  1. Hello: I am one of Dr. Carl Robinson’s patients (St. Mary’s Neurology in Maine) and can not recommend him –and the rest of the Saint Mary’s staff– highly enough! You will be truly listened to, and Dr. R is all about coming up with solutions to issues WITH the patient, which is empowering to someone who feels “at the mercy” of her/his brain. Since I’ve been going to St. Mary’s for the past 10+ years, my seizures and migraines are well-controlled, thanks to trying out several different approaches to these disorders.

    On a less positive, I am a FORMER patient of Dr. Heidi Henninger, and left because of her emotionally abusive behavior. I’d thought perhaps it was just a personality clash between the two of us, until finding out other patients had similar experiences. (She is known to be sarcastic, yell at patients, eye roll, interrupt, insult, and not take concerns seriously.) Additionally, Henninger prescribed meds to someone I knew which put the patient’s life in danger, and if a member of her family hadn’t done follow-up research the results would have been catastrophic. She should not be on this list.

    • Your advice is appreciated and well taken. Sorry to say good-bye to Dr. Heidi Henninger since we now have only one neuro listed for Maine.

      But I guess in this case, it’s addition by subtraction.

      Thanks, Vivacia!

  2. Nice listing- but doesn’t do a bit of good for a state that only has 3 listed in one city for the entire state. It would be a good thing if one or more could at least go to other towns throughout the state every several months- if not get more in the state- Nebraska.

    • The listings are based on individual recommendations and rely upon the patients themselves.

      That’s the good and the bad of it.

      In New York, there are a zillion recommendations, in Nebraska, Nevada, and Montana there is only one.

      I think that probably has to do with population density, more than anything else.

  8. I am Canadian. I don’t know if there’s someone who will benefit from this, but I highly recommend Dr. M.Javidan in Vancouver General hospital. He’s totally turned my life around. I’m incredibly grateful for his wonderful care.

    • Yes, we do have a Canadian section– small though it may be — and I just added him.

      Thanks lots, I’m sure it will be of help!

  9. I would like to recommend (highly!) Dr. Ryan McDonald, Neurologist in Spring, Texas. He spends all of the time you need during your appointment and is reachable by email 24/7. Works WITH the patient instead of simply issuing orders. After having seen 3 other neurologists….and feeling very much abused and discouraged….Dr. McDonald is a keeper as well as a treasure!
