Strong liistener Asks the right questions

Strong professional. Stays current on latest advances. Explores needs of the patient, which is important with the numerous and often hidden symptoms of Parkinson's. Probably deserves 5 stars, but I rarely give 5 star ratings........Now if he discovers a cure........I may need to make an exception.

Dr, Alcalay is the consummate professional. I started off with a different Dr. at Columbia but participated in some of Dr. Alcalay's studies. He took a special interest in my case and quickly gained my trust with his knowledge and compassion. He always returned my emails when I was need, even on weekends. With this treatment, I decided to have Dr. Alcalay as my primary PD Dr. Best decision I ever made!!
