Patient Reviews ? Write a Review
After 4 years of constant headache and no relief at all. Several Dr tried many different things but nothing worked. Dr Eross knew exactly what was going on. He helped me to find enough relief I was able to sleep more than 4 hours at a time. I have not done that in more than three years without waking up with a pounding headache. Any relief at all is an improvement my hope is each day gets better.
I am surprised at the negative reviews. We went to see Dr. Eross for a very rare disorder. We had been to Mayo, Barrow, and Cleveland Clinic and none of them could help us. Dr. Eross, on the other hand, really wants to help. He has reached out to people he knows to try to get into clinical trials; he fit us in when there was an appointment mix up; he listens without interrupting; he has even checked out clinical trials outside of the U.S. that might help. Believe me, we have seen the top neurologists in the U.S., and we love Dr. Eross. He knows his stuff; works hard to help us; follows up in a timely manner; and cares about helping us.
Waited 2 months to see this "specialist" for the same diagnosis/prognosis treatment plan that I had received from my neurologist 2 months earlier - groundbreaking. After filling out 35 pages of paperwork to see him, his office didn't even want any of the other doctors records, journals, or tests that I had bothered to keep in the months leading up to my appointment. He made some basic switches in my medications, pulled me off some natural supplements to put me on a specially compounded supplement that he gets paid to create (with a sample size test study of 27 patients), and just did a really poor job all around. I was very unimpressed.
My relative was his patient. I accompanied her to every appointment. He devistated her life. Due to the medication he put her on she was in a complete fog for years. She couldn't put together a sentance. I felt like I had lost her. Looking back at her charts from the mayo clinic he actually stated that the med had little effect. She was incapable of making the decission to get off of the medication. He later stated that he had tried the medication when he had migraines and didn't like the way it made him feel. I was so angry. She's tried every med over the years. Nothings helped. Medications he put her on caused her to pass out (once while driving), fall over and on and on. He knew the side effects she was having and that she could not tollerate the meds, but would keep her on them. We trusted him for years with her life and he took it away from her. Please request your chart often. He lies. Take these negative reviews to heart. If you choose to see him make sure you have a primary care physician, that you trust, watch his every move.
Do NOT recommend this doctor to anyone!
Dr. Eric J. Eross and Core Institute abandoned me in the middle of treatment. Two days before my scheduled appointment with Dr. Eric J. Eross (for which I had been waiting 2 months), I received a call that my appointment was cancelled because they don't like my insurance. This really left me in a bad way because the medication that Dr Eross had previously prescribed gave me a severe hearing problem as a side effect. I stopped the medication, but the hearing problem persists. Then Dr. Eric J. Eross and Core Institute literally dumped me 2 days before my next appointment. I can honestly say I'm worse off than the day I first walked into the office of Dr Eric J Eross. Clearly they do not care about their patients. This is just disgusting.
I told him the botox made my headaches worse and he said that was impossible. Wanted me to try again (probably for more $$$$$. Pushed his own nutritional tablets. I unfortunately bought a bottle. Checked on the web. Nothing in the tablets but fillers. NOTHING!!!! Big waste of money. Will never go back again.
Dr. Eross is always willing to go the extra mile to help me get better. He explains different options and treatments. Just a very caring DO.
I had had migraines every day for over a year. It started after I had been bitten by a snake: a major physical trauma. I had given up hope. Dr Eross and the other doctors at the Mayo Clinic saved my life. The preventative I was prescribed (Topamax) isn't for sissies...lots of side effects but the migraines stopped. I am grateful and have been for 10 years now that I seldom get a migraine. I had flown to AZ to see DR Eross and he continued to help me long after I'd seen him by guiding my doctor in Texas to continue with my treatment. He is a kind and understanding doctor.
While it took a long time to get a new patient appointment, it was worth the wait. I felt comfortable from the minute I walked in. The staff is great. The office is clean and neat. Dr. Eross was very kind and thorough. I asked a lot of questions and never felt rushed at all. I would definitely recommend him.
Dear Reader,Please learn from my mistakes, doctor Eross is not worth your time. In the year I have been treated by him there has been no relief for my migraines. I saw him following a lawyers advice after a motorcycle accident. In this year I have been prescribed almost 10 medications and reduced to carrying pills around with me all day. His method of treating was to throw meds at me, wait a month and then if nothing happened he would prescribe a different set. During these medications I had seizures, violent mood swings and several other adverse effects (none of which I have ever known before IN MY LIFE). He and his staff would often have me continue the medication even though I told them about the side effects I was experiencing. Today I was informed after a year he would not write a paper stating my future prognosis to close my accident case. However, he will allow my lawyer to interview him for $1200.00 an hour! I am now broke due to bills, still in pain and have had a year of his treatment, he is nothing like any healthcare provider I have ever known. Please, dont relive my experiences, waking up to your loved one crying because you had a seizure thanks to this doctor is NOT something I would wish upon my worst enemy. I have grown up with military doctors, worked with EMS and law enforcement and am currently working in the wake of hurricane sandy, all to receive this information from my lawyer as they dont see fit to call me back. If they would do this to me in the prime of my life I fear what would happen to others.
