I prefer having a Doctor like Dr. Elahi because he is proactive in treating his patients rather than waiting for other symptoms or issues to arise. He looks to correct the issue right away and gets all the neccessary tests scheduled asap.

I highly recommend Dr. Elahi. I went in with a complicated history and he was patient and took the time to understand all of my concerns. He is one of the few neurologists that has explained exactly what is happening, scientifically,and then provided an extensive list of possible treatments, including alternatives like neurofeedback and acupuncture. He ordered the necessary tests to really find the problems and not only treat symptoms. I was extremely happy with the visit and look forward to finding the best treatment for me. I highly recommend Dr. Elahi and staff!

This is the worst doc ever. I talked to others and they told me that he didn't do his job thoroughly. I cannot say the diagnoses, but I was treated as the same as everyone else, even when everybody reacts differentlyto each diagnosis. Anyways do not go to this doctor if you want to throw your time away. I Do not recommend this doctor at all. uggh so frustrated with him lousy lousy lousy.
