  • Neurology

    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.

Failure to Communicate. Lack of Respect.

Arrogant, argumentative, confrontational. Uncooperative. Would not admit that he was unfamiliar with a 'possible' diagnosis already made by numerous others. He chose to argue the subject matter with me make me go through a huge battery of exams that I had already gone through. Pages of notes, findings, and conclusions already given to him. Had to come back a second visit where he still would not agree and chose to send me to a different Dr. who was more familiar with the subject. He could have learned something from me about my years of experience with it. Instead he argued and wasted my time before he would admit only off handedly that he didn't know the subject.

Asking for a diagnosis of (Stiff Person Syndrome)

I would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone. He hadn't even reviewed my chart before I saw him. The information found within his visit summary was full of half-truths. He didn't even touch one of my muscles. He probably has never diagnosed demyelinating disease nor stiff person syndrome. before. He minimized the condition of my spine calling it "mild". My entire spine is degenerating, that is why I go to a pain clinic every three months. Was anxious to get my visit over with. Then on top of this, his staff faxed me a copy of his report without calling me first. All I had asked for was a copy of my appointment confirmation for keeping track of my medical absences. Not only that, he sent a copy of this bogus report to my Internist and current Neurologist. Don't go to this doctor. It is a waste of your time.

Dr Floberg was so kind and caring during my visits. He helped set up additional screening, took my concerns seriously, and helped find answers to all my question. The staff in the clinic are open and friendly. I have never had to wait more than 5 mins past my appointment time to be seen, usually called back early!!

His diagnosis was way off--he caused untold suffering by prescribing a drug that was not needed. He missed three key diagnoses found by a subsequent neurologist, and the diagnosis he gave was inaccurate. He did no further neurological testing to affirm or deny what he diagnosed at the beginning. I would not recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Floberg is a very knowledgeable neurologist in regards to headaches and the different ways to treat them. He was able to get me in extremely quickly, was very patient, and explained everything extremely well. Additionally, he returns calls in a very expedient manner and has a great memory when recalling past patient history.
