Amazing Doctor ! Well rounded . The nurse is so rude and aggressive .
Love his office and nurses and he seems like a nice person but he doesn't seem very knowledgeable about the human body. Gave this doctor more than 1 chance but he's not someone I can trust with my health.
I am sorry to hear that your experience was not good . I am fully dedicated to provide the best care to all my patients , based on the guidelines of the American Academy of Neurology. My practice is not based on patient's wishes and unrealistic expectations. It is based on evidence based medicine to provide the best care possible to the patient's.
