He found a brain tumor looking for reasons why I have shakes, according to him aren't related and more likely anxiety,after one test last year he said "your fine" as he literally ran out of the room. My normal dr. Wanted me to see him for a recommendation of an anxiety drug or something else to help after Lexapro made my anxiety worse,he gave no information and told me to see a psychiatrist. This after I told him I was seeing a psychologist for anxiety already. I know someone who has seen this guy also and said he had a crappy attitude so they never went back to him. I understand a doctor can be busy and we can all just become numbers but I truly believe this "Richard"doesn't care.

We arrived for our appointment 2 minutes early according to my daughters cell phone, their clock said 3 minutes late. When we filled out the paperwork and completed it within 5 minutes, the doctor refused to see us saying that we had arrived late. The clinic documented the arrival time as 3:33 for a 3:30 appointment. If you are going to cancel appointments for that discrepancy in time, you should not be a physician. My daughter has suffered with headaches and really needed to get in to see a neurologist. I am appalled that Dr. Dove would refuse to see a patient under those circumstances. Apparently his time is far more valuable than the needs of patients. I would not schedule an appointment with this doctor if this is how he cares for his patient. Extremely disappointed!!!!

If you want a great doctor who is kind and treats you like an adult, I highly recommend Dr. Dove. He trained at the Mayo Clinic for many years and it shows in his bedside manner. He really is a gem.

This is the most thorough specialist I have ever been to. His accent is a bit strong, but once you take a quiet moment to listen you will find that he is exceptionally compassionate and an excellent Dr.

Professional and courteous and gentle. Staff are great too. Glad I found Noran and they are easier to set up appointments, longer wait for appointments at other clinics.
thumbs up for Noran, not so much for Dr Dove

While my experience with the Noran Clinic was as efficient and easy as I have ever experienced, my interactions with Dr. Dove left a lot to be desired. I was in pain and took the first available appointment with any available doctor and ended up seeing Dr. Dove. I would describe his bedside manner as disengaged, uninterested, and flat out awkward. Based on some preliminary tests done by Dr Dove, we scheduled an MRI for a couple days later. That could not have gone better, again the Noran staff shined during this test. However when it came time to get my results from Dr. Dove, I was less than impressed. He took a minimal amount of time to explain results. When I tried to ask questions to clarify things further, answers were short and I got the feeling Dr. Dove was irritated having to even attempt to answer them. I left that appointment confused and with plenty of unanswered questions. I ended up getting the test results sent to me and then took them to another Doctor to have things properly explained as well as getting real answers to my questions.
Found the problem when others didn't

I had been doctoring with back pain and leg weakness for about six weeks before seeing Dr. Dove. He sent me for a spinal tap, and MRI followed, and the problem was discovered and a course of action prescribed. I have felt that Dr, Dove cared about me, about my situation, and wanted to do what was best for me. When I was still have trouble, he was willing to see me again after the neurosurgeon had said there was nothing more they could do. Dr, Dove is comforting and kind. He's the best!
Years a patient

I have been seeing Dr. Dove for many years. He is kind nurturing, and comforting. I have had debilitating migraines for 25 years, he has been the only one to do a CT. When they get out of control he gets me in imediately for treatment and this only happends every 2 years, but he's on it. Otherwise he has me on the right meds.

Weeks later, we still wait for answers while Dr. Dove writes prescriptions that don't work. Noran has been disappointing.
