I have been suffering from an increased number of migraines over the last year. Dr. Dhungana came in and did a complete interview with much interaction and input. Although I fell into a low risk category as applied to migraine sufferers, he was very compassionate and caring. His advice was to me included to add some natural alternatives to my daily regimen. It has been about 2 months since my visit and by adding some natural products to my diet, I have found much less frequency of attacks. I am quite happy with Dr. Dhungana.

Outstanding, caring physician. He listened to my concerns as a wife, caretaker and retired RN. He took his time, examining my spouse, his speech, his gait, his memory etc. I could see that he really cared about my husband.

Dr.Samish Dhungana was the doctor on call when I had a 2nd TIA. He came in making statements instead of asking questions to my wife and me without any type of bed side manor or care for what I had just gone thru. After being evaluated by two doctors in the ER who diagnosed me with having a second TIA in 6 months and being treated by another neurologist for the previous 6 months, he came in telling me that I had never had any TIAs and that it was all in my head. He was of NO benefit at all.
