    Dr Reading is a fantastic doctor, the best I think I've ever seen in fact. She actively listened to absolutely everything I was concerned about, explained thoroughly her plan and just overall was a very pleasant person to talk to. I hate going to any doctor's office but Dr Reading made me feel as calm and relaxed as possible.

    Saw the doctor once- misdiagnosed me. Communication with nurse was horrible. They also wouldn't let me see any other neurologist in the ADC practice because I saw this doctor once. Forcing adult patients to see a doctor they don't want to see seems illegal to me.

    If I could leave zero stars I would do so. I tried to see this doctor but was refused service because she does not accept self-pay patients. My insurance was terminated and even though I had cash to pay for my visit with this doctor she refused to see me. I drove 35 miles to see this doctor only to be told by her nurse that she does not see self-pay patients. The fact that she picks and chooses who she deems worthy of her expertise is disgusting.

    I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Reading and all the information she provided for me. She did what I felt was appropriate testing to determine my problem and was very help in many other ways. I wish she was an internist or family practice doctor so I could have her take care of any problem I might have now that I am getting older. I was thoroughly impressed with her.
