Absolutely love him

I spent 38 yrs in search of a good neurologist and finally found one in Dr Southwell. He's smart, informative, empathetic, willing to investigate and dig into the problem, creative with solutions, and best of all has a great sense of humor. I travel 3 hrs each way for my treatments and appointments with him and will continue to do that. Best neurologist I have ever worked with! I would highly recommend him!

I found Dr. Southwell to be a very honest, open and caring physician. He explained aspects of my condition that I didn't know anything about and was very understanding. He always answered my questions thoughtfully and I felt that he was very thoughtful and eloquent in his responses. I would suggest Dr. Southwell to all of my family and friends.
Excellent and compassionate caregiver

Dr Southwell is one of the most compassionate caregivers it has been my privilege to see. The thing that struck me so powerfully each time I saw him was the fact that he is willing to spend time to talk to you and listen to you. I never felt rushed, I never felt dismissed or dis-regarded by Dr Southwell. I feel like his grasp of medicine was thorough, and he merged my medical issues with the neurological issues for which I was seeing him seamlessly and appropriately.
He is very thorough.

My husband has neuropathy in both legs. Dr. Southwell was recommended by a friend and we first started seeing him April 2017. Our first visit with him was excellent. He was very thorough and explained everything very well. He gave us time to ask questions and he answered in a very straight forward manner explaining in detail what was happening. Because we and he did not yet know the cause of the neuropathy he ordered extensive blood work and did and EMG. One of his labs came back abnormal and that helped to discover the underlying disease. Had he not have been so persistent and meticulous I suspect this would not have been discovered in it's early stages. We would highly recommend him and we will continue to see him. The medication that my husband is not on has helped his neuropathy pain immensely and we are grateful to Dr. Southwell for his help.

He was a good listener who took time to listen. I felt comfortable with him and am confident in diagnosis and plan for treatment. I would recommend him to family and friends.

This was by far the worst experience I have had in medicine. He was clearly clueless as to my symptoms & was "waiting them out" to see what developed. As things got rapidly worse without his intervention, we became very concerned and sought a second opinion. The EMG was by far the worst I had ever experienced and was very painful (EMG's should NOT be painful, this was likely because he was not directly over the nerve & needed a much higher level of stimulation to get a response). Needless to say, the next physicians I went to were appalled at the mistreatment and lack of knowledge/concern by this provider and the readings from the EMG. Not only would I NOT recommend him, I would advise my own family members or friends to steer clear of this physician at all costs.

I recently was in the hospital and Dr.Southwell came to visit me. After I was released I was told to call the office and schedule a follow up appt. The gentleman that answered the phone was very helpful and was very nice. The Nurse showed great care and was very nice to me as well. Dr. Southwell spent over 1 hour with me and gave me details on all information. I was highly satisfied. The staff and Dr. Southwell seem to have a great relationship and laugh together. This is not normally seen in most doctors office. I will FOR SURE return for my next visit!
