Very through doctor

Dr Nally is working with two of my children, one with Mild Autism and ADHD, the other with ADHD and a processing disorder. Dr Nally clearly went over my sons disabilities, what the cause and effects were and what is happening in the brain. I feel very comfortable with him, he is highly respected by his peers and patients. Yes, he takes a bit to get used to. If he's asking your child a question, he doesn't want the answer from mom or dad. That makes sense when he's evaluating the child. I felt so comfortable with the entire practice that I am seeing Dr Barash for my adult ADHD.

Wonderful doctor! Best neurologist I have ever had!

Dr. "Nally" is awesome. He was my pediatric neurologist for over a decade. He even let me continue to see him as an young adult (21) because he wanted to follow me as he did with some of his challenging cases. He was very encouraging to me each time I had setbacks with seizures that led me to lose my license, jobs or break a bone. I cried many times in his office. He worked hard with me to try different med. combinations. He pushed me to keep up my grades in high school and then college. He wrote me a recommendation for a scholarship as he did for many of his patients. I think he is a wonderful doctor and person! It was often hard to schedule appts. with him, as he teaches at Yale School of Medicine, rotates between several medical offices, AND sees patients at Bpt. Hospital. But his patients wait patiently because many understand that most cases of epilepsy are idiopathic. Gaining seizure control if possible, can take a very long time and it is important to find the best doctor.

Although I would describe his bedside manner as an acquired taste for some, it took very little time for us to warm up to him. He is a wonderful doctor, with a remarkable sense of humor. He squeezed us in for an appointment (at 6:45 p.m. on a Friday evening) and was the only person left in the office long after the rest of the staff had left. As someone else said, I would trust him with my child's life.
