Dr.Mohen is not only the best neurologist that I've ever been to, but she is also the best DOCTOR that I've ever seen. She truly cares about issues that you are having and provides the most amazing care accordingly. As ifthat isn't enough, the staff is lovely and the office is very clean. I highly recommend seeing her for any neurological, or sleep issues (in my case) that you may have.

I've never had a better doctor. I wish she could be my primary. She is the first doctor in over a decade who has been able to help me with migraines. She listens and I feel better every time I leaveher office. She goes far above and beyond to help. I can't say enough good thing about Dr Mohen and can't even believe there are negative reviews. The front desk staff at the different offices are all great except for one at the upper east side office but maybe she was having a bad day.

I do not recommend this doctor. She did not have proper diagnosis for my symptoms and tried to make me get several tests. I found out that the tests she suggested are costly and some of them do not even necessarilyhelp in accurate diagnosis. I called to schedule a bigger test, and the doctor's office said they will only give that test to me if it's covered by my insurance. Even though I called my insurance to double check before scheduling an appointment, they insisted that they need to call the insurance themselves and never called me back. I cannot help but feel that the doctor's office is very money oriented rather than my well being.

I went in for a consultation on something that was bothering me and when she had an idea of what was wrong she mumbled through her explanation for what was causing the issue. When I asked follow up questions she eitherdidn't answer them or was vague. It's honestly possible she answered them but I either didn't catch it because she said it so quickly/quietly? I got a feeling she was afraid of saying something that would be wrong in the future. I also felt a little rushed out the door towards when I decided not to do tests. She was very nice though, and did give me a good idea on what was going on. Maybe I just had a bad experience. Be sure to come with questions, especially for treatment options if you have an issue.

Dr. Mohen is awesome. So kind and very thorough. She sat and evaluated via questions to figure out the issue and then did a physical assessment. She squeezed me in between patients to write a doctors note for my job anddidn’t charge me for a visit. She listens and really tries to help resolve the issue. I’d definitely recommend her to others with neuro problems. A++

The doctor was good, but the wait was way too long. She didn't even have that many patients that day, so I'm not sure why I had to wait over an hour in the waiting room. When I finally got upto ask the receptionist how much longer I was going to have to wait, he seemed surprised and asked "No one's come out to get you yet?". Clearly I waited for no reason... Other than the wait, the staff and the doctor were friendly, thorough and informative.

Seeing a Neurologist can be a scary prospect. But Dr. Mohen immediately put me at ease. She asked lots of questions and took continuous notes as we talked. She did not rush the visit, which was really appreciated. It is clearto me that she truly cares about her work and her patients. After just one visit, I would highly recommend her and look forward to continuing to work with her.

I’ve seen many doctors for my migraines, hospitalizations, tests, everything. Dr. Mohen not only went above and beyond, but she took time to really look into what could be a factor from environment, history, mental health etc, as well as aphysical exam and tests. She’s awesome and makes you really feel secure about treatment.
