Excellent neurologist, very informative, takes extra time for my complicated aneurysm recovery case. Office staff excellent, they go the extra mile with prescriptions, appointments, tests.. I highly recommend this doctor as he came with high regards from top neuro surgeons and he has proven to be a great physician working with me balancing my life after neuro trauma, very intelligent, informative and able to understand my individuality and needs.

Patience, caring, listening, acting, diagnosing, resolving... all the things you want in a doctor and their staff!
Friendly dr. Spent a lot of time with me. Would recommend.

I do not recommend this DR. Made a second appointment and wasn't able to make it. The receptionist called me and left a message saying if I didn't call them back to confirm my appointment they would fill my spot. A few weeks later I got a $50 bill from them for a missed appointment. I never called to cancel because her message said she would fill the spot. He now turned it into collections. I've never seen a DR take these actions nor have I ever been charged for not making an appointment.
