Dr. Yegiaian is very thorough and an unusually good listener. Yes, expect to wait but it is worthwhile because she will give you the same time as she does others. Her nurses are charming and do their best to insure your comfort. I highly recommend her.

I’m very surprised to see any negative reviews on Dr. Yegiaian. My biggest gripe as a patient was how impossible it was to have other doctor’s offices pronounce and spell her name correctly when we were coordinating between neurologists for my treatment a few years back. All jokes aside, there was only one billing issue I had for a treatment when she opened her own practice and I followed her as a patient - but after all the fighting with my insurance, her office ended up eating the cost of the incorrectly billed medication, not me. I was in a terrible state when we met. Nine other neurologists, worsening symptoms, 20 medications and no one had any idea how to help me. She took a wild guess that I was experiencing rare severe acute migraines and led my treatment for near-blindness + vertigo + complete exhaustion, to being completely functional and only needing 2 medications to resolve all of my symptoms. She really cares about her patients and I fully respect that she never gave up.

BEWARE!! Rude, arrogant, asked for me to pay in cash for unnecessary tests. Gave meds that weren't warranted - I'm still dealing with the fall out. Absolutely heartless! Staff was completely unorganized - lost my labs. Frankly taking advantage of me at my worse. Thank God I had the good sense to leave when I did. Floored she's still practicing.

DR.Y has been my Neuro for years! I have been stubborn as a patient but she keeps me going and does not give up on me . These patients talking about her not being knowledgeable about treating conditions are wrong.and saying she has an ego is laughable .she is far from that!!!! have POTs with many other issues she is cutting edge with meds and if you have migraine like I do no one has EVER been to treat them like she has. I have seen multiple doctors an multiple Neuro drs no one has the bedside

EXCELLENT..After going to two previous neurologists with a continuing worsening of my Myasthenia Gravis I found Dr. Yegiaian. I had reached the point where I had to hold my head up by putting my hand under my chin..The only medication I was on was prednisone and I was rapidly going down hill. I have no doubt that she saved my life. She had me do numerous motor tests( which neither the other neurologists did) and she put me on several medications that reversed EVERY symptom I had. GOD BLESS HER..

It’s amazing reading the comments left on this site about Dr. Y that are so negative. My experience of the staff, diagnosis, follow up, medication regulation and the personal care Dr. Y has given me goes beyond ‘Excellent”. After Stroke and now Epileptic Seizures, I have been given the medical assistance to live my live again, integrating every day living with my health issues. I’m grateful to have Dr. Y and her staff - their advocacy and care for me and my family - you get 10 stars!!!

Please continue to trust these reviews. Dr. Yegiaian continues to show her heartless, egotistical mindset. After over a year, she posted another review "response" to my original post regarding my Lyme dx- taking the time to mock me & "people like me". The truth is in the results. Left her care unable to function holding a prescription that was not appropriate according to Mayo Clinic tests she requested. Am now healthy: exercising, working, enjoying life thanks to 3 awesome docs (inc Lyme doc)

Dr Yegiaian is a really amazing healthcare provider. She listens, asks questions & really explores the cause, impact & treatment options as opposed to just treating symptoms. She Looks at everything that could possibly be contributing to your issue from different angles, then in a thorough & no nonsense way, treats the problem medically While also suggesting beneficial actions that fit within your ability and lifestyle. It is clear that she truly cares about improving her patients lives.

STAY AWAY! She will do unnecessary testing to increase her revenue even though the diagnosis is obvious to most experienced neurologists. I went to 4 other neurologists because I felt that she was not doing the appropriate things,and they were surprised at how much unnecessary testing she did. Stay away.

Dr. Yegiaian is a "one in a million" in the medical field. After years of suffering from severe Dysautonomia/POTS, excruciating migraine headaches, etc., I found her.

Dr. Yegiaian misdiagnosed my medical condition, which almost landed me in the hospital. She became very defensive and demeaning when I questioned her (incorrect) diagnosis. She is cold and rude and I would never recommend her. Not a nice woman

POTS PATIENTS BEWARE From one POTS patient to another, this doctor does not have the knowledge to treat POTS patients even though, sadly, she claims that "POTS is so simple to treat..." Never before have I encountered a doctor so uneducated in an area he/she claims to know so much about, so unprofessional, so rude, so easily offended, and so arrogant as Dr. Y. Go to the POTS Care center in TX instead. They've actually done the research and truly know how to help POTS patients.

Dr. Yegianian is an excellent dr. who takes a great deal of time, and care with her patients. Most importantly she is extremely thorough and will make sure to rule out anything serious, if it all possible. I have been seeing her for 3 years, and I am thrilled she is my neurologist.
