Outstanding pediatric neurologist! I have had way too much experience with pediatric neurologists. Not many of those experiences have been positive ones. This is the first time we have been to a neurologist who gets down on my son's level, talks to him and not through him, listens to my son and what he has to say and makes my son feel special, important and normal instead of a kid who has some different neurological issues. His office is warm, friendly, fun for kids and relaxing for parents. This is the first time I have not dreaded our neurologist visits. I highly recommend Dr. McIntosh to anyone needing a pediatric neurologist.
I can't say enough positive things about our experience while visiting Dr. McIntosh's office. We came in as worried parents with lots of questions and concerns. Dr. McIntosh took his time to to view our daughter scans and discuss with us what he was seeing. He was able to explain things in a manner which we were able to understand easily. It's refreshing to have a doctor that will listen to your concerns and encourage questions. Besides being very warm and friendly, the staff was knowledgeable and efficient with setting up test and appointments. The added bonus was the child friendly office waiting room.
My daughters pediatrician Dr Shannon recommend Dr Macintosh after we found out she was having seizures. Dr Macinstosh was very caring and took his time diagnosing my daughter. He gave us hope and a great plan for the future. A few years later my daughters epilepsy took a turn. After many tests and medication changes Dr Macintosh put his heart and soul into helping my daughter. My daughter had a 0% chance of driving, along with many other things, and now because of Dr. Macintosh my daughter is driving and has been completely seizure free for over a year. I am beyond thankful for Dr. Macintosh and the things he has done to help my daughter and our family. He truly cares and wants to help his patients and I highly recommend him. He is such a caring kind person and I cannot express how grateful I am for all his help, hope, and guidance.
Dr. Andrew McIntosh came highly recommended to us. I was impressed with the efficiency of the office staff and the thoroughness in which Dr. McIntosh evaluated my son. After evaluating him, he had a plan and set it in motion and he was great at listening. I was also grateful for the receptionist who quickly scheduled my son after hearing about the symptoms he was having. Instead of us having to wait two months, she fit us in the next week.
I really liked that dr. McIntosh talked with me before he talked with my son. He listened to my concerns, and I felt like he listened carefully to everything I had to say. He got down to my sons level when he talked with him. The appointment was easy, my son wasn't scared or nervous. I enjoyed being able to talk and feel like I was heard. The only thing I did not like was how long it took me to get the appt. They were scheduled a few months out.
So amazing to find a neurologist that is thorough, caters to your needs and is extremely kind. Dr McIntosh and his entire staff are friendly & helpful and go above and beyond to help you with whatever you need. He was fantastic with my son and explained everything very clearly that made it easy to understand. I wouldn't go anywhere else & I thank him and his staff for a fantastic experience
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! My daughter had her first appointment with Dr McIntosh yesterday! Two of her current doctors recommend him, so we made the hour and half drive. I didn't have high hopes...we typically leave a Dr appointment with no answers, no plan and lots of tears. Yesterday was the first time any Dr had given us any hope! Dr McIntosh, was thorough, kind and most importantly had a plan to start helping our daughter! He was not rushed and spent as much time as we needed to answer any questions. No, he does not take PPO insurance, but I don't care! You will pay any amount of money if someone can actually help your children! I will continue to pay out of pocket and drive the hour and a half, because it is beyond worth it!! If your on the fence about taking your child to see him....just do it! You will not be disappointed
It is my pleasure and honor to express my deepest and most heartfelt appreciation for the kindness, professionalism and excellent care that Dr. Andrew McIntosh provides my son and our family. Dr. McIntosh achieves this exceptional recommendation based on his patient care by going above and beyond by providing the best care for our son. The sensitivity and support of Dr. McIntosh and his fine staff help us through all of the medical details while remaining focused on providing the highest and best quality of care. We have had the pleasure of being patients of Dr. McIntosh for nearly 7 years and it has been our privilege to be recipients of his excellence care. And it is without hesitation that I provide Dr. McIntosh with the highest, most valuable, excellent recommendation for every aspect of him, his staff and his entire practice. Thank you Dr. McIntosh!
