Dr. E and his staff always take great care of me! I have been seeing this Doctor and office for a couple of years now. They have worked with my busy schedule and always get me in and out of the office efficiently. The treatment works great to mitigate my migraines and the Doctor always listens and takes into account any concerns or treatment issues I may have.

Dr. Engelbrecht is an excellent listener. He takes the time to answer questions, explains conditions and treatment options clearly, and never made me feel rushed. He and his staff responded to calls in a timely and kind fashion, even after I was no longer a local patient. Dr. Englebrecht and his staff not only gave me excellent care while I lived in Asheville, but helped me transition to neurological care when I moved away.

I have been in Dr. Engelbrecht's continuing care for a TBI (with post-concussion syndrome) for several years. While symptoms related to my TBI are unresolved, Dr. Engelbrecht routinely listens to my concerns, is open-minded with my pursuit of alternative treatments for symptoms, and offers suggestions for coping with the injury. He promptly returns calls and emails between visits. His office is extremely organized and efficient, and the staff are kind and caring.

I was referred to Dr Engelbrecht by my primary care dr for treatment for migraines which I have suffered from for many years. Although I have been treated by top doctors, and have also sought relief from alternative treatments such as acupuncture, I find Dr Engelbrecht to be extremely informed as to new treatments, supportive of alternative treatments, and willing to work with me to find and fine tune a treatment path that best works for me.

He always listens to all of my concerns and addresses each issue. He explains the treatments and has always suggested new treatments when I am not seeing results. He has treated my difficult migraines for 2 years.

I had a bad headache with vision loss and distorted vision. He diagnosed a migraine and told me it would get better, not to call his office until my symptoms changed. I later went to a different neurologist and was correctly diagnosed with having had a stroke. Would not recommend this doctor.
