I have had diabetic neuropathy for 10 years. Dr. Tzorfas performed a thorough evaluation and has put me on medication to help me with the stabbing and burning pain that I have been getting. I am really grateful for all of his help. The office staff is just wonderful.

Dr. Tzorfas was very helpful with my pain and numbness in my arms and legs. I was concerned that I had a serious neurological disorder. He was very thorough in his workup and thankfully, the testing came back negative. He assured me I have nothing to worry about. I feel fine now. I am very grateful for Dr. Tzorfas' help. I highly recommend him and his office manager Jessica is superb.

Dr Tzorfas is extremely knowledgeable and comforting. He explains everything very well and makes sure his patient understands. He is very reassuring. I have been dealing with migraine headaches all of my life and I finally have them under good control due to Dr. Tzorafs' care. Jessica makes sure the tests he orders get precerted quickly and she is always very helpful and accomodating.

Condescending. He put me on a very strong med which needs to be cycled down to get off. He was told by my employer to not give me a refill. I could have died. I had cluster headaches and c1-t2 were all bi laterally herniated. My arm was paralyzed. He -layed games with my health and my life. Horrible dr

He did find out the root of the problem but had know idea how to treat the problem... I complained about having bad pain and how it was keeping me up at night and was pretty much told there was nothing he could do for me.... Please go elsewhere...

I would definitely recommend Dr. Tzorfas as I feel he really LISTENS to his patients. He works to get all the information possible from the patient and has tests performed if he feels they are necessary. If he feels a test is necessary, he explains why. He speaks in terms that the average individual can understand and never tries to rush you out of his office. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking a neurologist.

This goes back a while, but I had migraine headaches that were horrible. I had a history of concussions. I went to see Dr. Tzorfas for help. I was pretty much told they are rebound headaches from taking too much Tylenol or Ibuprofen. I was talked down to and patronized. I found a couple of real Dr's who set me straight. One actually listened and thought about it and found that a disrupted sleep cycle from the concussions was the cause. He helped me sleep and migraines went away.
