No doubt about it, he's the best neurologist, friend we've ever had. VERY experienced and takes his time with each individual patient. Thank you Dr. Macwan ??

I had my first appointment with Dr. Macwan today and found him to be extremely professional, sympathetic and caring. So glad I was referred to him!!!!

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.

What do you call the doctor who graduates last in their class? Doctor. I have a serious -- as of yet undiagnosed neurologic condition -- which a recent MRI of my brain shows, and Dr. Macwan totally dismissed. He did not seem to have looked through my prior medical records and relied on his resident to run the bulk of the appointment. I've since been seen by a neurology team at a major academic institution and the difference in the quality of care -- and bedside manner -- is night and day.

Very thoughtful treatment.

I would say that dr. Macwan is the most arrogant doctor I have ever met. He appears to be extremely insensitive. He had his cell phone going during the appointment. The focus was NOT with me his patient. Had the audacity to tell me I had to wait 1 hour because I was 5 minutes late. During both appointments he did not explain the tests, results, or educate me at all. Your tests are negative I have done my job. He left. With that he took another phone call. No thank you. The staff is A+
