Was able to get my mother scheduled in for an appt right away and from the moment we walked in and met with Dr Ironside He dealt with my mom like he would if it had been his own mother sitting there.. He was kind, extremely patient, very explanatory and acutely aware of how scared/worried my mother probably was. Although we did not like the reason we were there, we couldn’t have asked for a better Dr to be handling the situation.
I have read the reviews here and I would like to say, he is very patient, understanding, and overall pleasant. He has listened to what I say and I must say, I am fully impressed. I have not waited more than 5 minutes for an appointment after my arrival. As a matter of fact, today I was 15 minutes early and I went straight back. I am glad he is my neurologist.
Dr Ironside is ALWAYS on time; yet, I have never felt rushed during an appt. He listens to questions and answers those questions without being condescending, which is refreshing. He has been good about discussing with me options for treating a difficult medical condition. He was an effective advocate when (an unaffiliated) hospital about to do an MRI on my brain repeatedly messed up his orders. He is blunt, but that is fine. I appreciate that. I want to be treated like an adult, get the information I need and get out of the doc's office. I do not leave his office confused or with unanswered questions. There is no magic cure for my medical condition. Dr Ironside is quite competently helping me monitor and deal with it, which is what I need and all I really can ask. He is not going to host a pity party for me. I think I would lose it if I ever went into his office and said that my lot in life was sad and he agreed. That's not to say he does not inquire about my "mental state" at my appts. He does regularly ask how I am feeling, because people with my condition do get depressed. I just appreciate the fact that he is not encouraging me to be despondent. He is appropriately humorous and seems not to be easily shocked. Various indignities accompany my condition. A little humor here and there when discussing those indignities is nice. He is a great doc.
