She’s really respectful, and she seemed like she cared. It wasn’t bad at all. The wait was long, but that was my fault I think.

This doctor prescribed me medicine and never sent it to the phramacy. I checked with the front desk to make sure it was sent before I left the office and have since called the office TWO TIMES to fill this, specifying the pharmacy’s name AND address. Each time they told me it was sent. I still don’t have my medication.

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I'm a long term sufferer of chronic migraines due to lymes disease. I've seen many neurologists over the years and she's very understanding, listens well, and is very sympathetic. I didn't feel rush at all, she took time to ask me questions. I would highly recommend Dr Ravitz.

The first visit went well. I did not wait very long. I was seen very quickly. I waited less than 10 min. Although, Dr. Ravitz wasn't a bubbly person, she showed concern about my condition. She took all options into consideration to give me the best treatment. I will be seeing her again for all my follow up visits.

Awful office. They charge you before you get seen, the wait was close to an hour, and the waiting room is full of people shouting. The doctor barely listened to what I had to say and simply told me to go get an MRI which would cost an exorbitant amount. Would never return.

I had a great first appointment with Dr. Ravitz. I have headache issues that have yet to be diagnosed. Dr. Ravitz took the time to listen to the whole story, took my theories about what it might be seriously, and ordered several tests that I hope will shed some light. In the past I've had experiences with healthcare providers not believing my headache problems were serious and dismissing my thoughts and concerns, and that was absolutely not the case here. I vastly appreciate her help and will definitely keep seeing her.
