Dr Armstrong has been treating me for years dealing with my Peripheral Neuropathy & Charcot Marie Tooth disease. He is/was my #1 MD to help with my Disability payments, Medications & encouragement to stay positive. I saw him out in the city, & he still has that warm greeting.

Dr. Armstrong does not read your MRI and MRA. He relies on the radiologist. He missed critical information.

I saw Dr. Armstrong for trigeminal neuralgia. He ordered radiosurgery to treat it, but before the radiosurgery center could be performed, I needed to have a MRI. Dr. Armstrong called me to inform me that my MRI showed a brain tumor. Then 2 days later, I received the written report from the Imaging Center, and it clearly stated that there were 2 brain tumors. When I called Dr. Armstrong to ask about the second, larger tumor, he refused to answer my calls. I called at least 6 times and never received a return call. Needless to say I was extremely distressed, and had to remain that way until I could make an appointment with another local neurologist. As the MRI reported, I did, in fact, have two brain tumors. Both Dr. Armstrong and his staff showed a total disregard for my welfare and never did get back in touch. I wouldn't recommend this practice, especially Dr. Armstrong, to any other person with a neurological condition.

I have moved to Virginia now, but I am grateful to have had Dr. Armstrong for many years. I am grateful for all he has done to take excellent care of me as well as my late husband, John.
