I have seen a number of Neurologists over the years and this one is the very best. It helps to relieve concerns or stress of the disease. Now, and in the future, I will always recommend my Doctor.

I feel like Dr. Later is putting a lot of effort into diagnosing and helping my symptoms. He explains things very well and listens well. I'm probably not the easiest patient at this time and I have some trouble communicating, but he's straight forward and patient. I've had my migraines and symptoms for some time and I've made a lot of progress under his care-both in feeling better and having a better understanding of what's happening and what can and can't be done. I'm really great full for the time and effort he's given this far. I

Dr. Later was wonderful. I didn't realize my appointment had been scheduled for an hour since I was a new patient. I learned this after my appointment. So I was really impressed with Dr. Later and the time he spent getting to know me and listen. His care and treatment made me feel safe.
