We started seeing Dr Andrews when my daughter was having uncontrollable seizures. The first thing he said to me was that we will stop these seizures and improve her behavior and learning. We live 6 hours from his office and he has worked well with us doing Skype calls and having a team come to our home for 3 days to do an EEG. He’s very educated about medications and the effects they have. After a year of working with him I am happy to say my daughter is doing awesome..just like he promised me!

Dr. Andrew's spent over an hour educating us and helping us with our 7 month old infant son. He was honest and to the point! Thank you Dr. Andrew's for giving us the education, support and most importantly listening to our concerns for our son. It's hard to find providers that will listen to your concerns and help you put plans in place to help families struggling with special needs kiddos.

I have been seeing Dr. Andrews for years. He is well-educated not only about epilepsy but on almost every subject there is. I can get his advice about other health topics that I have also. He spends a lot of time with me, he never acts rushed. He takes the time to explain things in a way that you will fully understand. You don't leave his office thinking oh no I forgot to ask about this because Dr. Andrews already told you about it. I would recommend him to family and friends!

I was recommended to Dr. Andrews after the Neurologists in Lincoln could not get my grand mal and black out seizures under control. I was warned he had a quirky personality but I was diagnosed, meds changed and have not had a seizure since. I have been going to him every 6 months for 7 years now. He now comes to Lincoln so I don't have to travel and he takes his time at my appointments to make sure everything is ok. Just be prepared to wait because he does take his time with every patient.

This man is a loonatic. I am not exaggerating! He is listed as pediatric, but it was all geriatric patients when we were there. He was recommended to us for a second opinion for our child that has a very serious disease that causes brain damage. His experties after 10 minutes with us, was to remove all life saving meds and see what happened. That my friends would of killed our child. This man may be great if you need just psychiatric care, but not for a true neurological issue.

Terrible experience with Dr. Andrews. My 84 year old father had a stroke and was his patient. He is arrogant, rude and rolled his eyes when family members had a question.
