Horrendous staff. The woman just hung up on me while I was asking a question.

I called to make an appointment as a new patient, due to having severe headaches and a family history of brain tumors. My primary care physician recommended her as I needed to be referred to a specialist for an MRI. I was turned away by the woman at the front desk when I called because Dr. Barboni will not accept "migraine" or "headache" patients, though she is taking new patients for neuromuscular issues. I am extremely disappointed that I am not able to see her for my potentially serious issue

She is simply the best. Recommended to me as “the only neurologist to go to in northern Palm Beach County” by a long time surgical nurse in the area, Dr. Barboni noticed something was amiss in the neurological testing of my peripheral neuropathy.

I have been a patient of Dr. Zuniga-Barboni for approx. 12 years. She is a fantastic Doctor and I place a great amount of trust in her diagnosis, treatment plan and prognosis. I have a fairly rare neuromuscular disease and she has been treating me successfully. I have seen her for other issues (non-related) and was very satisfied with my care. I wouldn't trust my care to anyone else.

The office staff leaves a lot to be desired. Their mistakes and not understanding the doctors protocols left big issues for me. But, of course the office staff is always right and never wrong so I was the one punished for it. The doctor was very nice so it's a shame that this grade is based on the poor treatment I received from the office staff. I had made a few attempts to make appts, I was told I didn't need them to later having issues because I did.
