, concentration and overall brain function.

I love coming here. The staff is amazing and they are so friendly and welcoming. I came here for a concussion recovery and I have noticed a tremendous increase in my neurocognitive skills. I highly recommend NeuroGrow to my friends, family, and anyone who wants to boost their brain. I am a completely different person than when I originally started and love the person I have become. I can’t thank all of the brain coaches, the neurofeedback technicians, the front desk, and Dr. Fotuhi for all of their hard work.

This practice is AMAZING. I came here to seek some help for my 16 year old daughter who has ADHD and anxiety. Before we started at Neurogrow she had some very bad behavior and I we we truly worried what would become of her future. We have just completed the 12-week program and the transformation is remarkable. She is off all of her meds, she cares about school, her grades have improved dramatically, and her future is now very brave. This may sound dramatic, but I honestly believe that Neurogrow may have saved my daughter’s life. (And I say “we” because through this process I realized that I could use some memory help, so we did the program together, and it was awesome.) If you are even considering doing this program, run, don’t walk to the phone and get scheduled ASAP!!!!

I highly recommend Dr Fotuhi and his staff of brain coaches. I found this treatment to be an excellent way to eliminate Symptoms of post concussion syndrome. I went from having trouble regulating emotions, poor short term memory, poor executive function, inability to sleep deeply and constant daily headaches back to my normal state of joyful, motivated, memory working, ability to make decisions and plan, visualize. I am so grateful for everything I have received. If you need hope for brain health and healing, come here. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Fotuhi is an amazing neurologist and I am very happy with everything he has done for me. I am very happy with the results I have received thus far. He really understands the financial stresses a patient might be dealing with which helps lessen the stress. He makes his patient feel like a person and not a number. I really enjoyed my two Brain Coaches, Hamayel and Emily. They were both very amazing to work with. They helped me with improving my scores and helped me feel more like myself. Most importantly, Hamayel and Emily, helped me gain a lot of confidence in myself, which I didn’t have before. I have seen improvement in my sleep, memory, anxiety, and dealing with my emotional heath. I would recommend both friends and family to come here to improve their anxiety, memory, sleep, and any neurocognitive skills they want to improve.

Dr Majif Fotuhi if I could give 5000 stars, it would not be enough to express my appreciation for all you have done for me. In December 2019, I had a Brian injury. For 8 months, I was not able to live a normal life due to my head injury. I experienced confusion and was not able to comprehend things in a normal manner and had high blood pressure that kept me from being able to sleep. Unfortunately, I did not receive proper care from another clinic and was blessed when Dr. Milani referred me to you. You are incredible as I am now beginning to return to a more normal life. You not only have taken great care of my health, but also, you are very pleasant to speak with at every appointment. It’s rare to find a Doctor that combines such personal touches and care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. I am so happy that I was accepted as your patient. You have a great Medical office. It has been a wonderful and warm experience from start to finish.

Neuro Grow is such a great place! It is a great calming environment and NOT stressful. I love the Neurofeedback - it is awesome! You get to watch shows or a movie but at the same time you are working your brain. Also the brain coaches are pretty awesome and the logic games are really fun. I even bought one for myself off Amazon! My brain scores improved greatly. I would definitely recommend Neuro Grow. :)

The staff, the brain coaches, are very helpful and friendly which is particularly important when you are trying to improve on a skill or skills that are worse than what you’d like. As well, if you don’t understand what the purpose of something you do here is then they are always happy to explain.

I walked into this office with multiple concussions, symptoms of attention deficit disorder, anxiety, and feeling scattered. The staff here has supported me in my journey back to and exceeding my brain function. Having the ability to visualize and achieve my goals and ambitions is a priceless thing I thought I’d lost forever. Thank you NeuroGrow, for my life back.

My child not only improved his memory, behavior and impulsivity, he thoroughly enjoyed his sessions here. His words: “fun, interactive, great staff, child friendly and too many good memories here to pick just one.” I have recommended NeuroGrow to friends and neighbors already.

The whole staff is amazing here! They ensure that everything goes smoothly for the patient prior to graduating. They are very patient and so pleasant to deal with!! I will definetly be back in the future and it will be sad not to see the staff every week like before. I had significant improvement from when I initially started. In fact, I had recommended them to my coworker and told her I never felt better in my mood up until now. Everyone noticed my change. I give them a 10/10!

Simply put, Dr Fotuhi and his incredible team changed my life for the better. I was losing my ability to remember, and nearly cried the first time his staff gave me a preliminary cognitive desk because the results were so poor. And today, only six weeks later? I can easily remember a list of 100 random words. Easy!!! I've recommended him to others, and happily recommend him and his staff to you, too.

Today (December 1, 2020) I graduated from NeuroGrow Brain Fitness Center. I was referred to Dr. Fotuhi by my pain management doctor to help me with the burning and painful migraines and lack of sleep from a car accident on February of 2019. I am so delighted to have my brain, sleep and life back. I felt lost for so long and they help me find my way back to a normal, healthy, happier life. Words cannot express how grateful and thankful I am to Dr. Fotuhi and his staff, (Tyler Phaneuf, my brain coach) for helping me heal my brain. I highly recommend NeuroGrow Brain Fitness Center for your cognitive needs. You must do the work though, it’s not magic. But very worth every minute of your time to have the success I have. I give Dr. Fotuhi and his staff 10 Stars and Diamonds!!!

To say that Dr. Fotuhi's program worked for me is an understatement. I suffered a TBI nearly 4.5 years ago. The first two years I was virtually untreated by workers comp. In August 2018, I started working in Dr. Fotuhi's 12 week concussion recovery program. While I didn't reach full cognitive capacity until today, which shows even the best programs do not have a straight-line path to recovery. Hard works pays off. The team at NeuroGrow is outstanding. It is essential to your recovery that you understand that you are part of the team too. When everyone does their job, great results are possible. I strongly support NeuroGrow and have completely endorsed them by recommending family, friends and work colleagues to see him. I can't say enough. Thank you.
