Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Mohen was great. She was very knowledgeable and took the time listen to your concerns. Not many doctors now a days take the time to actually interact with their patients.
She is awesome! Very thorough and patient.
I saw Dr Mohen post a car crash to monitor a concussion. She conducted a through examination and gave me a straightforward honest evaluation. She also has a great bedside manner and sense of humor.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Mohen and she was absolutely amazing! Extremely polite and not patronizing.
dr Mohen was terrific - incredibly helpful, thoughtful, thorough, and calming all at the same time. Highly highly recommend.
This was the single most positive experience I have had at a doctor's office. The staff and doctor were kind and patient, and took time to understand my struggles. I have been to countless doctors without a diagnosis and was finally able to receive some help. I highly recommend Dr. Mohen.
Dr. Mohen is the best! She is very detail oriented and is unbelievably passionate about her work and helping her patients. I highly recommend going to her!
I am so grateful to have made this appointment with Sylvia. She showed genuine concern in my sleep problems and covered all bases by asking lots of questions to get to know my situation better. She listened to everything I had to get off my chest about my sleep and outside factors that may be affecting it. Sylvia is so kind and I would recommend her to everyone.
I would highly recommend Dr. Mohen to anyone seeking a neurologist in downtown NYC. She was extremely personable, efficient, was able to explain her complex scientific analysis in simple terms.
Dr. Mohen is a fantastic doctor. She's incredibly thorough and you have her undivided attention while you are there. I think it's safe to so that most reasons to go to a Neurologist are scary. Her bedside manner and approach to medicine is comforting which helps to make it easier.
Dr. Mohen was fabulous. Took a really thoughtful detailed history. Was really attentive and wonderful interpersonally. Exactly what I was hoping for!
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 clear to 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.
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 up to 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.
Dr. Mohen explains everything, is respectful and answered all my questions.
My experience was amazing. Going to the Dr can feel cold and clinical. My experience with Dr. Mohen was comforting and personal.
Finally! A doctor that actually takes the time to discuss all of my questions and concerns. I felt I was in good hands with Dr. Mohen. Setting up a same-day appointment was a breeze and I was seen on time. Will definitely visit again (should I have neurological needs)
I really liked this doctor. She listened to me and she ran some tests. Turned out I'm just crazy, but she put my mind at ease. I would see her again. She has a pretty good sense of humor.
Dr. Mohen is truly the best!
Dr. Mohen is the best. She's been helping me through a rare neurological disorder for the past 6 months. She's thorough, a great listener, and is willing to try and variety of potential solutions to abate my symptoms. Highly recommend.
She listened carefully to me and it was great some exams were done on the first day.
She was professional, thorough, patient, kind and knowledgeable about issues that I wasn't even there about. She was lovely!
She was super nice and not even remotely intimidating like a lot of NYC Doctors are.
She is very sweet and thorough. She explains everything to you. Even if you don't understand every term, she breaks it down to you. She listens to every concern and makes sure you take the proper tests. Testing was done there. Pleasant office :)
Dr. Mohen was very observant. She asked detailed questions to get to the bottom of the situation and ran test to make sure everything is functioning properly. Highly recommend.
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 a physical exam and tests. She’s awesome and makes you really feel secure about treatment.
She was very kind and made me feel comfortable and confident that she can help resolve my issue.
The Dr asked lots of questions, did a thorough exam and listened to my concers.

Excellent all the way around. Great Doctor.

Dr. Mohen is awesome. She's friendly and a great listener. It's the first time I felt like a doctor took my migraines seriously. Very happy with my visit and glad I finally found a reliable NYC neurologist.
Very professional and helpful. Short wait time. Staff and technicians were very polite and professional also.
Always very professional and helpful.
Short wait time, very kind and knowledgeable.
Doctor was pleasant. However the technician was extremely unprofessional. Laptop in the testing room had his webpage from shopping for adidas sneakers open and he texted on his personal phone in the MIDDLE of neurological testing. Not ok.
