I believe Dr. Head to be one of the finest Doctors I've ever had the pleasure to know.

I would NEVER go back there! He is rude and seemed annoyed when we had went in to go over test results. When I asked questions about the diagnosis, he told me "I am the doctor, I know what I am talking about". He rolled his eyes at me several times after asking for more information. His office staff is just as rude. When I called to talk to the office manager about 2 very big mistakes that were made I was told to fine another neurologist! I will gladly be doing that!

Dr. Head is came off cruel and rude. He called to explain the results of my MRI which indicated I had a stroke. He spoke very quickly and said many other things after that and when I asked him to repeat that i had had a stroke, (a very shocking discovery) he was clearly agitated. I don't recommend him to anyone who desires a patient and caring doctor. He may or may not know his stuff, but no one deserves to be treated poorly when going through a medical crisis.

Dr. Head was polite. Took notes about what I said. Scheduled several tests. Felt follow up was poor. By phone call explained one diagnosis. Did not suggest follow up appointment. Was not specific about results of most tests. Office staff was abrupt at times. I got a second opinion as I felt problems were not addressed.

Seemed knowledgable about my particular & I'm sure rare case. I was told there was something else happening with me. He did not say what it was or what to do other than to see a phycologist & get an MRI "because insurance would pay for it" I liked him until he evidently didn't like what I had said, therefore, he abruptly walked out of exam room and disappeared! Wow!

walked in the room to do my test, got right to it with out introducing himself ,no name no hello nothing, super rough not friendly at all. Talked to the nurse the entire time about his personal life, didn't feel like he was paying attention to me at all as his patient, paid more attention to the nurse talking about their personal life. Not professional at all doc. Don't recommend.
in St. Louis, MO |
Absolutely awful. He knows absolutely nothing about Chiari, so if that's what you are seeing him for, please go elsewhere and don't listen to his nonsense.

Dr Head was very polite, seemed caring, put me at ease. Explained my condition, very patient and encouraging. I have confidence that I am in good hands.
