Dr Bilchik would be a good doctor if she wasn’t so rude. And you do only get to see her once then you’re shuffled off to one of her inept PA’s. I agree with other reviewer, office staff don’t listen to you, and no one calls you back no matter how much pain you’re in. Could be a good practice but unfortunately falls way short.

Dr. Bilchik is by far one of the most offensive doctors that I have had the misfortune of seeing. She abuses her power as a neurolgist to make inappropriate decisions on a persons personal life. She should be focused treating a patient neurologically which is in fact her field of study.

I really like and trust Dr. Bilchik personally. Office policies horrible. impossible to get a prescription refilled. Staff does not listen to the patient. I called to indicate they had wrong information for my pharmacy and all I have is a phone number. "Dr Bilchik would NEVER spend the time to call someone" was my response. Highly unresponsive to emergency needs. You get the feeling she is doing you a favor by treating you. No customer service mentality. Sad because she is a great doctor

Not much help. I'm still suffering several months later. She saw me one time. Gave me no reason for not wanting to see me again(very odd). She prescribed Neurontin, a useless medication in my opinion with very bad withdrawal symptoms. They don't tell you about the withdrawal symptoms. As far as why she didn't take me on as a patient I have no clue to this day. All I can say is odd.

Larry cont. She's easy to talk too. Spent time explaining the medication and Botox. Possible side effects.... I felt comfortable. I recommend the Headache Clinic in East Hartford Good Luck with your pursuit of relief.

They don't call you back if you have issues with the medication and don't call you back if you are having severe pain. NOT RECOMMENDED at all.

After three years of being a patient the Hartford Headache clinic Dr. Bilchik finally spent 15 minutes with me. I was being treated by one of her RPN's Denise McGrath. They gave me prescription after prescription which caused me to gain massive weight. They also gave me Botox which was not successful. After my last Botox injection, I received a certified letter from Bilchik terminating my care. The woman is extremely rude and I would highly suggest you avoid this practice like they plague.

uncaring, shuffles you off to PA after first appointment while still being required to pay full copay for specialist md, definitely treated like a number. Office staff is rude, insensitive and unprofessional