What a blessing to have found Dr. McIntosh so close to home. Even If we lived hours away I would still be driving to see him for my six year old son. Our first visit today was wonderful from start to finish. The ladies in the office are kind, helpful and very friendly, not just on the phone but in person also. They make you feel so welcome in the office! Dr. McIntosh is just so amazing. He has a gentle, kind and loving manner. He was amazing with our son and with us (the parents) as well. He has an incredible understanding of children and it shows in everything he does from evaluation to diagnosis and explaining in clear terms the steps that need to be taken next. I can't stress enough how wonderful Dr. McIntosh and his office staff have been. What could have been a very anxious time for all of us turned out to be a beneficial and wonderful experience.
Dr. McIntosh is the best there is!! We started noticing some issues with our daughter and after looking at hours of scary reviews I came across Dr. McIntosh. The reviews calmed my anxiety but those only go until it meets reality. And the reality turned out that the reviews were all true. The office staff was everything you would want from an office staff. They were efficient, friendly with not only myself but with my daughter and my son. So I called to see how it would be to make an appt. I told one of the office staff what was going on and where I lived. It was a little distance away. She asked me some questions which showed she was on top of things. Then she asked if she could check with the doctor. She came back and she said he wanted an EEG done right away. They had their tech come in special for my daughter the next day. The EEG was done with ease and the tech was visibly skilled at what she did. When I had first gotten there with my kids the doctor came over and asked if this was Emma sweetly with a smile towards her and then introduced himself by his first name only! I was totally blown away. The next day we came in to see him and he was already fully versed in the results of the EEG. He sweetly told my son and daughter that he was going to take mom and dad into the other room to talk to them but everything is good. It's no big deal. He sat down and discussed in detail how the brain works as far as the results of the EEG and what our results were. We asked questions and he talked with us like he was sitting in our house with no other appointments in his day. It so allowed me to hear what he was saying and to think of what questions to ask. We weren't rushed at all. He answered many of my many questions before I even asked. He then asked if there was any other questions. He then brought Emma into the room and spoke with her. My daughter is shy with strangers but he was so sweet with her talking directly to her. I could not believe this type of doctor still exists. When it's a doctor for your kids, you can't think of having anyone that is not top of the line. Well Dr McIntosh is the best of any doctor I have ever met and I have seen many doctors with myself and my parents. He and his staff should get awards for how they treated us. So I will be posting this review anywhere I can find a spot!
I consider my son to be borderline ADD, so it is hard for us to truly know if medication is the right answer. Dr. McIntosh has given us perspective and options.
Dr. Mcintosh is a wonderful doctor, and very good with our 14 year old son, diagnosed with Aspergers and ADHD. He takes the time to listen to my concerns, and is so knowledgable in his ability to describe different meds and help choose the best ones for our son. I am thankful to have him as our sons doctor.
Wow!! Friendly front office. It's our first time to this office And we were greeted so kindly upon entering. Usually you meet the dr. While your in the waiting room, but we were introduced to Dr. Mcintosh in the waiting room. He was wonderful reassuring my daughter that this was a painless appointment. It put her more at ease as she was a bit nervous.
My teenage daughter has recently been diagnosed with a genetic disease and, as a result, we have been seeing many specialists. Many of the Dr's do not understand her condition and don't take the time to understand her myriad of issues. But, not Dr. McIntosh. My daughter was so relieved to have someone listen to her and really want to try and help her. He gave her some realistic things to work on to improve her symptoms and explained everything to her in a way that she could understand it. My daughter and I are very happy to have Dr. McIntosh help manage her care and wish other Dr's were as compassionate.
My experience with Dr. Mcintosh has been a good one. He has made a very helpful plan for my son who is on the Autistic Spectrum that not only benefits him but me too. I'm thankful for his online resources especially his videos explaining Autism Spectrum, ADD, and other disorders. Check them out if you have questions.
Dr. McIntosh relates well to my children during their check-ups, and is very helpful in working with us to empower our kids to excel at school. He is patient and kind. I also appreciate that the wait time at his office is always less than 10 minutes and that parking is free and easy to access.
My daughter has had epilepsy since she was 2 years old. We have seen a number of neurologists in the Orange County area. Dr. McIntosh has been the only doctor to actually have a good bedside manner and make my daughter feel that she is not defined by her epilepsy. He encourages her to take advantage of all life offers her and not let her epilepsy stop her from anything. When she had her last seizure, he called me back within the hour! In the past, I would wait days after her seizure to get a return phone call. I am totally confident with Dr. McIntosh's medical advice and treatment of my daughter. I would not go see any other neurologist!!
