Dr Marcella Mwaisela was professional and caring. Her office personnel are rude!

I am a migraine sufferer. Dr Mwaisela has been treating me for many many years. She is a wealth of information,and always willing to help. I highly recommended her for "ANY" of your neurological issues. Her office always runs on time. Never a long wait.

Had a visit with Dr. Marcella Mwaisela with my father who has Parkinson's. I can't express enough how grateful I am to have found her. She was extremely attentive and kind. Her exam was very thorough. She was extremely patient with us as we had many questions and concerns. Together, we formed a treatment plan that has my father feeling better after only 2 days. Paid attention to my father instead of the computer - rare to find these days. Many thanks!

Very cold and unsympathetic. Did not appreciate her dismissiveness when she concluded that my symptoms did not fit into a neat little box. To her, clean scans meant my problem was psychological. I've since been seen by doctors at Mayo Clinic and at BW in Boston who've validated that my unusual symptoms are not psychogenic in origin. She does not think outside the box and was a poor fit for my needs.
