This neurologist is great. She was extremely knowledgeable about current diagnostic strategies for my complicated condition . She is also up to date about treatment options . The best part was she is so kind and patient . She answered each and every question I had . I will highly recommend her . Her staff is also like her -the front desk lady was very sweet .
