Dr. Rosenthal is pleasant, easy to talk to, and far more thorough than any neurologist I've ever visited. He had me go into great detail about my symptoms and treated me as an individual with my own unique needs. His receptionist is also welcoming and friendly.

Dr. Rosenthal is curt and impatient. In my experience he does not seem to connect initial intake information well with subsequent visits. In my case he kept referring to something I'd mentioned as my chief complaint and I had to redirecthim more than once to the symptom that was giving me trouble.

Dr. Rosenthal is phenomenal. I was nervous to see a neurologist for the first time. He immediately made me feel at ease and comfortable. His bedside manner is the best I've ever experienced. He joked with me while I was gettingtests done so I wouldn't be nervous, spent plenty of time with me to make sure I understood our next steps, and made sure all of my questions were answered. I wish all doctors were like him. I hope not to have to see him many more times (for health reasons), but otherwise, I would always look forward to my visits with him. I couldn't recommend him more.

While I thought Dr. Rosenthal was quite nice, my experience in his office was less than pleasant. His receptionist was quite rude when I arrived to my first visit a few mins late (subway problems) and his office is outdated anda bit dirty. But still decided to give it another try in my follow-up On my second app, tI had an EGG done, in the second room, and there was dust everywhere and a certain smell. I wanted to run out of there, but felt like I shouldn't. I will definitely not be going back.

During my visit, I found the doctor and his staff to be professional, caring, compassionate, and attentive. Dr. Rosenthal took the time to come and greet me in the waiting room and then saw me on time!! What a wonderful firstimpression!! The office was clean and well organized. The music in the waiting room was great too. I'm so glad that I listened to my doctor and saw Dr. Rosenthal. I know that I am in good hands and will follow through with Dr. Rosenthal's recommendations. I will also make sure to highly recommend him to anyone needing a neurologist.

Rude, obnoxious, and very unprofessional, as was the receptionist. Solution to my issue that has been causing me pain snd issues for over 4 years was ‘time’ and a vitamin I’m already taking. Pointless visit, will never be going back. Highly recommend going elsewhere. Office was also dirty

I got to my appointment almost a half hour early. It was still earlier than his staff was expected to arrive. However Dr. Rosenthal jumped right in and performed the role of administration and doctor. It is great when Doctors valueyour time as well, rather than have me sit and wait for his team to get in to complete the rest of the initial first appointment process. He took care of it, and he was able to still take the necessary time needed to complete his medical analysis of my situation. The end result....I was out quickly and back to work, but even more so I felt comfortable that I was being taken care of.

The doctor did not even let me explain what is going on with me. I was not able to say if my symptoms where worse sitting or standing. He kept telling me he asks the questions and that is when Ican respond. When authorizing a MRI of my brain and I asked why and what do you think is wrong he refused to give me an explanation. He just told me to go get an MRI. My right as a patient is to ask what care and reason you are prescribing me.

It's hard to find doctors today like Dr. Rosenthal. He took his time in his evaluation of me. Ask me questions and really listen. From the front desk to the technician everything runs smoothly and it was a pleasure to visit this office, I highly recommend Dr. Rosenthal.
