Thorough and not overly reactive. I've gone in with numerous "small" complaints - a neurologist is almost a primary care physician, in that he can diagnose and treat all sorts of ailments. Very attentive and responsive. I've recommended him to many friends, all of whom are pleased.

I found Dr. Rosenthal on Zocdoc and went in for a consultation for numbness in my hand. He determined through very extensive testing that I'd had a mild stroke--something my primary doctor missed--and started me on the correct course of treatment ASAP. He even contacted my primary to discuss the oversight. His office manager Nicole stayed late to book me an emergency MRI and on one occasion helped me to get a test done when Dr. Rosenthal's office was closed. These people listen and they care!!!

Every patient arrives with different needs. The unique nature of each visit tends to create reviews so specific that they offer little guidance, good or bad. Dr. Rosenthal, however, has mastered those exceptional qualities universally desired by all in need of help. He is Sympathetic, Intelligent, and Effective; inspiring confidence that problems can be treated and better days will come. Nicole, who does everything the Doctor doesn't, is a friendly voice and a great help!

I have been a patient of Dr. Rosenthal for many years. He is a warm caring very competent physician who was recommended to me by a retired surgeon. Several years ago I had severe back problems and Dr. Rosenthal arranged for me to immediately see a neurosurgeon at Weill Cornell. Two days later I was operated upon and two months later I was playing tennis again. The office is small with his very competent assistant, Nicole, handling the administrative tasks. Dr. Rosenthal works on a timely basis.

I first met Dr. Rosenthal in December 2012 for my diabetic neuropathy. I found his initial evaluation and assessment to be very helpful and insightful. I have continued to see him for my neuropathy ever since. Either on a quarterly or semi-annual basis, depending upon how the neuropathy in my feet and lower legs is progressing. His office administrator has been very helpful with insurance, making appointments and reminding me when my next appointment is. I strongly endorse his medical services

After suffering from cluster headaches for years, Dr. Rosenthal diagnosed and treated them effectively. He called me back within an hour on more than one occasion when I had questions about my treatment. He is extremely intelligent, dedicated, and professional. I enthusiastically recommend him.

I was referred to Dr. Rosenthal for a tremor. He ordered an ultrasound of my carotid arteries. The right carotid artery was over 90% blocked. I was stunned. High cholesterol runs in my family. Had an endarterectomy, blockage removed, carotids clean. Saved my life. Brilliant diagnostician, thorough, listens, inquisitive, caring. With tremor I'm unable to take the drugs usually prescribed. Trying a drug which is in the testing phase for tremor, specifically my voice. I'm a singer, actress.

I have been seeing Dr. Rosenthal for as long as I remember (maybe 10 years now?), and I have recommended him to anyone who suffers with migraines. He is helpful, inquisitive, responsive (I once had an emergency on the weekend in the summer -- he called me back quickly), and he is warm. He also is v empathetic to the nonsense that goes on w/ insurers. What I really like about the office is that it is very small. It's usually just Dr R and Nicole, who runs the front end. After years of going ther

Dr. Rosenthal and staff are friendly, thorough and professional. I've been seen him for years and it's always a painless and pleasant office visit!
in East Meadow, NY |
I would highly recommend Dr. Rosenthal. He was extremely thorough, very smart and took the time to answer all of my questions. I also have to say that making an appt and dealing with insurance with his office manager Nicole was super easy and pleasant.
New York, NY |
Dr. Rosenthal is a terrific doctor, who takes time and care with his patients. He is a fount of knowledge and information, with a warmth, depth, and sense of humor rarely found in doctors in my experience. He treated me for a problem I was suffering from for a long time, and patiently worked me through my diagnosis and treatment until the symptoms were almost completely gone. I couldn't be more grateful to Dr. Rosenthal and his assistant Nicole who is also very charming. Thank you Dr!
in Roosevelt, NY |
Dr. Rosenthal treated my father-in-law, my mother and me. Firstly, he discovered a problem in my f-i-l that no one else could diagnose. He personally made the phone call to a surgeon and continually followed up on his progress. He saved his life . Secondly, he appropriately diagnosed my mother's problem, referred her to the appropriate surgeon and again continued to follow up on her care. The same was true for me. He diagnosed my problem and provided me the medication that solved my issue.
in New York, NY |
Not only he rushes you but doesn't listen to all your symptoms. Clearly just wants the money,thats it.The front desk girl so rude, my god, wouldn't answer, put me twice on hold and when she picked up the 3rd time she hung up. Pointless worker clearly. NEVER AGAIN!!!!
New York, NY |
Dr. Rosenthal is a thorough doctor who listens, prescribed multiple tests, and analyzes to find out what are the reasons for my blackouts and near fainting spells. I felt confident under his care. He is busy but has good bedside manners.
