The only physician I have ever met that really treats the whole patient, thinks out of the box and investigates thoroughly to find the cause of illness., There is no reason to seek a neurologist in Manhattan or elsewhere if you have this physician treating your illness.

Dr Alexianu has been a blessing for my heath.After being dismissed my a neuro when I said my legs twitch said "well I don't see it " Dr alexianu diagnosed my disorder& proper treatment. Does EZmG herself. Always asks how I am doing on a medication/treatment knowing we are all different! Talks to you not at you! Feel better under her care over 9 yrs. Had unrelated spine surgery she checked for Nero impact & whole body not just neurological Knowledgeable w/ALL newest drugs/treatments-Best of Best!

Went to multiple doctors with the same terrible symptoms that were getting worse. They all told me I was fine and it was just stress. I found that odd considering I hadn't felt any stress or anxiety prior to onset. It was suggested by a friend to check out a neurologist and thank god I found Dr. Alexianu! She not only believed me, but actually ran tests to see what was causing my issues. She wound up referring me to a rheumatologist where I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, NOT NOTHING!
She is the most conscientious and thorough physician I have ever met with. She took the time to get to know me and carefully listen to my symptoms and concerns. I am not usually one to write online reviews, but I was so impressed by Dr. Alexianu's caring and thorough approach to helping me, that I felt obliged to share my feelings. I have never felt so unrushed and at ease with any other doctor. I highly recommend her.