After years of suffering from migraines, it is wonderful to have Dr. Eross finally help me with them! He explained everything about migraines. He takes as much time as he needs with me. I have to drive almost two hours to get to his office and I never have to wait very long to see him. He explained how the medication would work and how to take it. His office is neat and clean and his staff is very pleasant. I would definitely recommend him!
My mother diagnosed with very serious condition, couldnt find help anywhere, couldnt get answers. Went to Dr. Eross. His office is beautiful but more importantly, his staff is wonderful. Dr. Eross was easy to understand, perfect bedside manners and he listened. I was also impressed that he took time to review her information prior to comming in. He put a plan into place for my mother, and our family is very satisfied. I work for doctors and I would highly recommend Dr. Eross to anyone!
I have seen Dr Eross multiple times. Each time he pushes the expensive vitamins, refuses to listen to symptoms, and prescribes medications I am unable to take due to negative reactions.
I have had horrible chronic migraines and I have finally found a dr who takes the time to listen, looks at my medical history...and puts me on a regiment that doesnt make me feel like I'm on a pignue pig games *aka: the, "oh that med didnt work?" "try this one"..."oh that didnt work either?" "here have this instead."* which has happen way to often in my life. Dr Eross is a breath of fresh air who is on top of the medical break throughs with migraines. I have fianlly found relief to my pain! I am happy becuase Dr Eross is an amazing dr with a genuine personality. I would recommend him to anyone who have lost their faith in Dr's....becuas he will deffiantly make you change your mind...excellent dr's do exsist! And Dr Eross is one of them. :)
Unbelievable. To begin, Dr. Eross is not an MD; hes just a DO. More importantly, however, he is NOT board certified. Nor does he even hold the specialty of Neurosurgeon. Hes just a plain doctor with an attitude. And, Eross is not terribly bright. Review is limited to only 1000 characters. Condensed highlights: Scam. Bait-and-switch. His recommended treatments are not evidence based. Very new-age` pseudo-medical therapies. Profit margins drive treatment options, sometimes to the detriment of patients benefit. Unethical. As close to fraud as one can get without actually crossing the line. I regret enduring the long wait for an appointment. Most bothersome is his lack of privileges at any Valley hospital, despite being in Phoenix for over 15 years. Lastly, while the staff is not particularly helpful, I did rate the office dcor 4 stars. It is dimly lit, quiet and soothing.
Dr. Eross has always acted in a caring and professional manner. He seems very informed about headaches. He gave me a bunch of free reading material about migraines. You can tell that his office has been set up with people that have headaches in mind- it feels more like a spa than a doctor's office. I have migraine headaches and appreciate that they keep the lights dimmed and I have never smelled any obnoxious odors (like air fresheners or cleaning supplies).
Dr. Eross has a several negative reviews on several sites. After my one and only visit with him I wish I had listened to those negative reviews. It is my opinion that what is stated in the other negative reviews is overwhelmingly accurate. Based on his report sbout me, it seems he didn't listen to word I said and I can't understand the reason behind what looks like intentianally inflamatory remarks he made that I beleive will cause me harm elsewhere. In my opinion, he is set up to take your money on initial visit so he can refuse to treat you later. I regret seeing him and suggest you should look elsewhere. In my opinion he makes unjust moral judgements and is arogant. He was a complete waste of time and money.
Very rude staff from the reminder call to the first walk in to the office. The office was pitch black. The doctor had better things to do than see his patience, even though I had waited 3 months for the appointment. The doctor was even rude when asked to make an earlier appointment than another 3 monthes and he could care less. He only out to make money, not to take care of his patients. I am a doctors daughter, I know the diference between a physicen and a want a be. Dr. Eross is a want a be.
This doctor is not interested in any of the patient's previous records, and his mood and affect varied greatly from visit to visit. Sometimes he seemed concerned and interested, and other times didn't seem to remember me from previous visits even though I saw him many times, with never longer than a month between visits. On a couple of visits he became downright angry at the questions I asked him. He never seemed to know what medications he had prescribed for me, the dosage of the medications, or how long I had been on them. Occasionally, I had to tell him to look in his records because he had me on so many meds that I couldn't remember when he had prescribed them. His diagnosis of my disabing headaches changed often, and I never found any relief at all from his treatment. If you have a choice, find a more emotionally stable physician.
At last I have found a doctor who understands the devastating affect of migraine headaches. Dr. Eross is a kind, patient and very understanding man. He used a white board to explain where the pain originated. He told me about all the options- Rx, spinal blocks, surgery and pain management. His office assistant is wonderful. The office is designed for headache pain sufferers. I know I will be able to find relief for my problem with Dr. Eross medical expertise . Thank you Dr. Eross and Aubrey I now have hope.
Before I went to Dr. Eross I had uncontrolled migraines of three times a week. I have been to several neurologist with no success. nothing helped until my PCP recommended Dr. Eross and now my migraines are under control with maybe one migraine a month. Everyone is different it is easy to diagnose. the hard part is figuring what medication combination works for an individual. thank you Dr. Eross
This doctor does not listen or remember you from previous visits. He pushes very expensive vitamins and isn't interested in finding a different medication when the one he favors does not work for you. He needs to be clear up front that he is more interested in alternative medicine than pain relief for someone with migraines.
