Dr. Traub now works for UNC in Chapel Hill, NC. She correctly diagnosed that my leg pain was due to a bad hip. I had a hip replacement and now the pain is gone! She also diagnosed spinal stenosis as the cause of numbness in my feet. She is an excellent doctor!

Although Dr. Traub was friendly and was able to conduct in-office neurological exam, I found her to be relatively uninterested in my case of vertigo and general vestibular challenges. Her diagnosis: "Diziness." I ended up finding my own physical therapist and found another neurologist who spent a lot of time with my historical medical records of childhood head trauma. Dr. Traub's recommendation: *shoulder shrug* "You're fine. Do PT if it helps."
