Dr. Prego-Lopez is an excellent neurologist. She was able to diagnose my mother after a thorough examination. Lovely beside manner, extremely knowledgeable caring doctor. Without hesitation would highly recommend Dr. Prego-Lopez.

One of the best doctors I have ever been to. She is down to earth, spent time explaining and speaking to me, and even called a few times to check on me. Highly recommend her.

Dr. Prego-Lopez is incredible. She listens and gives me time to discuss my issues no matter how bizarre they seem. She explains everything and answers all my questions. She is very thorough, investigative, and caring. When I had to change insurance, an insurance company I knew her group was no longer aligned with, I made the decision to change because I would go to her with or without insurance—she's that good!

Great experience with the doctor and the staff, she takes her time with patients. You dont see that very often! will recommend!

I had a similar experience to the two previous patients. Just today I got my second opinion at the Cleveland Clinic. Prego-Lopez misdiagnosed me and scared the daylights out of me unnecessarily. I do NOT have shrinkage and deterioration in my brain, as she stated. I am very healthy - probably healthier than she is. Her office staff are terrible, never follow through on anything. Besides being incompetent, she is a nasty woman - was so rude to me for no reason. Stay away!

Dr. Lopez totally mis-diagnosised me. Dr Lopez wrote up a life threatening disease, which had me in a panic state. I went to another neurologist who diagnosis was that I had absolutely nothing medially wrong with me. I highly suggest that if have visited with Dr. Lopez that you go see another neurologist immediately!
Did not seem to care that much. I was sure if she is really a doctor.
