Dr. Rossen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rossen "I received my MD and served my residency in Neurology and my fellowship in neurophysiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center in upstate New York. I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics, a Master's in Geophysics, and a PhD in Cognitive Psychology from Brown University. I live with my wife Kate and our golden retriever in Amherst, MA where we raised our two daughters. I spend my free time biking, kayaking, cross country and downhill skiing, and visiting my daughters who have moved out but continue to live close by in New England. New England is a great place to live and practice, and we especially love western Mass."

Dr. Rossen is the best there is. I've been a patient of his for more than a year. It takes a bit of time to get to know him, but it's well worth it. He cares about his patients and takes great care on explaining procedures and he knows what the best treatments are for each of his clients. Thank you...more

Had my first appointment with Dr Rossen today. He was very professional and thorough. He listened to my concerns and answered my questions. He gave me a thorough exam and a couple of options that he thought could help me. I would certainly recommend Dr. Rossen to anyone have neurological issues,

WE instead are now having to struggle, because he will not fill out a work release form ....more
