Patient Comments (11)

Absolutely the worst Dr. I have ever encountered. I literally stopped explaining what I'm dealing with after a couple minutes when I could see he wasn't listening and seemed very preoccupied. He checked my reflexes then suggested seeing a university Dr. Because I have a special case..... whatever...more

Never saw my scans, spent less than 5 min, seemed so dis-interested. Not going to see him again.

He doesn't listen to what you are saying. He just assumed he is right. That Dr is God mentality. Assumed I was there for seizures but have lost memory. Got test done went back asked how I felt told him. He said oh because of your seizures. NO listen and read the chart dude.

Did not look at my chart, did not look at my CT scan, really did not give me the time of day. He did not answer the questions I had. I am currently looking for another neurologist for a second opinion. It was a waste of my time.

I waited two months to get in to see him and 5 minutes was only spent with me the day I get in. He did not ask me about my past medical history, did not seem interested in what I had to say and the questions I asked were brushed off. I came out of the office in tears.