Dr. Mc Intosh has always given me great care and is the best neurologist I've seen. His work has allowed me to live a normal life again and I cannot thank him enough.
He was friendly and good interacting with my son. Friendly staff. The only thing was that I did not get the full 90 min.-about 15 min short
We travel from Yorba Linda to see Dr. McIntosh. By far, he is the best doctor our son has. He gives us honest answers and works with us to find solutions for our son. If we call or email, he responds in a timely manner. I love the fact he remembers my son and his history every visit. Angie in his front office is the sweetest lady and always just as helpful. I would recommend Dr. McIntosh to all parents. On a side note, every therapist and specialist I have told that my son is seen by Dr. McIntosh has had nothing but excellent things to say. He is a well respected doctor by many.
Love Dr McIntosh! We drive from Corona just to see him. He always takes time to explain everything. I never feel rushed and always feel informed. He even offer's EEG's in his office now. We have been seeing him for over 3 years.
I have been trying, unsuccessfully, for almost a year now through my son's insurance to get some assistance for his ADHD and ODD. I finally went to Dr. McIntosh's office and for the first time feel like I have a plan for success with my son. He was thorough with myself and my son. He spent an hour and a half with us and gave me tons of resources to help my son thrive. Thank you so much.
I needed a diagnosis for my 5 year old daughter. He was able to evaluate her and provided me that. He also wrote out a complete list of things to do for her such as labs and resources for various therapies. I have never met another doctor who does that! Made me feel like I now have the resources and steps to take to begin her care.
Dr.MacIntosh is an excellent neurologist. We are so happy with him that we would rather pay for our visits out of pocket than use a caregiver that is contracted with our HMO network. He is worth every cent and IMO it's a small price to pay in exchange the level of service and care he provides.
We have taken our son to Dr McIntosh several times. He is a amazing Doctor. Friendly staff,kid friendly office. Very professional. My son loves him. We would highly commend Dr McIntosh.
I finally have a clear picture about what is going on with my son..... Dr McIntosh took time with our family and explained so much to us. I finally for the first time in 7 years have the answers that I needed. The other doctors we have seen never really made sense. Dr McIntosh has a amazing way with the kids. His calmness and clear way of speaking was a breath of fresh air!!!! I am so blessed to finally have a doctor for my son that he actually gets excited to go see! His office is beautiful. Staff is sooo friendly! The office has a great Lego table for the kids. We are very blessed to have Dr. McIntosh to provide such amazing care for our son.
Dr. MacIntosh uncovered a rare genetic disorder in our 15 month son that was missed or misdiagnosed by other Dr's through CHOC. We are grateful for Dr. Macintosh's discovery as it led to early intervention and treatment options through other medical specialists, even though the condition is not curable. We've been to Dr. MacIntosh for follow-ups and we never waited in the lobby and he always explained things in full, taking as much time as necessary. Also, I love that we have always been able to get appointments fast (within a week or two) and not wait forever like all the other Dr's at CHOC! We trust and value him as a pediatric neurologist and highly recommend. To my knowledge, he does not take insurance, but we feel the extra cost has been well worth it.
Great experience - terrific doctor with good bedside manner. Very kind to our daughter. We had a bad experience with a previous neurologist and Dr. McIntosh was able to answer all our questions. Highly recommended. Nice clean office with plenty of activities. Long wait list though.
I recently took my six year old daughter to Dr. McIntosh after taking her to other doctors who couldn't help her. Dr. McIntosh spent alot of time with her and me answering all my questions. I never felt rushed or felt like he was pushing drugs on me for her. His follow up care was just as good as the first visit. I would HIGHLY recommend him for anyone with a child that has any neurologial problems.
We got there and waited about 20 mins to see Dr. Mcintosh, which was not an easy feat with a 2 year old in a super tiny waiting room. They did have a train set, but that got old quickly. The doctor was nice enough, but the consult lasted only 20 mins. in his tiny office with only a few toys. My son was kind of going bonkers. He only spent a few mins with my son before diagnosing him with mild-moderate autism. I had my suspicions that my son had autism, but it's such a serious label to put on a child after spending only a few mins and asking a few questions. He did answer my questions.
