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.
in Holland, NY |
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 than I can remember. Dr. Neil has always been willing to listen and even LEARN FROM ME when I have showed her information from other physicians about issues that could show up in an eye exam. Love her!
