Took forever to find out results of tests, had to call office several times.
No follow up. No call back. Numerous calls with no return calls.
DO NOT see this so called Dr. My mother was referred by her Pcp so I trusted he used this practice . I am so angry I can't even think. First of all he only lets one family member in exam room with her. I let that go. Now my mother is having hallucinations and memory loss. I knew it was Alzheimer's. He is so arrogant. He said no it's only Parkinson's. Well she didn't even have the MRI at that point. How can you diagnose someone after one visit? I explained all her symptoms and that 3 people in her family had it. No he said just Parkinson's. Bull. Well the Mri shows Alzheimer's dementia. Oh and did I mention. I had to call for results over almost 10 days later? They didn't call me. And they said no follow up? You drop this life changing diagnosis with us and offer no resources for help? I also had to ask are you going to put her on meds? Is that my job? I have to tell my mother this? Then her pcp doesn't even have results. Then they call a prescription in and don't even let us know? This is complete negligence. The office acted like I was bothering them. When I asked for prescription. She said now I have to re route the call. Listen you can shove it up your butt. Why am I doing your job. I worked as a medical assistant for over 25 years . I know the protocol and how this should be handled. He and his staff are horrible. I trusted her doctor and I shouldn't of. I beg you do not see this practice. There are other neurologists in south hills. Stay away. Would he take care of his mother like this? Please stay away.
Worst doctor I've ever been to ! Condescending and rude.I would not recommend him to anyone.
Having read the reviews, I went in with very low expectations. I'm reality, Dr. Kasdan was very thorough (he examined all of my relevant medical history), and genuinely seemed to respect my thoughts and opinions on the issue. He's a bit terse, and didn't spend a great deal of time, but I really have no complaints.
Doctor was very helpful in my situation of getting my driving license back after my last seizure!!!
I asked to see a neurologist . Dr Kasdan could of cred a less about me . He not only belitled me but also Dr Okonkwo Head of the concussion program at UPMC presby. He spent almost no time examining me. He could care a less about what I was concerned about. He questioned my past therapy.( I mean Belittled ) He treated me like poorly. I am seeking another neurologist to help me and I suggest you do the same.
The Dr. was indifferent and gave me a total inaccurate diagnosis
It was an hour after my appointment time that I actually saw the doctor. He would cut me off in my explanation of the matter I was dealing with. "That's not what I'm asking you. Those details may seem important to you, but they're not really what I'm asking," is what he said. He rushed me through an appointment that I didn't even make. (My insurance scheduled it without asking me if I was even available at that time.)
I went to him today..please take my advice and read the reviews. I read most all the negative reviews and everything said is absolutely 100% true from my experience today. And what dr. Does the exam of a patient with the door open? How is a Dr like this allowed to act this way? I wish I would have had a camera and voice recorder
Dr was the worst I have ever seen. Never once asked me about how I was feeling or what the issue was. He checked my balance told me that I need to go back to work and that's the reason I was there. Then he left the room and was talking about me loudly enough that everyone in the office could hear and said I'm a lier.. he was horrible and I now see how I got an appointment there so quickly while every other neurologist is backed up months. Choose wisely and take my word. Absolute waste of a license. Only got one star because I had to put one there to submit.. it would be negative if possible.
RUDE!!! Oh, and did I mention he's soooooooo RUDE? Angry man, doesn't listen, makes fun of what you have to say, works for comp. companies to belittle you and try to intimidate you. Gets angry if you ask questions and WALKED OUT ON US. Irrational!! Easily shaken. Came in and out of our exam room as he pleased - multiple times, not finishing exam. Prepared report as though he did complete and follow through with out visit. I documented times .. pathetic! I wouldn't even give him or his staff one star, but I had to in order to rate him.
I went to Dr Kasdan for a Workers Comp case that is suffered at work, He called me and all the Dr i have seen liars .... FYI he works for the insurance company make sure you take your lawyer with you when you go see him
I had read many reviews about this dr and they really had me worried. I have nothing but good to say about dr kasdan and his staff.... They went above and beyond for me.... I've been having issues for years. This dr really cared and I am Not going into details on that but I can tell you he was amazing. He is direct, but that doesn't bother me, I consider that a positive thing! Dr kasdan thank you so much for all you did for me..... I'll always be grateful.
I am a registered nurse who had no choice in choosing a neurologist because this involves Workmans comp. I researched before my office visit and thought I was prepared for the experience. No amount of research could have prepared me for this man. I was treated with disrespect and total disregard as a female, as a professional and as a human being. I would rather return to work on a stretcher than risk the chance of being cared for by dr. Kasdan. Please do your research before you make a decision. There are wonderful physicians out there who are both skilled diagnosticians and kind individuals who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated. I was given no choice for 90 days of Workmans comp and I am still in awe that this physician has been aloud to get away this type of behavior. I pride myself in choosing physicians for myself and my family that deliver skilled treatment in a kind manner. I cannot even rate this Dr. Because there isn't a section for less than 0 stars
No good. It seems to be about him more than his patients. Disguisting
Really Doc? After all the people you've helped your gonna run yourself into having a freaking heartattack. Where's the old Dr. Kasdan at? Obviously , you are close to retirement or whatever the case is. Look at your reviews. Not very good doc. Get your pride back and stop letting people mess with your head. Youve taken your frustrations out on the wrong one. Pretty fn deep ehhh?
