Very Knowledgeable, open and compassionate - a rare combination for a physician these days. Open minded and a good listener and an expert in her field. Office staff is absolutely wonderful! I have been a patient for a number of years and she definitely deserves 5 stars!

Five to six weeks for an initial consult kind of renders her practice a non-option for someone needing an initial consult with a neurologist.

Great doctor! My son is away at school and Dr Farrugia had been very understanding with scheduling appointments and addressing any and all issues in a time frame that works for us. Her staff is super friendly and helpful as well. Great bedside manner. We really could not be more pleased.
