I have severe peripheral neuropathy and have had excellent care while living in NJ. I now reside full time here and this was my first appointment with Dr. Silvers. He was a graduate of Princeton University, Tufts Medical School, and his neurology residency was at Harvard. He spent one hour and 15 min with me, was extremely thorough in his history documentation, proposed some innovative solutions to my problems and was a sincere, caring, competent physician. I highly recommend him to any of my friends inquiring about a neurologist.
Dr. Michael Fitzpatrick
I have been working with Dr. Jeff Gelblum and his staff since January of this year. He has saved my life!!
I was experiencing a full onset of Parkinson's Like symptoms just out of the blue. He treated me right away, did extensive tests, and determined how I can now manage a Parkinson's like tremor or twitch, BUT with his expertise, my condition is manageable! Thank you, Dr. Jeff! You are my Angel of Mercy!!!
Dr. Senzon is a great doctor. He takes his time with his patients, does his best to get to the bottom of what may be ailing you and never pushes medications at all. When he is needed or something is needed from his office, they are very responsive. He is the best neurologist I have gone to.
Dr. Almeida El-Ramey is patient and a great doctor. She has the right answers to all the questions I've asked about my epilepsy. No matter how many patients she has, she always finds a way to speak to every one of them.
Dr. Pinzon is incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. He listens to my concerns and also tries to ensure that all of my questions are addressed. He had taken care of me through diagnosis through several medication adjustments and I know that he's got my back.
Shannan Dooley Carmona
Best doctor I've ever had! Diagnosed with MS when I was 32 by him moved to Atlanta when I was 34. I am turning 48 this year. I have not found a doctor and staff as of yet that made me feel at ease about my illness as much as they did.
Dr. Damsky saved my son’s life in February 2017 by starting his treatment immediately. He is fully recovered and we are here for follow up today.
After falling off my bike and suffering a concussion, I ended up with vertigo. I dealt with it for almost 3 months and finally was told about Dr. Faradji. He was a life changer! I found out I had vertigo in both ears and after my first appt, I felt almost normal again!! He was extremely thorough and I highly recommend him and the entire First Choice team.
I have new onset MS and I couldn't be happier to have had Dr. Herskowitz through it all. In the middle of a global pandemic, he was compassionate, caring and attentive. He helped me a great deal during my stay at the hospital and shortly thereafter. If I could give 10 stars I would.
