Dr. Devinsky saved my life! At 44 years old, I had my first seizure with two additional ones shortly thereafter. After meeting with Dr. Devinsky for almost two hours, he laid the cards out on the table in an honest and sincere way. He said that Epilepsy is not a science; it is an art and there are many grey areas. He said that it would take some time to come up with the right medicines to resolve the condition. In a matter of three months all was resolved and I have been seizure free since!

He is a amazing, brilliant and caring doctor. I couldn't recommend him more. Few have his expertise and bed side manner.

This man has devoted his life to improving the lives of people living with seizures. After seeing multiple neurologist and being told to give up, Dr Deviinsky was able to stop my sons multiple seizures.

not only is Dr. Devinsky an excellent doctor, he is a very caring person. He helped my sister to the fullest, the best he can. Although she lost her battle with epilepsy, I always find myself thinking of all the things he has done for her.She adored him, looked forward to going to her appointments with him because he treated her so well.I would love to personally thank this man for all that he has done for her during her battle. Any person who talks down on him, truly doesn't know him. Thank you
nothing but the best!! Though busy and hard to get in touch with, you can trust his office Nurse to always take any concerns and emergency questions to Dr Devinsky and get back to you in a decent amount of time. Of course Dr. Devinsky always gives you his best at appointments and has always taken care of my son --- now for the last 25 yrs.

Dr. Devinsky is the best Dr I have ever had in my life! He is the only Neurologist I have ever had that understood and explained things to me so I could understand. His intelligence and interest in Epilepsy is beyond awesome!!!! He has helped me and my Epilepsy in ways that other Neurologist could not and I honestly would not trust anyone else!!! My family moved out of state, but I still travel to NYC to see Dr. Devinsky. That should tell you something!
