He gave me good care 3 years ago, and today took the time to review notes from my current neurologist (at the Gardner Neuroscience Institute) and evaluate my condition.

I've been trying to get this pain under control for years and I finally feel seen. Dr. Slutzky took the time to figure out what might possibly help me manage my pain rather than recommending ibuprofen.

It is 20 minutes after my phone appointment, I have called both 2 minutes before and 15 minutes after appt. Time and no one has called me back about continuing appointment. If it is cancelled because they don't respond to this predicament, I will be upset.

He is very good in his field and answered all of my questions. He took his time with me. The only reason I did not give him a higher score is because this is my first appointment with him and I don't know him well.

Overall, the experience was nice. The bedside manner could be better. It would've been nice to receive more empathy, compassion & engagement from the nurse who took vitals & the resident when learning about what brought me in. However, I appreciate the thoroughness from the resident & Dr. Slutzky in regards to purpose of the visit. They were direct & I like the precautions taken.

He was very informative and explanatory about the medication he was prescribing in what a migraine is and how migraine works and why. He explained how the medication he was going to prescribe for me would work and how it works and what it does and if not then we would see what medication we can try next.