Dr. Mohen was great! She spent ample time with me going over in detail what was going on with me and what steps we were going to take to try and figure out what's wrong. Professional, attentive, courteous and funny!
it was very good and I felt cared for and we shall see how it goes
Dr Mohen saved my life! After visiting various hospitals, No one was able to detect my strokes at such a young age. Dr Mohen listened to my symptoms, and sent me right away for an MRI and MRA. Later that evening, I learned that I've unfortunately suffered a couple of strokes and was admitted to the hospital! Had I not saw Dr Mohen that day, I may not have been so lucky!!! THANK YOU!
Dr. Mohen is a laid-back, intelligent doctor. She yawned a lot during visits, but was a competent provider and did her best to call me back if there was an issue with a medication. However, there were several aspects of the practice where she works (New York Neurology Associates) that really turned me off from returning as a patient. I visited a site on the Upper East Side and another on the Upper West Side. The receptionists are rude, mean and unwelcoming. The payment policy is such that I paid a significant credit card fee each time I paid my co-pay. Robbery. The medical techs are very nice, but the practice as a whole was terrible.
She is amazing doctor
I saw Dr. Mohen on an emergency basis same day appointment. She did not disappoint very kind , attentive, and is determined to get to the root of your medical issues.very thorough I'm happy to have found her.
I was extremely impressed with how professional, kind, and thorough Dr. Mohen was. She listened thoroughly to my issues and symptoms, scheduled tests to rule out anything serious, and even called me with the results as I was very anxious waiting for them. I cannot recommend her enough.
Dr. Mohen is an amazing doctor.
She was very attentive. She listened to me and did not treat me like I was crazy.
Front desk staff was more concerned with their sushi order than updating my insurance, but I really do enjoy my appointments with Dr. Mohen to follow up on my issues.
Great Doctor, listens to all of your issues and is very considerate. Would recommend 10/10
Dr. Mohen seems very caring and attentive and I look forward to seeing her again.
I love her service! She is the best doctor I have ever had!!
My Dr explained a lot, took lots of test.
Dr. Mohen is super nice. She's patient and understanding, and has helped me a lot with my migraine headaches.
I felt understood and the service was great. she did all type of test until they find out the solution. Thank you
She's very pleasant and professional and thorough with examination and tests. Everyone in the office were pleasant and professional.
Staff very friendly and accommodating Excellent Dr, Very thorough, takes time to understand her patients medical background and current medical needs, highly recommend!....
Very kind, patient and thorough. I felt like I was in good and caring hands. Had some tests run right there in the office. Office staff and techs were amazing as well. Definitely a keeper!
I left the office very much pleased. She was patient and attentive. Dr. Mohen made me feel a lot better about my doctor's appointment. She was knowledgeable and explained things to me that previous doctors had not.
Dr Mohen could not have been nicer!
Dr. Mohan was very professional and listened to my concerns. She also mad am a feel comfortable. I didn't wait long to be seen and the office staff and technician were very friendly.
Dr. Mohen is great - kind,caring and a very good doctor as well.
It felt like how going to the doctor used to be. Great bedside manner, curious, informative. Great experience!
While I felt that Dr Mohen was very professional, her technician that administered all the testing I needed that day was not. When I arrived in the room, she was on a personal cell phone call and made me wait while she changed into her scrubs (she was obviously running late to work that day). The technician was not friendly, chomped on gum the whole time she was with me and was not very gentle when positioning me for the tests she needed to run. Again, Dr. Mohen was thorough and made sure to ask lots of questions to try to get to the source of my issues, but that technician was bad enough to make me never want to go back to this office. Also, I never received any follow up from the office when the results of my tests came back, which I found to be very frustrating since that is common practice in all the other medical practices I have been to.
Professional, listened intently, curious, extremely knowledgeable, and sympathetic.
Kind, thorough neurologist. Really listens. Happy to have found such an excellent neurologist and well-run office in the upper east side.
Doctor Mohen was amazing, she listened carefully and asked a lot of questions. She was running late but she visited me as soon as she got to the office. I would highly recommend her!
