Patient Comments (3)
Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Nealon is an outstanding physician. I simply do not understand why her ratings are not higher here. She is extremely smart, knowledgeable, caring, empathetic, extremely responsive, on top of all the very latest research (much of which she and the hospital participate in), flexible, open to a range of therapeutic approaches, patient and gentle. I am so glad I was referred to her, and could not ask for a better MD to help me navigate and treat MS. I saw other MDs, but I am sticking with her.

Very knowledgeable and friendly, will recommend without reservation.

If there was a million stars to highlight she would get them all. Dr.Nealon saved my life. If your looking for a doctor who will do everything and anything she can for you, dr. Nealon is the one! I was admitted into Weil Cornell hospital and that's where I met Dr.Nealon and saw how she was there for me so I had to stay with her. I live on Long Island and travel into the city once a month to get my medication and see her everytime I I'm there. She will lead you in the right direction!
