I went earlier than my appointment because I was in excruciating pain. I was accomodated regardless. The lady at the frontdesk was really nice and helpful. Dr. Bronfin was to the point, thorough, and caring. I was given medication that significantly lowered my pain.

She is a nice person but her staff are not so great. They also request your card information before you can even be seen and they let you know they will charge your card without your knowledge based on their feesif your insurance doesn’t fully cover which i don’t like.

Dr. Bronfin is simply wonderful. I don’t feel like I’m ever in the dark, she explains everything to me. If you have questions she really listens and takes her time to answer them. I trust her decisions completely. She knows whatshe’s talking about. Staff is courteous and friendly. Wait time is super worth it, I don’t see myself seeing a different provider.

Every time I go to Dr. Bronfin I wait close to 1.5 hours to be seen. I've been seeing her for at least three years and I dread going because of this. It shouldn't take over two hours for a routinefollow-up. I really like the doctor herself, but I can't stand the office. I am thinking about finding a new neurologist.

The only negative I can share about my experience was the wait time - I waited an hour prior to being called back to see the doctor. However, upon being called back, I was able to understand the wait time abit more. Dr. Bronfin was very thorough and addressed all of my concerns, taking time to explain each of the tests she was running, why and what the intended result would prove/disprove. Her bedside manner is excellent as is her general disposition - I highly recommend!

The wait time at my first visit was 2 hour. Broken AC. Not good start, but dr. Bronfin was very professional and seems she knows a lot which is always a plus for a doctor. I’ve done several tests including MRI,CT scan and EMG, got referrals to other specialists and necessary RX even for mu anxiety about MRI. Would definitely recommend her to my friends.

Dr. L. Bronfin is great professional. She listens and hears, pays attention to little details, gives enough time to the patient to verbalize and explain the problem. Doctor provides great check up, checks all nerves, muscles using equipmentin her office. The medication prescribed is discussed with patient, all cons and pros are explained.

Dr. Bronfin is extremely thorough, knowledgeable and patient. She listened to all of my concerns and created a game plan of how we would determine what was causing my symptoms. Dr. Bronfin has a calm demeanor and is not an alarmist,which is very reassuring when trying to figure out the cause of unusual symptoms. She made sure all of the steps moved quickly so we could address the underlying cause of the symptoms. Dr. Bronfin's team is also great, especially Denise. She followed-up with all test results in a very timely and compassionate manner. I highly recommend Dr. Bronfin and the team.

I saw Dr. Bronfin twice-- as other reviewers noted, I waited forever both times (more than an hour). At both appointments, she referred me for all kinds of other tests and doctors... which ended up costing a lot and -- fromall the other subsequent doctors I've been to-- were totally unnecessary. I think she gets a referral bonus or something. After being told to get an MRI (I'd had one earlier that came back negative), I asked if she really thought it was neccessary or not because it would cost a lot out of pocket. She replied with "then get an x-ray-- it does the same thing and will be cheaper". So why the MRI? Both appointments were very short-- she had lots of recommendations, but I didn't feel like she actually listened to me and my concerns. On the plus side, she seemed knowledgeable and smart.

I was extremely pleased with my first visit with Dr. Bronfin. First Linda, the receptionist, and I talked about our cats. Then when I saw the doctor I felt I made the right choice to uncover my ailment. She was personablewith great bedside manner. Her questions, extensive testing, and presumptions showed she knew her stuff. She gave a prescription and set me up for an MRI. After that I will return for final diagnosis and treatment. I look forward to my next visit and know I am in good hands!

Waited 1.5 hours for proper insurance processing and then waited for 35 minutes in patient clothing while she attended to someone with a "medical emergency," which was really two young spoiled girls who arrived after I did and demanded her time.I only stayed because Dr. Bronfin caught me as I attempted to leave, at 7:35, 2 hours after I got into the office. The whole experience was highly unprofessional, highly distressing, and I left incredibly upset and that I had not received proper medical attention.

She was so so nice! She diagnosed my tension headaches within 15 minutes and still sat with me for a few minutes later to explain each medication individually. She's clearly very knowledgeable and was able to answer my more obscure questions.The wait was long only because the person before me fainted in the examination room and they had to ring an ambulance.
