What People Say About Dr. Nihal Herath, MD

Dr. Herath spent 10 min. each - two visits each with me. He diagnosed me with Parkinsons Disease. He was ready to write me a script for the disease. I replied "no" to the drugs. I did go back to an appointment scheduled for two weeks. He was convinced about his diagnosis. He was going to write script and told me a lot of people are in denial. Second opinion at Froedert Hospital. I definitely DO NOT have Parkinsons. How many others has he diagnosed with this disease? It WAS NOT a good experience.

Awful! Misdiagnosed me with seizure disorder. Prescribed antiseizure med that I didn't tolerate. Dosage not therapeutic. Didn't do documentation on tests that he ordered. I saw another doctor after being miserable on meds for a year. New doc told me I could quit meds immediately. I haven't had any seizure symptoms in 5+ years. Get a second opinion if you've seen him. Ask to see your medical record. Mine had almost no information. Things he said at appts was not noted. EEG tests not read.

To make a long story short, I got a second opinion. Quick to jump to diagnosing and treating before the diagnosis was confirmed. Extremely rude staff
