Dr. Holub is very knowledgeable. He takes his time with you. He is a very caring man. By the way I have been going to him for 22 years and will recommend him to any with any problem. Best doctor in Albany.

I have Cluster headaches. I went to Dr. Holub for help. as it turned out, he really didn't know what to do. I had a to wait up to 4 hours to get into the patient room. He is too interested in his research, not you, the patient.

Thought Dr. was great and with involvement in MS thought he was up to date on newer treatments. However, switched to a new Neuro because if issues with Holubs staff. at least 3 time I showed up with my card with scheduled appointment and was told my appointment was for the day before. Even showed the card they had written out and was still refused by front desk to be allowed to see dr. and then they had the nerve to try and charge me for missed appointment.

I am not a patient. My husband is. My dad was. Dr. Holub is always informative as well as a good listener. He is thorough and knowledgeable. The office staff has always been friendly and attentive.
in New Paltz, NY |
He had not looked at my MRI that was sent by my neurologist before I came and never followed up with referral for cognitive testing and now months later, has not submitted my office exam notes to my neurologist - all things he said he would do. Most of the appt was him dictating into his phone. I am profoundly disappointed and would not recommend him. On top of it all his office staff was rude and the office itself hasn't been updated since the 60's including the sketchy bathroom.

He will keep you waiting for hours and his knowledge of current, up-to-dats medicine is lacking. He is rude and disrespectful because you will not be treated fairly and left to wait for hours on end in the waiting room....
