Springfield, VA |
I have been going to Dr. Maru for 4 years and he has no diagnosis. Does not show any compassion or trust with patient. Very poor knowledge of chronic pain. Does not seem interested in the patient or listens to patient. No sympathy with patient's suffering.
Alexandria, VA |
First time patient. Dr. Maru is outstanding. Took lots of time, answered all my questions, discussed my concerns and ordered necessary follow up diagnostic exams. Also responded promptly to some questions I had the next day. His support staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. Provided assist when I had difficulty navigating the on-line portal. Would recommend this doctor and his practice without any hesitation.

listened carefully, and adequately discussed treatment options

My mom has been struggling with unexplained, cronic dizziness for 3 months. We have been in and out of doctor's offices non-stop and Dr. Neal Maru was our last hope. He honestly is the worst doctor I've ever experienced and would not recommend him. He is extremely condescending and made my mom feel foolish as she tried to explain her issues. We have found another neurologist and will never be back.

Highly intelligent doctor; however he is extremely condescending.