Seems knowledgeable but he was rude, dismissive and arrogant. i think he looked down on me coz i was paying out of pocket. didn't look me in the eye and no compassion at all. His nurse would just smile and shake her head in agreement. I could kick myself for wasting my money on him.
Dr. Kasdan saved my life. I went to 2 doctors before him, and he quickly diagnosed me with Guillian-barre syndrome, which is extremely rare and can be deadly. He is direct and to the point, and he is thorough and extremely smart. I would recommend him to anyone. If you are trying to get over on someone or are just looking for pain medication or something along those lines then he is not the doctor for you. If you are serious and need a diagnosis that you can trust, then he is the one to see.
This man is rude, abrupt, doesn't listen to your symptoms, and sticks with his initial impressions based on what documentation is handed to him. He is definitely a Worker's Comp dream to dismiss your claim. He spent 15 minutes with me. Tested my reflexes by quickly tapping on arms and legs - without waiting to see a reflex - actually completed that in less than 3 seconds. Whereas my treating Neurologist has a very difficult time finding the reflexes in my arms. Once he writes a report, watch out! I found that half of my report contained inaccurate information and omitted clear evidence. He chose to dismiss my Post-Concussive-Symptoms on the fact that I have a mental health history and am treated for depression. He also told me that my migraine headaches, which were examined thoroughly by a well respected neuro- ophlamologist, at UPMC-Mercy 2 years ago, were nothing more than basically visual disturbances. Thanks to his shotty examination, I was deemed fully recovered from a closed head injury and subsequent neck sprain with degenerative discs. Looking forward to seeing him on the witness stand!
I went to see Dr. Kasdan for cluster headaches, he is a wonderful and smart Dr. with a vast knowledge of clusters!! I will be telling everyone I know if they need a Nero Dr. that Dr. Kasdan is the one. Thank you Dr. Kasdan for understanding me!!
Arrogant, cold, dismisses other doctors diagnosis, gets confused. Not a good choice.
My husband was referred to Dr Kasdan by our PCP. He is very direct and to the point. I know some people would be put off by this.He accurately diagnosed my husband with parkinsons disease. He listens to both the concerns of my husband and myself. He can be considered opinionated. especially if you mention a chiropractor. He does answer all our questions concerning my husbands care.
DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR. Dr. Richard Kasdan has a very loosely run practice. Also the female Nurse that works directly with his patients is extremely difficult and not good with communicating. Very rude, discourteous, and extremely unprofessional.WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

I would not let this mad man treat my dog.
Dr. Kasdan has a very methodical approach to his practice, and also a very direct (almost blunt) approach to telling you what is going to happen next and what he thinks is going on with you. While I appreciate that approach as someone who has a medical background, I can see how it might be intimidating to others. However, I really appreciate how thorough he is when considering a diagnosis and he isn't afraid to say "I don't know what to call this yet, I want to watch you for a while", which to me is a mark of a truly good doctor; he doesn't hastily make a flip diagnosis just to placate the patient and he explains his rationale for everything he does if you ask him. Like I said, I think the reason he gets some lower marks from some reviewers is because if you're not used to his style, he can come across as quite intimidating. However, he can actually be pretty funny once you talk to him for a while, so to anyone put off by him, I would suggest just asking him to slow down or to explain what his thought process is and I think you'll find he is a decent guy and more importantly, a very knowledgeable neurologist.
My husband was referred to Dr. Kasden for a work related injury.We waited for two hours for the doctors ten minute exam. Dr. Kasden was very rude and laughed at my husband when he tried to tell him his symptoms. He started arguing and becoming confrontational for no apparent reason. We were rushed out the door without any solutions.
Kasdan spent my entire visit explaining how my PCP was "just trying to find something to treat" instead of listening to my symptoms. He responded to everything I said with a groan and told me to come back when something was really wrong.
This so called doctor hates work comp! He will put anything down to cause a problem! BEWARE! in and out and then he gets big bucks, sad that he gets away with it.
I was told that my symptoms did not make sense and to save my breath and buy some Excedrin.
Dr.Kasdan was very rude to me! The first thing he said to me was what are you doing here,when there neurologists in your area. Who put you on these medications? Then he did a very brief exam. He asked for my primary care dr.and pyschiatrist's phone numbers. Then he sent my mom and me to the waiting room. He said he would call us back in a few minutes. Ya, right! He just called my mom back. I am adult. I should been apart of the conversation. They would not let me back. He told my mom that I was"mental". What ever that means.I recently found out that he called my primary care dr.on my appt day. My pcp told me that Dr. Kasdan hung up on him.HOW RUDE! Especially since Dr. Kasdan called him.If you get reffered to Dr. Kasdan,PLEASE ASK TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Dr. Kasdan should retire if he doesnt like to help patients anymore.He claimed he looked at my "pictures" but it didnt even look like the envelope was open.
Was very disappointed - he couldn't keep his facts straight about my case - said he was looking at my MRI reports when I could hear him in the next room with another patient - barely did an exam on me - End of appointment was with his nurse - not him - and I was told nothing showed and that my appointment was just a consultation? My case is a workers comp case and they knew things about my employement that obviously came from the corporate office of my employers. So you know who's pocket he is in. What a total waste of time. Also the offices were filthy!!!!!
