Neurology reviews in Atwood

    Kowell, A P
    I am very impressed with the thoroughness and knowledge of Dr. K. A longtime friend had referred him, and my friend is correct. Dr. Kowell also works at UCLA in neurology and has referred me there for another test. I don't know yet how much everything will cost because I have insurance and have not yet seen all of the billing. I feel secure in recommending Dr. Kowell to others. He has other responsibilities; so he has to change your appointment once in a while (for good reason). Don't expect a slap dash, hurry up exam. He's thorough!! His referrals for tests were for off-site and right there on-site (performed himself).

    Synapse Neurology
    Dr. Kherdyar is probably the best neurologist that I have seen so far. I was pleased with his expertise. He listens very well and doesn't rush me through the appointment.

    Dr Meril S Platzer
    I don t have that much pain any more and previously it was unbearable. I have nerve damage in my neck and lower back. I also have condition called sacroiliac syndrome. She tried several different treatments, till we found one that was working for me. She encouraged me to exercise. She told my husband that I couldn t clean the house anymore after which he took it seriously.

    University of Cincinnati
    In January of 2008, while out of town I had an anyerism rupture in my brain. After brain surgery(out of town) I returned home to Cincinanti where I had to have rehab and followup services provided. I was assigned to Dr. Ringer at UC. I am VERY glad that he was my doctor. Since that time I have had follow up with him. He is extremely talanted and I would have NO problem recommending his services.

    Gehret, Dr. David
    What struck me most was the time Dr. Gehret spent with me to (1) perform the nerve study and (2) explain the results.  After he finished his work, Dr. Gehret and I sat at his computer while he discussed my MRI and his results and conclusions.  It was an incredibly helpful step in my process of deciding what surgery to have done.  I left Dr. Gehret's office very well informed.

    Hanna, Dr. Ahed
    I was very impressed with Dr. Hanna and the entire office. She is smart and gives the patient the time to be heard. I would refer friends to her with enthusiasm.

    Ignacio Carrillo-Nunez MD
    He is an excellent doctor. He is concerned about the patient's well being. If you are honest with him, he can give you a complete and accurate assessment.  He has a wonderful staff. They call and remind you of your appointments. My orthopedic surgeon told me in order to live my life I needed to have my leg amputated. Dr. Nunez refused to sign off on the amputation and even offered to have me go out of state to have my problem solved. He was able to help me save my leg and live my life.

    Bronstein, Dr. Yuri L
    He is personable. He is friendly. He is sensitive and caring. He is very thorough. He listens to not only you but family members; if a family member is concerned about something he will run tests for what they request. The staff is wonderful as well.

    Valerie Acevedo DO
    I was seen by Dr Acevedo, once, during an Inpt admit at Hoag Hospital 6/20/09. When I really needed to have a local Neuro in my corner in 2009 to do the extensive work up needed for what turned out to be a profoundly incapacitating Guillain Barre - AIDP subtype + 3 other conditions simultaneously impacting me. I was not successful despite 2 efforts on my part to try to locate. Neuro Jacob Verghese misdiagnosed me and refused to acknowledge the peripheral neuropathy already present April 2009; Neuro David Gehret was somewhat arrogantly disinterested in helping me June 2009 beyond turfing me to a specialist that I then had to wait 2 mos to get in to see--to this day I couldn't tell you what type of neuro conditions Dr Gehret actually deigns to treat patients for. I don't think Dr A was an In Network PPO provider per my insurer in 2009 but she thankfully is in 2010. I chose to see her because she is an In Network provider for me and I needed to establish with a local Neuro so that I could have someone else to go to as needed without having to schlep into downtown LA. I had to go to Cedars Sinai July 2009 for diagnostic confirmation and treatment rec because the 2 local Neuro's I saw in 2009 were of no help to me whatsoever. A 5 hour round trip commute (d/t traffi) last year for such an appointment I don't ever want to be forced to repeat. I am having symptoms now that involve pain and my inability to have anything approaching functionality and don't know what direction to take to try to address them. Some are due to the nerve damage from the Guillain Barre and some may or may not be more of a rheumatologic nature. Either way, I can't tell so am looking for help in sorting out which is what, who to see next and what options I need to be contemplating. Dr Acevedo has a very small office in a building in Newport Beach that does not have an street number on it that also offers Plastic surgery and UCI Integrative Medicine . No idea if she sees patients in another location or not. Dr A is a DO which is a big plus when looking for someone to put pieces of a complicated puzzle together. Most Neuros have a very narrow focus and will not stray beyond that imposed boundary. She spent more than 1 hour of face time with me and is currently reviewing almost 60 pgs of records I provided for her review because my circumstance is complicated as I had a lot happen to me almost simultaneously last year that currently is adversely impacting me. Dr A actively listened to my responses, asked appropriate questions and said she would review the info I gave her on her own time, create her own time line, consult with another Neuro and Pain Mgnt specialist for feedback then get back to me. I felt she paid attention to me and to what I had to say and I really appreciated her offer to review all the recs I provided before offering me her opinion of what direction I should go. I have already asked my Internist and Chiro to contact her as well in order for her to hear from 2 of my key providers whose opinions I respect. She is caring, she listens well and she is down to earth. It doesn't get much better than that, especially for a specialist. Most will only give a New Patient maybe 15-30 min then it is on to the next patient. She has no arrogance ( a remarkable feat) and she also does neurodiagnostic testing as well (I assume that means Nerve Conduction and EMG studies of which I have had several that were rather painful) - not every Neuro does that anymore. Should that sort of monitoring need to be continued moving forward I can take comfort in knowing she can also provide as necessary without me having to try to get in to see the Neuromuscular specialist at an offsite clinic that is part of UCI Med Ctr who only sees patients 1 1/2 days per week.

    Kolar Murthy MD
    He checked me when I had my stroke. I had several visits with him afterward. He explained things to me. The experience was positive.
