i saw dr hwynn for migraine headaches & neck pain. he diagnosed me very first visit. his nurse and secretary were very friendly, cordial, caring and helpful. dr hwynn spent a more than sufficient amount of time seeing me at my office visits. he is very smart, kind and just what i was looking for in a neurologist. dr hwynn also treats my mother for parkinson's disease and this is how i learned about him to begin with. thank you so much for the best medical care dr hwynn! :) LMH.
