I'm very pleased with Dr. Kaminski. He doesn't keep one in the dark or speak in terms one cannot understand. My wife has Parkinson's along with Lewy Body Dementia. There is no cure and she has progressed into the later stages. He was very kind in talking with us and letting us know what to expect.

It was very good to meet with Dr. Kaminski. First, he sat down and talked to me about my symptoms, made notes and then talked to me about what might be going on with me. Talking with him reminds me of what an old fashioned doctor that cared for his patients would do, patient first not the money he would get by seeing as many patients per day as he could cram in.

After seeing 5 other neurologist I was able to see Dr. Kaminski. He did not have all the answers but he explained all the questions. It is a shame that he will retire next year. I could not be more pleased and grateful for the time he spent with me.

Dr. Kaminski was extremely attentive, a great listener and very thorough in his assessment. He explained things very well and in a way that I could understand. His bedside manner is terrific. I had severe concerns coming in and his confidence and experience put my mind at ease. He is very knowledgeable, honest and spent as much time as I needed to discuss my issues and concerns (over an hour). I would highly recommend him to others.

Pompous physician. My wife visited him a couple of times when she was diagnosed with MCI. We had learned of The Bredesen Protocol and the promising aspects it offers for ALZ patients. She asked him about the effect of diet on her condition, and he advised her changing her diet would not help her and then had the arrogant gall to tell her she “should’ve started that diet 30 years ago.” Needless to say, we never went back to this corporate medical shill again. In my opinion, stay clear.