She was very pleasant, gave a thorough explanation, and offered to help even more than was needed.
The office was very clean and comfortable. The front desk crew were quick, professional, and helped me with post-examination questions. Dr. Mohen was friendly and asked great questions that I hadn't even thought of. I was seen within 5 minutes of my appointment time. Prescription was ready within 30 minutes of me leaving the office. Great experience all around.
Dr. Mohen was very thorough and re-assuring. I've suffered from migraines for a long time and seen many doctors. She has been the first doctor with new ideas on how to treat my symptoms.
Dr Mohen listen to my concerns and made me feel comfortable.
very nice doc
Very knowledgeable, attentive and observant. I am very please with her services and I highly recommend her!
Dr. Mohen is very nice, highly patient, and is comforting. She does not scare you with possible dire diagnoses, especially if you're susceptible to health anxiety, and she doesn't order unnecessary or excessive tests. Her office staff is really nice and accommodating, too. Prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Dr. Mohen!
She was great! However, after checking in with my Primary care Physician, I learned that a lot of the tests I did were not necessary. I advise someone to take special care to make sure they are knowledgeable about what each test is, and the cost.
Very thorough and calm, asked many detailed questions and felt 100% confident in her decision-making!
Highly competent!!!! Great bedside manner!
The front desk admin was efficient, professional and very nice-I forgot my insurance card but had a photo of it on my phone but she was totally ok, saying she will get it online. I was in to see Dr. Mohen not even five minutes after I finished paperwork for my first visit. She gave me time explain my migraine history and current chronic migraine situation, asked the right questions and respected my preference for treatment options. Tests were done right in the office and her office handled my MRI appt and made things very easy. She asked great questions (I'm a professor so I value good questions!) and has in depth knowledge of the condition. For the first time, I feel like I might actually get some relief for my chronic migraine.
Kimberly at the front desk is on top of it. Dr. Mohen listened to me, paid 100% attention (not on phone, etc) and started testing right in the office. The offices are sanitary, modern and easy to get to. Be respectful, as always, come a few minutes early to do the paperwork. I did not wait, not even 5 minutes.
As a physician myself, I can tell you that Dr. Mohen is a real gem. Intelligent, thoughtful and kind. Also her office is efficient and well run by a great staff. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Dr. Mohen was great--she made me feel calm about a set of symptoms that had been making me feel decidedly un-calm. She didn't make me feel rushed, and she and her office staff took the time to listen to what I had to say. I get the sense that she's so well regarded because, on top of being an excellent physician, she is a very good human being.
Dr. Sylvia Mohen was extremely professional and very informative and comforting. She provided me with a lot of information about what I can do with my condition and referred me to outlets that will continue to help me. She even provided a much-needed prescription that my last neurologist failed to do. Overall amazing doctor, staff was very busy but pleasant. Can't wait for my next appointment.
She was kind and listened very carefully. She asked questions that sparked information I should have included. I felt very well cared for.
Efficient office and no wait. The Dr. listened carefully to me and took her time.
I didn't feel rushed and it felt like she listened to my problems. I left out of the office feeling that I was in good hands.
She's compassionate and professional and very, very informed about migraine. I'm really happy.
She was great. Thorough and easy to understand. Her team was equally professional. I would recommend this Dr office to anyone.
She was very professional and showed an interest in helping me
Made you feel comfortable. They were very thorough with testing.
Dr. Mohen is very knowledgeable about her field, and was able to confirm my diagnosis fairly quickly. She asked lots of relevant and good questions, which helped the diagnosis. Very nice talking to her overall as well.
Best doctor in town
Incredibly thorough and genuinely compassionate. It was immediately clear to me that she was going to be a partner in solving my neuro problems. I recommend Dr. Mohen without hesitation!
I love Dr Mohen she is really great and cares about her patients
nice staff, caring. Dr Mohen was very helpful and gently.
Clear, concise explanation of tests and results. Very knowledgable and caring. A very positive experience.
