Very comfortable Office visits with this specialist! I’ve heard about Dr. Raval for many years by some of my patients at work...and they were right! this doctor has great Knowledge and the skills to improve and restore me back to a normal, healthy way of living. My questions are answered very professionally, and in a way that I can comprehend. (I have non-curable brain cancer) I was told to live my life now...the cancer I had were a few tumors, And the surgery was going to give me a better chance of living longer, yet, there is no cure. Well, I asked Dr. Raval about how long I could possibly be here and almost jumped out of my seat when he said how wonderful I am doing and that I will be around for much longer than expected. I cried “happy” tears all the way home. He is highly recommended! He might not be very up front and friendly, (However, he is not at all rude.)he sticks to his business in an extremely professional manner.

Dr Raval has been my neurologist for 12 years now. I would not go to anyone else. He is so caring and thorough. Dr Raval is patient, answer my questions, and has been there for me through 3 brain surgeries. I’m very thankful for his expertise.

The office attempted to change my moms appointment because they said they double booked, and completely unaccommodating/flexible to reschedule. They were booked all of the next month and the doctor was going away for a whole month. This is after I scheduled the appointment over a month and half ago. Unbelievable. He was recommended by my moms geriatric doctor and I surely let her doctor know their inability to accommodate, despite them wanting to change the time!

My husband had a second brain surgery and was referred to Dr Raval. His seizures were under control but not completely gone. Dr Raval changed all his meds and now he is having 3-5 per week on average! Called the office several times and the dr doesnt know what meds he is on and tells me to double everything up for the night and give 1.5x his regular dosage from now on every time I call between appointments . Won't write a new script and won't listen to my husband during appointments. Awful dr!!!

Dr. ravel had horrible bedside manners and poor judgment. He came in and told me that my grandmother'scurrent status is "nasty", IN FRONT OF HER, which was a poor choice of words. He said he was very upset that we refused steroids, even though Neurosurgeon made it clear that steroids would not help. He agreed and stated it would not help nor would it hurt. I stated we saw crazy mood swings while on steroids.He denied it and said it was not from the steroids. Guess he really wanted to get paid.
