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.

Dr Ravitz was great. I went for a 2nd opinion for tingling and numbness due to a pinched nerve. She was knowledgable, confident and kind. She asked great questions and was very competent. She was also very easy to talk to, and I look forward to seeing her again.

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.

The wait time was only due to a scheduling conflict and was not an issue. Dr. Ravitz has been absolutely wonderful throughout my 1+ years of visiting her. I have been seeing her for migraine management, and she has helped me get them completely under control.

She was nice, but I didn't really feel she helped me (or that she believed she could help me). She listened to my symptoms/history (quite long), but didn't examine me. She prescribed a medicine and ordered an MRI. I did not feel that she discussed the medication and its potential side effects adequately, especially because I told her I was concerned about it. She told me to "play around" with the dose to see what would work for me. I discussed it in greater detail with the pharmacist (this is the first time I have asked to speak to the pharmacist about a new medication, as I usually feel comfortable enough to discuss it with the doctor). I was hoping for more help or at least some more hope/optimism, since I have been in pain for a long time, but she didn't really inspire the confidence that she could even help me. The wait was long (over an hour from the appointment time and I arrived early to complete paperwork), and the waiting room was entirely packed and quite uncomfortable. People talk on cell phones even though there is a sign stating "no cell phone use." There are several doctors at this practice, so the packed wait room is likely a result of that. I always expect to wait a while at the doctor, especially as a new patient, but I worry that the wait will always be very long for follow up visits, too. Also, the front desk staff were rude and unfriendly. They made me really, really uncomfortable. They talked very loudly amongst themselves (but for the entire waiting room to hear) about insurance issues of patients who were waiting (and you could tell, because they would be discussing it and then they would call the person up).

Risa is a nice person, but not a great doctor. If she is knowledgeable, she doesn't give the patient a feeling of confidence. I didn't feel that she was completely present at the appointment.

Nice staff and nice office. Dr. Ravitz is calm and friendly. Dr. Ravitz explained that she specializes in neurology, not psychiatry. She was happy to take care of me temporarily, but preferred I find an actual psychiatrist long-term which I understand. The confusion was due to my insurance (Aetna) suggesting a neurologist when I searched for in-network psychiatrists. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
