Dr. Neal is wonderful! She is a skilled doctor, always willing to listen and explain. I've been seeing her for years. The first time I saw, her she diagnosed a condition that my neurologist had missed. I recommend her highly.

I originally saw Dr. Neil for an emergency eye issue. Even as a new patient she fit me in to her schedule the same day! Once I met her I knew I had just added another wonderful physician to my medical team. I am chronically ill and have several major medical diseases plus more secondary issues...more
