office staff uncaring

I waited two months to be seen by this specialist. Two months functioning with excruciating pain, little sleep, heavy duty pain killers and muscle relaxers. A week before my appointment the office called to say they were missing a piece of information from my doctor and cancelling the appointment . My primary care physician was off that day and Dr. Alaimo's office refused to hold my appointment for 24 hours so I could provide the missing information. He may be a good doctor but I won't risk being treated so badly again. I believe every patient deserves better.

Great experience

I have been seeing neurologist since I was a young adult . I have never had a pleasant experience before seeing Dr.Alaimo . From speaking with Jen on the phone prior to appointment to having a EMG test with Dr.Alaimo and his PA . They were very easy to talk to with a great personality and sense of humor . They took their time to explain everything and made me feel comfortable in every aspect .I have two grown children and three grandchildren , I would not hesitate but would almost insist if a neurologist was needed they their only option would be to see Dr.Darrick Alaimo.

IF YOU NEED A NEUROLOGIST, THIS IS YOUR MAN!

No one truly "enjoys" needing a doctor, but Dr. Alaimo is one I would highly recommend. He was extremely thorough and spent an exceptional amount of time sorting through my situation. He is an incredibly gentle spirit and explains what he finds clearly. Dr. Alaimo is backed with an incredible staff that makes a visit to this doctor most calming. BRAVO to you all and my sincere thanks.
