One Star

How many stars would you give to a "dr" whom says is a neurologist, when I went to see him because I have more than 18 months with half of my face numb, half of my head hurts 24/7, my eye is swollen, and painful, and all he said was" I'm not a pain doctor, go with your primary doctor, your cardiologist or I don't know, I can't do anything for you", ( it was the last time I saw him) the second time I went to his office he sent me down stairs for a blood test ( I didn't know that I needed authorization) nobody called me to give me the results, he gave a prescription for therapy I never received the authorization and when I called he said that he never send for therapy and I had the prescription in my hand, etc., etc., if I continue I'm not going to have enough space, I gave him 1 star because there is no option to give him 0 stars, he is racist in my opinion because I'm Hispanic , I feel humiliated, he even asked me to show him my driver license ( to compare the picture with my face now) and he said" oh no this picture is to old, you were to fat here, or you loose weight", do you think he deserve more than 1 star?, is he a doctor?.

patient

really bad bed side manner! would not want a sick person to ever see this guy. no compassion no sympathy; he's just there to earn some money for living. i don't even think he's all that knowledgeable about the field of neurology.

I totally disagree with the last review. Dr. Emanuel thoroughly explained everything and took the time to do a very complete examination.
