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!
in St Louis, MO |
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.

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.
