Told me that there was nothing structurally wrong with when in fact I really needed major neurosurgery. Refused to order an MRI. Label me as “ all in my head” but neurosurgeon said that I within an inch of being dead or in a wheelchair. Didn’t diagnose several other issues that a neurologist should have easily found. After having his diagnosis haunt me and follow me I finally found a brilliant neurologist who takes excellent care of me, but it took 8 yrs. The affects and trauma still cause pain.

I was expecting so much more compassion from this doctor. I was not there for any other reason other than being terrified. He made me leave in tears. Didn't listen. Assumed. And made me feel like it was all in my head. I have moved on with someone else that found my diagnosis. Thanks for nothing.

As far as his staff goes, I have no clue why people did not give them 5 solid stars. Maybe it's the fact that you can't please everyone. However, they are so wickedly efficient at their jobs. They do not make better teams than this. There is a reason the best neurologist in the country maybe world hired them. They are the unsung heroes that makes everything work at his practice - so kudos to them and forget what the other people have said in a negative manner. You all deserve so much more.
