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.

Very generous with her time with my husband and me. She answered every question in depth and never spoke down to us. We had great assurance that she's is an expert in her field and that my husband would be well taken care of by Dr. Petrossian.

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.
