It was such a horrible first-time experience to have to go in there and deal with the unprofessionalism of that office the staff is horrible his wife runs the front desk and she has no I mean no sense of professionalism in customer service she needs to seek a new career because she's very Petty Betty for someone to go in the office and ask one question you get so upset you go and leave them waiting at the front desk for a good 30 to 45 minutes it's terrible customer service

I would NEVER REFER MY WORST enemy to him the staff in the office is HORRIBLE. My son has epilepsy and they played with his life. I would not give his office not even a half a star.

He doesn't have that much equipment to test people
in Sacramento, CA |
He is a highly knowledgeable professional neurologist. Such doctors are very rare always. It could be the result of his more than thorough education, first in the best school in the Soviet Union, then here in the United States. He also has a sincere wholehearted approach for every one of his patients. Takes the time each patient needs, which is why his office runs behind schedule sometimes. He REALLY takes the time each patient needs. And he REALLY is the most knowledgeable neurologist Ive seen
