A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.

I was admitted to weill-cornell for some tests. Jamieson was on rotation with residents/students. She seemed completely uninterested in me as a patient. I requested a consult from an endocrinologist and an infectious disease. She dismissed me. I told her the IV steroids she had prescribed were making me sick while i was at the hospital. She dismissed me. The steriods made me sicker. At the hospital, Another doctor suggested acute rehab, and in a smug response she said I would not qualify. She told me I had MS. After being discharge from W-C i went to 2 MS centers both said I did not have MS. One said they never would they have put me on steroids wiith the info they had and that i do not have MS but a severe bacterial infection in my CNS. Steroids are contraindicated for infections.
Dr. Jamieson is inattentive and completely out to lunch when it comes to her patients. Considering that a lot of her patients are elderly and may not be able to advocate for themselves, that is a rather scary thought. Simple things like having my current prescription, with the current dosage sent to the pharmacist in a timely manner ,so that I do not run out was too hard for her and her office to handle. I had to bother my primary care to doctor numerous times to get my meds to me because her office would either, not return calls or would get my meds wrong because Jamieson was too busy or was away in Hawaii and could not sign off on my prescriptions. IN terms of diagnosis she seemed to be completely disinterested in learning about me as a patient and why I was having my symptoms. She just wanted to push meds to the highest points it could go and hope it would take care of my symptoms. She was completely blasÃ© about me and the whole situation I was facing. I saw no progress in my health in the year that I was under her care.
I would not recommend anyone to Dr. Jamieson. She barely listens to you, opting to look at her computer instead the entire time. She also, literally, did not believe me when I told her about a behavior that makes my headaches worse. She said it's impossible. (Um, lady, I'm the one with the headache and I know what I feel.) Another thing: Several times when I complained about a certain symptom, she asked me why I thought I was having that symptom. I have no idea! That's why I paid her $300 -- so that SHE should tell me what's wrong with me. She's the doctor, not me. All this aside, she gave me a medicine that did nothing for me and she actually made one of my symptoms worse by urging me to exercise. I would go to a much more caring doctor.
Dr. Jamieson should not be allowed to practice medicine or treat patients. After being brought into the hospital for a two day long migraine that had left me unable to eat, walk, open my eyes, and left me smelling funny things, I was admitted to Weill Cornell. I had come to her hospital because I had undergone the removal of a brain tumor from her hospital the year prior and my migraines were a result of the surgery. Upon seeing Dr. Jamieson, she accused me of being on illegal drugs and said they were the cause of my symptoms. When the tests she administered to me came back clean she accused my mother of doctoring the test results. A resident thought that I may not just be suffering from migraines but from seizures. Dr. Jamieson however, refuted that hypothesis. Due to the severity of my condition and the negative effects of her treatment I was in the hospital for five days. When she came in to the room she talked about me as if I was not even there, and she didn't care. After seeing her, my headaches and smells just got worse. I still tried seeing her when I was released but when I told her things were getting worse she said I was imagining it. When I told her that another doctor of mine said that I should look into seeing whether or not I'm having seizures she said that was impossible. She should have listened to her resident!!!! I ended up going to see another headache specialist. it was he who was able to realize that I WAS having seizures. I had epilepsy as a result of my first surgery. I needed two more surgeries to eliminate the headaches and seizures. I am now finally healthy. She took away years of my life. I don't want her to be able to do that to anyone else
