DR. MACWAN WAS RECOMMENDED AS AN EXCELLENT NEUROLOGIST, BUT HE WAS DISAPPOINTING & AND HIS STAFF IS TRULY INCOMPETENT. I HAVE TALKE TO 5 DIFFERENT PEOPLE WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO DR. MACWAN'S ASSITANT. NOT ONE OF THEM EVER RETURNED MY CALLS REGARDING SCHEDULING FOR AN MRI. DON'T RISK YOUR HEALTH...more

Dr. Macwan is a well educated and caring doctor. He understood my neurological illnesses and referred me to other doctors for additional specialized care. My quality of life has greatly improved as a result of his care. I recommend him to friends and family.
