I was so hopeful, and really need help. The provider didn’t show up for my appointment, and I can’t afford to take multiple days off work. I have two young kids at home. Perhaps it’s a great experience if you’re able to obtain treatment.

NeuroGrow is an incredible practice. I was suffering with concussion symptoms for almost a year but after just 6 weeks of their program I am now headache free and back to feeling great. I was also able to improve other memory and executive functioning skills through their innovative treatments. I would recommend this practice to anyone who is looking to recover from a brain injury or ADHD treatment. It has been a wonderful and welcoming place and helped me get back to feeling my best.

Very knowledgeable staff and physician that is well over qualified for taking care of their patients. I have had the best experience with dealing with the staff and the physician. At this day and age, it is very rare to find a physician who will take the time to work with their patients and making sure that all of their concerns and issues are listened and treated to accordingly.

My experience at NEUROGROW far exceeded my greatest expectations! I was desperate to find help with the symptoms of a concussion by the time I discovered Dr. Fotuhi and his Brain Fitness Program. Two plus years before going to NeuroGrow I suffered a concussion when a painting fell on my head. Within days I realized that I was having problems with focusing, concentration, memory, decision-making, worsening severe headaches and photophobia. With time I became more and more bothered by them. I was sleeping 15 hours and more a day. I own a small business and was unable to function adequately there or within my personal life I saw several physicians and everyone said 'Give it time'...One said weeks, another months. Later I heard that for "older" patients it may even take 2 years to recover! No one implied there was treatment for a concussion. Meeting Dr. Fotuhi and his staff changed my life! I learned my symptoms were classic for a concussion and there was treatment available.

Cares more than any doctor I've ever met. He is genuinely compassionate and invested in managing patient care. As I'm only eighteen, he treats me like a daughter. I could not ask for a better neurologist in terms of commitment to ensuring an improved state of well-being for his patients. Note: I accidentally hit "thumbs down" on Tracy G. (Ashburn, VA)'s review down below, but she said it better than I ever could. Doctor Fotuhi truly is one of the kindest people I've ever met and I am eternally grateful for his determined efforts to keep me happy, healthy, and pain-free.

I was at my wits end after suffering life threatening complications from a hysterectomy. My obgyn failed to recognize the obvious signs of a bowel perforation, allowed me to proceed to septic shock, and teeter on the edge of life and I spent three months in a coma in the ICU. I lived through septic shock, ARDS and several cardiac arrests. I noticed continual cognitive decline 2 years post release from the original injury and was not satisfied with the medical care I was receiving in Atlanta. Dr. Fotuhi and his staff gave me hope again. He diagnosed me with a vestibular disorder immediately, took me off a ton of medication, and my medical PTSD symptoms have been drastically reduced by the neurofeedback. I travel from Atlanta to take advantage of this level and quality of care. You could not ask for a doctor more dedicated to his patients. I just wish we could clone him!

I came to Dr Fotuhi for concussion-related problems. In a short time, I have seen improvements to the amount of material I can read, and my word-finding abilities are much improved. I highly recommend Dr Fotuhi and his staff.

I was recommended to visit NeuroGrow, due to having difficulty with my anxiety level as well as my memory and concentration. Dr. Fotuhi spent an hour understanding my concerns and suggested multiple options; which made me feel that he cares about his patients. He recommended the 12-week program, which would aid me with gaining sharper memory, heightened focus, better sleep, and reduce my stress/anxiety. The program incorporates brain mapping, tests, brain coaching sessions, and neurofeeback. I have truly enjoyed learning the techniques and practices the coaches provided to me. The staff is excellent, supportive, friendly, and they are always willing to assist you with any concerns. The wonderful program and the quality care have helped me a lot. With coaching and trainings, my memory and concentration have significantly improved. Likewise, my stress level has declined drastically. I would definitely recommend Dr. Fotuhi and the NeuroGrow team.

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.
