  • The initial visit was ok. I will say on the verbal test, which I assume was testing memory and awareness that when I answered incorrectly he would make a face until I answered correctly. I'm not sure if that is how it is supposed to work. After some other tests and talking with me at length he felt I had moderately extreme carpel tunnel syndrome. He ordered a follow up test. The test was prompt and confirmed the diagnosis. He told me the nurses would give me a prescription for a brace that I needed to wear and to follow up with him and let him know how I was doing in two weeks. The nurses said there were no prescriptions that I should just go find one at a CVS or Walgreens. After two weeks I called back and left a message that I was still in quite a bit of pain. I was told the doctor would call me back. About a week later I received a call from a nurse asking if I was ready to schedule surgery. Surgery was never discussed as an option during any of my appointments. I told the nurse we had not discussed surgery and that I thought that was a little abrupt since the doctor had never even called me back. She said she would talk to the doctor and call me back. Two weeks later I received another call asking if I would like to come in again. I told them that due to their lack of response I would not be returning to this office. Approximate cost listed below is a copayment.

  • Dr. Newman's staff and office were easy to deal with.  They, including the Dr., were all punctual, which is something I like a lot.  Dr. Newman worked on treating my issue, but it is not resolved.  That part's not his fault, as this has been an ongoing thing for years.  One thing that was a struggle is communicating w/ Dr. Newman.  He appeared to be listening, but he would bring up questions repeatedly, even though I'd answered them several times.  He was pleasant and seemed interested in helping, but at times it was as if we were speaking a different language.

  • First of all, he's very quiet. Verrrrryyy quiet. So don't expect Dr. Personality. But he listens well and he explains his diagnosis well. He told me much more than the neurosurgeon had and gave me him a diagnosis to go by. He was very thorough in his exam. That was impressive. He didn't just go through the motions.
    One thing on the bad side. As part of my problem I had tremendous shoulder pain. He told me to keep it immobile as much as I could, even in a sling.

  • Dr. Pedregal is very knowledgeable and interested in his specialty. Even though there was not a definitive reason for my seizure Dr. Pedregal spent a lot of time educating me as to all types of things that can cause seizures. He was very thorough and put me at ease by simply explaining that not all seizures occur for clear reasons but also arming me with enough information about possible risk factors of a repeat seizure.

  • Went very well. Ended up I have a herniated disc in my cervical spine which is compressing my spinal cord. He recommended traction and therapy. I am symptom free today. He advised no surgery unless I was in pain and could not handle the pain. He is very precise, and I highly recommend him.

  • He is an encyclopedia of medical diagnoses. He has mastered so much and as we go through a diagnosis, he paints such a clear picture of what he is thinking. I have had neurologic problems and I have been to neurologists who were good, but he is amazing.

  • I met him in the hospital.  He was absolutely wonderful in the hospital.  He was wonderful then.  He has been wonderful ever since.  He is funny as can be.  He is an older gentleman.  At one point in time he told me he was in his late 60's or late 70's.  He or his colleagues see patients in the office only on Mondays.  He sees people in the hospital.  He is a headache specialist and a meningitis specialist.  He is a retired air force doctor so he doesn't cut anybody any slack.  He lays it all out on the line until you hear exactly what you want to hear.  I just love that about him because he doesn't play around.  You cannot have for anybody more experience than he has.  He is very knowledgeable.  He can size you up in just a minute.  He knows exactly if you are trying to pull his leg or if you are not being honest with him.  He has so much knowledge.  It's just amazing the knowledge base that he has.  If I hadn't met him when I did, I don't know what I would have done with these headaches and with the meningitis.  I don't even know if I would have been alive.  When I went in to the hospital, the CAT scans proved that I am 43 years of age and I had already had CAT scan changes in my brain because of the meningitis.  He felt that I had had a stroke because of the meningitis.  The people in the hospital didn't know I was having it.  If it hadn't been for him, I would probably have been in a vegetative state somewhere.  He is only available on Mondays unless he is on the call for the hospitals.  If you are not flexible enough to be there on a Monday, then that could cause a little bit of a problem.  The office environment is very good.  He is at USF so sometimes the second floor is also the same floor as pediatrics.  If you have headache issues, you are on the same floor as babies crying, but the staff is very good about trying to get you back quickly.  I have never had to wait in his office.  The staff is very friendly.

  • I only went the one time after an auto accident, but never had a reason to go back. With my one visit I was very happy with him. I have no complaints at all. His bedside manner was great, and he was very willing to explain things to me.

  • I went to several neurologists for my stroke and they told me several things, but Dr. Albakri did another test and diagnosed that I had brain aneurysm.  So he saved my life and I love him.  He is very thorough, has his own equipment in his office and does it all right there, instead of going elsewhere.  He is wonderful and I will use him again in the future.

  • I haven’t used their health center, but I have used their facility. I have always been very happy with them. They are efficient and caring. Overall, it’s a pretty good experience. You feel like you are getting the best care there. It has been about six months or so since I have used them. They take time to listen and explain. There is no rushing around and nothing like that. I didn’t have a problem with the billing. It’s worth the trip going there.
