He was rude because he was upset that I had the nerve to be there because he looked at my chart and didn’t see a reason to be there but I hadn’t been diagnosed although I knew I had a problem with my nerves and he did in fact diagnosed me with a nerve disorder and planned on treating me for this disorder but never apologized for entering the room rudely scolding me. I came there desperately seeking help with something I knew was going on with my nerves in my neck. I’m depressed from the constant pain and to be scolded instead of helped, I’ll never return to that location again

Dr. Iocob is a great neurologist. He’s excellent at managing my medicine intake for my myasthenia gravis. When he’s sees something a little off during a MG test, like nodules in my thyroid and lungs, he refers me to another specialist and keeps an eye on it himself. He’s more than just my neurologist!
