The worst "Doctor" I have ever come in contact with. He basically told a patient that she was crazy for having odd symptoms. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. Very bad bedside manner and arrogant as they get. Probably will not give you a diagnosis.

I regret to hear that you suffer from a chronic neurological disorder for which other physicians haven't been able to provide much assistance. I always spend great amount of time with my patients (30-45 min) and don't take prior diagnosis for granted. Whenever I encounter a conflicting diagnosis, I recomend a sooner follow up appointment (6-8 weeks). I apologize if I couldn't be of much assistance. I sincerely hope your health gets better.
