Very good Neurologist to be short and sweet
Jamestown, NY |
The doctor and staff are all very professional. You do not feel rushed when asking questions. They are always very willing o explain things in a way that pertains to your health needs. He is not a doctor that will hand out drugs like candy. He will give you what he thinks will work. Doctor shopping will not work with him. The staff is very nice and helpful I would highly recommend him to family and friends .
Would never go back to him .
