      After being examined by many Doctor's, none could confirm a diagnosis or treatment, I was transferred to Stony Brook Hospital where Dr. Pourmand was in charge of my care.......Dr. Pourmand visited me each day, would spend time answering my questions and alleving my fears, was kind and considerate....never was in a rush and spent as much time as I needed. After discharge, he was available via phone and would return my calls promptly. I have Myasthienia Gravis and remain in his care. Excellent!

      If it wasn't for Dr Pourmand I believe I wouldn't of found out what was wrong with me. I was misdiagnosed when I saw a dermatologist and eneded up in the ER at stony brook . I was advised to see a muscular neurologist and was lucky to see Dr Pourmand . he diagnosed me immediately and I was on the mend . i am told by other Drs that im required to see that Dr Pourmand is very cautious , as he has sent me for numerous tests pertaining to my condition .

      Very kind doctor and very thorough in his examination.

      Dr. Pourmand's office was very friendly I was seen almost immediately- before paperwork was even done. Stephanie the receptionist was a delight. The Doctor was professional and helpful with finding the proper treatment plan for me. I never felt rushed- he showed empathy- I would return most definitely and recommend also to family and friends.

      Dr. Pourmand is one of the few neurologists in Suffolk County who are familiar with and treat myasthenia graves. I believe he is a consultant with one or more of the mg support groups. I have always found him interested in my conditions and knowledgeable about the treatment. I recently saw him because I had a setback with eyelid muscles. He spent time with me and prescribed a medication saying that I should check back with him in a few weeks so we could adjust the medication if necessary.

      Dr. Pourmand was extremely rude. Spoke over me consistently, didn't wait for me to answer a single question, made assumptions and challenged me about everything. This man literally told me my symptoms were made up, all this while in front of 2 medical students!! I was not warned, or given a choice, that there would be 2 medical students in the office during my first, very personal visit. This doctor is why people are losing faith in the American medical system.

      I was very disappointed with my visit. Dr. Pourmand is RUDE! When he even came out to get me from the waiting room he just said hello and waited with an aggravated, would not even say the name of the patient he was calling in. Nothing warm and gentle about him. Felt completely rushed from start and when I would try to explain my condition he would cut me off or over talk me. Nothing, but a waste of my time!

      After many years of illness, I was finally diagnosed with Myasthena Gravis. The doctor recommended me to go to Dr. Pourmand for treatment. Dr. Pourmand not only helped me with the proper treatment and medication, but was also available to me at all times. I am pleased and happy to be his patient.
