After reading the last two comments I almost didn't keep my referral to Dr. Ente. I called my own doctor who referred me and he said he doesn't understand where these bad comments were coming from. I went to see Dr. Ente and had no problems whatsoever. He is a fine doctor.

I felt ignored and left feeling abandoned. He didn't have my MRI scans and was unprepared. He didn't let me talk. He told me that my brain disease doesn't cause symptoms, although you can look them up on the internet. If you are looking for help, do not go to the doctor. HORRIBLE.
