Patient Comments (1)
Queens, NY |
I did have a wait to see him, but I found out why when I was finally brought in to the exam room. I have a complicated medical history, and he gave me a really thorough exam (he measured my calves to confirm muscle . Then he spent a long time explaining what he thought was causing my new symptoms, and explained how he would treat it. I had seen other neurologists, but no one took the time to listen to my symptoms and really examine me. I'm finally getting treatment, and I feel much better.
