    Patient Reviews (6)
    This lady actually rolled her eyes at me as she was walking out the door and I politely asked if we could address the last of my concerns that I had stated early in the conversation I wanted to talk about. After a two hour drive, a broken down car, an Uber ride, a Fast ride, and a tow truck bill to get to her and back home, I figured a little bit of a better bedside manner would have been in order.

    After reading some of the previous reviews on this and other sites, I went in with no real expectations. Most of the less than favorable reviews appeared to be from patients with severe migraines and phaving only experienced a few of those in the past, I can understand how painful and distraught you can become and how fast you want relief. My visit was excellent in every manner from my initial contact with the receptionist, checking in, etc, to the neurologic testing and follow up with Dr. Roy

    I wouldn't send my worst enemy to Dr. Roy. She seems to have no interest in helping her patients whatsoever, just collecting their money. Waited 1 hr+ at almost every appointment. HORRIBLE bedside manner, and all she did was order two very expensive MRIs which didn't address my issues at all. When I finally went to another neurologist, they were shocked she ordered them, as my diagnosis was fairly obvious. I wasted way too much money and certainly too much time with Dr. Roy.

    I have been going to Dr. Roy since the early 2000's. She has treated both me and my wife, who both had very difficult to diagnose Throughout the large amount of time that she had to spend, and the numerous tests that had to be run, she was very professional, and very kind. I have since moved out of state, and drive back over 800 miles each way to be able to maintain her care on a yearly basis

    This place is awful. Checked in early for my appt. (I've had to wait up to 2 hours in the past.) Spent time discussing an invoice I'd received with front desk staff. After about 15 minutes I was informed I'd have to reschedule my appt. because I'd missed it. I WAS TALKING TO STAFF IN THE WAITING ROOM! Got an appt. later that day (Botox for chronic migraine). This was my 2nd treatment. 1st time was w/ Dr. Roy & went fine. This time was with the P.A. & now my eye is drooping. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCES!
