I did not have to wait too long to see Dr. Motiwala. He was very professional and thorough in my examination. I will definitely see him again if needed and do recommend him.

Extremely good service as Dr Motiwala is a pure professional. I actually got to see him earlier than my appointment time therefore I was very happy with his & his office's services. Well done!

Dr Motiwala is an amazingly kind and compassionate individual. He explained things at my level and also acknowledged when he might need future resources. He was responsive to all questions, made his own connections and seemed quite intelligent. My only hesitation is that his scheduling staff literally called me 4 times to make sure he was the right doc for me to see. None of them knew anyone else had called. Similarly his secretary called me twice because I had recently seen another neurologist (who did want me to see Dr Motiwala ASAP to ensure he could assist). I wish his front office staff had documented their phone calls to patients as it became quite frustrating. Then again, establishing a rationship with a kind doc can be worth it.

Doesn't really like to treat patients. Just wants to give a diagnosis and move you along. Not terribly helpful finding a solution to the problem. Cold manner.

He was awesome! He came to greet me quickly before I was even done with my new patient paperwork. He sat and talked to me about my issues, was very patient, understanding, and seemingly very thorough in his investigative analysis. Got great vibes from this dude and am gonna stick with him!
