While I trust in Dr. Natarajan, his facility is continually disappointing. Most visits included long wait times, most recently a 3 hour appointment, and the medical record policy is beyond outrageous. I requested lab work for results I just received and was told I would be charged $20 to receive a copy. Rather than incur that cost, I decided to have a copy sent to my primary care physician and was questioned on why my PCP needs the labs. This experience makes me reconsider using this facility.

Dr. Natarajan has been my neurologist for several years now. He is straight forward and come across as rude sometimes, but he has so many patients and is always busy. He is wonderful at his job and has given me relief of my pain when no other doctor in the area could. His staff always calls me a few dyas before my appointment to remind me of my appointment. I love the staff there and have never had a problem.

Dr. Natarajan was direct, professional and listened to me while I explained my systems. I'm looking forward to working with him to solve my health issues.

This office will change your appointment without telling you and act as if it is your fault when you show up for an appointment they canceled without notifying you. They will not call in your prescriptions and when you tell them you have not taken the meds because they have not renewed them they raise their voice at you like it is your fault. Dr. Natarajan is not welcoming and rude...I do not recommend for migraines.
Made 3 appts with this group. Which I had to take an entire day off work ~ lost money on the first 2 appts 1st appt.... I showed up and they said my appt was the day before. I wrote down and confirmed when making before I got off the phone. They would NOT work me in. Nor would they refill my prescription. 2nd appt... They cancelled in me and never attempted to tell me. Another's days pay lost. 3 rd appt.. I did forget. They called to tell me that I owe $50 for missing. r u kidding !!!

He was professional and made me well. No chit chat just ask where was I was having my problems and gave me botox where I needed the injections. And told me when to come back. NOW I NEED HIM AGAIN. AND I HOPE HE WILL DO THE SAME.!
