5 star Doctor!

I have had many Doctors in my medical journey and I can honestly say that Gilda Tafreshi is by far my favorite. If I had things my way, she would definitely be my primary care doctor. Not only is she well educated and thorough in her work but she is very compassionate with the best bedside manner I have ever known a doctor to have. My only regret is trying to find other doctors that can fill her shoes. For those who are wondering why she is no longer my Doctor, its because my HMO does not cover the new clinic she now works at. So if you need a Neurologist, look no further. She is definitely the ONE!

Great Neurologist

I had a very bad experience with a different neurologist. I was afraid to go to another neurologist after that. However, when I went to Dr. Gilda Tafreshi, she was such a breath of fresh air! I am a nurse, and know a great doctor when I meet one. She was thorough, kind, listened completely, and went over my entire history along with me. She is professional, great bedside manner, and came up with some solutions for us to work on together. She will work with you. I am so happy to have met her and to have her as my neurologist now. She also spent the needed amount of time with me. I appreciated that. Don't hesitate to go to her.

Five Stars

I am so glad I found Dr. Tafreshi. She has helped me so much. I started going to Dr. Tafreshi for horrible vertigo and migrianes. She has treated me with respect and takes time to listen to me at all of my appointments. She understands what I am going through and she works with me, with my input, on how to treat me and move forward. She listens to what my concerns are and makes alterations on my medications based on what those concerns are. She is very attentive and follows up with me. My vertigo has completely gone away and my migraines and getting so much better. I am so thankful for Dr. Tafreshi and her wonderful staff!!!
