poor communication, hard to understand, ignored a lot of my questions while asking me the same questions repeatedly. I do not have issues sleeping but that was the question he seemed to fixate on. I am cancelling future appts and looking for another doctor.

Rude receptionist, money hungry office, Dr. won't let you get a word in and his English is horrible. The wait was long. Also, tried to cancel my appointment a 4pm appointment at 9am and receptionist told me I had to pay $25 sorry that will not happen ma'am. I would not recommend this place at all.

He was about two hours late returning from lunch. I can deal with that, but he was rushed, flustered and didn't pay attention to a thing I said. He had not read my MRI report, which is why I was sent to specialists. There was a serious issue. He had no clue, then when I said that's why I'm here, to cover, he quickly glanced at the MRI report, then said the issue was very common and not a big deal. If you google it, it's NOT common, and can be a very big deal. Turned out mine is.

His staff is rude. He asks the same question over and over. So it is like he doesn't pay attention to what you say to him. As far as the staff, I don't think there is any fixing it. It needs to be all new.

During the exam Dr. Kini burped within inches of my wife's face no less than 6 times. He was condecending and ignored my concerns. I need to sleep he said. I told him I sleep just fine. He prescribed a drug to help me with sleeping (I don't need), which is strongly contraindicated with another drug I am on, with some pretty ugly side effects. I ran this past my PCP who agreed mixing the two was bad news. Called Dr. Kini's office-the woman on the phone told me I was wrong and was VERY rude. Run!!

Terrible experience. Asked same questions over and over again. Almost walked out during exam. It's as though he has no experience in the medical field, let alone neurology. Do not recommend

He is not focused on total patient care and doesn't listen to patient or family member. He is unprofessional and completely over medicated my mother without finding a root cause for the tremors.

We would not recommend this office to anyone. The doctor simply relied on prescribing new medications without looking at prior medical records or performing brain MRI (despite requesting it). We were told that insurance wouldn't support MRI (we followed up with insurance as it turned out that doctor wouldn't request it). My husband had TBI and suffers from temper issues, anxiety and short-term memory problems. It is beyond me that doctor would be eager to prescribe drugs without any research.
