What People Say About Dr. Majid Fotuhi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Fotuhi came recommended by another Dr as I was experiencing horrible chemo brain after my cancer treatment. I was having trouble finding words and having horrible memory issues. I even had issues reading numbers and just basic sentences. Everything looked like a word search to me. I completed the program at Neurogrow Brain Fitness and my cognitive scores soared compared to what they were when I started. I felt more confident in speaking and my ability to retrieve words to be able to convey my message and I was able to actually dial a number correctly again on the phone and not jumble up words. When I returned almost a year later fir a follow up, my scores were even higher than they were after my completion and I can tell I’m still benefitting from Dr. Fotuhi’s treatment. He has an excellent staff and I highly recommend him and his practice.

When I came to Dr. Fotuhi, I had sustained a terrible concussion from being hit by a drunk driver. Every day tasks had become laborious, if not impossible. Forming full sentences and concentrating on simple tasks were extremely difficult! He and his skilled staff worked with me and brought me back to my laughing, smiling self. I am grateful for their patience, kindness and expertise! You all are AWESOME!!! Love, S.S. in Woodbride Va.

I am a senior and was suffering from memory loss. I took the 24 session memory improvement program and had excellent and very noticeable results. Dr. Fotuhi and all of his staff care delightful. The process is enjoyable but demanding. The coaches push you to the edge of frustration but are always positive. I enjoyed the experience and benefited greatly.

I started treatment with Dr. Fatuhi for memory issues from Chemotherapy. My life has changed dramatically from the treatments I have received! In addition to greatly improved clarity of thoughts and memory, I also have dramatically increased motivation and I am living a much more enjoyable, productive life. The staff always shows a great commitment to the health and well-being of their clients. If you even think you might need help, please contact them!!!

Dr. Fotuhi exemplifies exactly how a doctor should be. He is genuinely caring, intelligent, attentive and will go above and beyond to help improve the lives of his patients. This patient-first attitude is also reflected in his staff. I always feel so welcomed when walking into the office. My medical condition has improved so much that I almost can’t believe all of the positive results. If a friend ever needed to see a specialist in this field, I would definitely recommend them to Dr. Fotuhi.

Dr Fotuhi was excellent. From day one with the initial consultation, he was able to immediately identify areas for myself to improve. Every appointment with Dr. Fotuhi was reassuring and he helped create a unique treatment program that suited me.

My experience thus far with Dr. Fotouhi has been outstanding. Transitioning to a new physician is very stressful to me but Dr. Fotuhi and his staff are a pleasure to interact with. My first meeting with Dr. Fotuhi was different from any other experience I've had with previous physicians. He took his time to get to know me as best he could in a hour consultation, he made me feel comfortable as well as engaged in our conversation. I left with a hopeful feeling and I appreciate that.

Dr. Fotuhi is incredibly knowlegeable, caring, and compassionate. He truly cares about his patients and listens to them. His neurofeedback/brain training program helped my 17 year old son with his focus and attention issues. Dr. Fotuhi and his entire staff are positive and upbeat and make patient care a priority. My son thrived in this program, improving not only his focus and attention but gaining confidence and learning how to manage stress.

Compared to other neurologists, Dr. Fotuhi takes a more thorough approach to assess your neurological concerns and offers treatments specific to your needs that do not necessarily include medications.

Dr. Fotuhi has to be the greatest doctor I have ever received treatment from in my 60 years and I have had a multitude of medical issues. He listens, he uses different techniques; some of which can be tough but he delivers outstanding results. He genuinely takes interest in your entire well being and life. My situation was not pretty and life issues even got worse through my treatment but he was there for me and guided me through it, helped preserve my job. Greatest doctor and team ever! ??

My son who is 15 has done Dr Fatuhi’s Program. He was reluctant at first but then never complained about going. I think he realized it was helping him and he started to really accept it. It is a long program but it has so many benefits. He is more focused in school and at home. He made honor roll this quarter. AND the big thing is that his confidence has gone way up! I highly recommend this doctor and program:)

Dr. Fotuhi is truly invested and devotes his life to his patients and prioritizes their care. He improved my brain function significantly after it experienced severe physical trauma, and always tended to my needs. My brain is on the road to recovery, thanks to him. Outstanding care.

I recently completed a treatment program at Dr. Fotuhi’s practice for post concussive syndrome. He is an expert on brain health and memory. He is also incredibly compassionate and invested in his patients’ success. This is also true of all members of his staff. I made a full recovery under his care. His treatment plan is intense and addressed physical, cognitive, nutritional and psychological needs. I will always be thankful that I was referred to his practice.

Dr. Fotuhi more than merits his tremendous reputation. My daughter suffered five concussions on school playgrounds and in PE. Her pediatrician referred her to Inova Mount Vernon's excellent Concussion Clinic. Given her concussion history and the severity of the most recent concussion, the clinic referred her to Dr. Fotuhi, speaking of him in terms best characterized as reverence and awe. My daughter's successful treatment attests to the tremendous abilities of Dr. Fotuhi and his NeuroGrow team.
