Dr. Bangalore did an amazing job helping control my seizures. He took his time answering all of my question regarding the medications and side effects. I will always recommend anyone with epilepsy to see Dr. Bangalore. I was told by many doctors that I did not have epilepsy until Dr. Bangalore took his time to fully review my medical chart.

He is just amazing. I’ve never met a more genuine and caring doctor. It may not seem like much, but he helped me get to a true diagnosis. One that I was having a hard time getting from any other neurologist. If you’re struggling with a seizure disorder, Dr. Bangalore is who you want to see. Start by attending the epilepsy support group at Sunrise Hospital.

Dr. Bangalore has always been very professional and honestly concerned about my health (present and future). He was attentive and discussed all of our concerns with how I was doing and what we(my husband and I) could do to make our lives better. The best doctor we have ever had in all areas.

Dr. Bangalore took time to answer all of my questions and made sure that I had a clear understanding of my medical condition. Prior to seeing Dr. Bangalore I was misdiagnosed because I don't look sick and my seizures occurred at certain times.

Dr. Bangalore was able to stop my seizures after about one month in the hospital, not to mention I was pregnant and had a 2 year old at home. I was taken to Sunrise by my husband due to their good reputation with seizure patients, Dr. Bangalore was the third Neurologist to see me and the only one to control my seizures. He is no longer on my insurance network and I have continued as his patient - he is one of the best!

In short, Dr. Bangalore saved my husband's life! He was able to determine the actual cause of my husband's sudden onset seizures and bring him back from the dead! We will be forever indebted to Dr. Bangalore! When we demanded a transfer out of st. Rose and over to Dr Bangalore everything changed for the better!
