Dr. Petrossian agreed to treat my palatal myoclonus with injections. They do not state this on the website as the disorder is so rare but she can perform this injection at her Santa Monica office. For those who deal with this extremely rare disorder, this lady might save you from it and validate your suffering. She was kind, thorough and very emboldening. For the last year I’ve batted this disorder which nobody knows about. It has been horribly unbearable. But, the end of the line is near.

Dr Petrosian was quite professional, knowledgeable and personable. She made me feel comfortable and took time to answer all of my questions and concerns. She was very thorough and I never felt rushed like is the case with so many doctors these days. Her admin staff was quite friendly and helpful as well.

Dr. Petrossian is caring, kind, thorough and makes certain that I understand what is going on regarding my medical condition. I had brain surgery and was/is experiencing issues after the surgery. I did see another neurologist prior to seeing Dr. Petrossian but felt that I was not getting the thorough care that I needed. I am so grateful to Dr. Petrossian for trying to find out what is causing my issues. The office staff is courteous, very willing to help. She is a treasure.
