What People Say About Dr. Octavia Kincaid, MD

Dr. Kincaid diagnosed me very quickly. I was very sick for two years and one month and went to at least 10 different doctors with no success. It was determined I had POTS and without her treatment I would have had to go on disability. I am forever greatful to Dr. Kincaid.

Dr. Kincaid treated me for small fiber peripheral neuropathy not-diabetic. I am a 61 year old female that developed numbness, tingling and pain not treated with success by two previous neurologists. Dr. Kincaid did not give up on me like the others. She is easily reached by email and addressed my concerns very promptly, so I did not have to drive from so far away. She prescribed medicine which has helped me walk and keep my job. She change my life at my worst moments. She is a too notch Dr.