It was my first visit, but I likes her a lot. She asked all questions pertaining to my case and she made me feel comfortable and was in good hands.
She was amazing! I felt like I was in good hands.
Very personable and understanding. Highly recommend!
Professional. Easy to talk to and responses were easy understand. Some testing done immediately in office and another test scheduled 48 hours later! All of the stressors of the visit were deflated to tiny pebbles!
Excellent bedside manner. Seemed approachable and genuinely interested in helping.
She is an amazing doctor!!
Dr. Mohen spent time and actually listened to me. She performed a thorough exam and started testing immediately and treatment followed. She did not spend months testing, as I had been experiencing. She considered my history of neurologic issues in her testing and treatment plan - not just the current symptoms. She is responsive - taking time to talk to me on the telephone about my concerns and willing to talk to and coordinate a treatment plan with my other physicians. I highly recommend her. She is an answer to my prayers!
I really love how thorough Dr. Mohen is. She makes sure to cover all her bases and to explain everything really well. She is also on the lookout for anything that may come up and is always willing to share what she knows and what the root causes might be. She has great expertise it seems in MS and migraines but again, she's a great professional in that she quickly points out any additional things she sees that might be worth watching.
Dr. Mohen was amazing. She is extremely warm, very easy to speak with and even though I was a little nervous, she kept me calm. She is very thorough, is a great listener and I highly recommend her. The office was very clean and staff very helpful setting up a follow up elsewhere.
Office setting is very professional. The employees are helpful and Dr. Mohen made me feel at ease with her comforting to eat and her reassuring that we will find out what the problems are and develop a plan that will work. I was very nervous about my situation and felt relieved and confident when I left that everything will be ok.
she was very nice and explained everything fully. office very clean and professional looking.
She's wonderful. Will see her for as long as I'm able.
Just my first visit but so far she's great and seems to really care about her patients.
I saw the doctor due to severe pain caused by my herniated disc, which I have for the last 5 years. She was totally absent minded and not knowledgeable at all. She asked me the same questions multiple times including whether my sore throat triggered my back pain (excuse me? I haven't told you that I had sore throat). She told me that I should have EMG, another MRI and I should consider a steroid injection, surgery, acupuncture and physical therapy. The treatment plan couldn't have gotten more specific! She couldn't answer my question about what type of cardio exercise I should do given my herniated disc and told me to ask this to the physical therapist. I asked her what kind of shoes I should wear, flats, some high the heels can be etc. She again referred me to the physical therapist.
She is great!! Really took her time with me and listened to everything I was telling her. She then explained in detail everything to me. She is wonderful and makes you feel so comfortable! Very caring doctor!!
Overall very pleasant experience. She didn't rush at all like most physicians which I appreciated.
Great Doctor, no complaints!!!
She is a terrific doctor. She responds quickly to emails/phone calls, and seems to really care. I'm grateful to have found her. I also like that she is non-judgemental
I have been having regular headaches and light headedness for a few months now. Dr. Mohen has walked me through all of my options and been very supportive in following up on any concerns I have and trying new remedies.
The receptionist is very nice, the office is clean and the restroom as well. Dr. Sylvia Mohen was very attentive on my problem. Asking questions and paying close attention on what I was telling her. I had some tests done . I have a follow up appointment. Overall she is a great doctor and I would Deff recommend her!
Great doctor. Very personable and caring. Really works with you to help ease your pain
Dr. Mohen was thorough, knowledgeable, friendly and compassionate. She made me feel at ease and didn't rush through, and was very interested in helping me find immediate relief though I was unable to stay beyond my appointment for some testing. Highly recommend.
Fantastic doctor! Diagnosed an issue that stumped multiple other doctors, and started a treatment that cured the condition.
Wonderful doctor- thorough and professional. I like her personality very much too. The staffers at the reception are a bit brusque, but her friendliness compensated for them :)
Dr. Mohen was very understanding of my long list of health issues. She listened to and absorbed everything I threw at here. Her staff was equally as thorough and professional. I felt that I mattered for once in quite a long time. I'm definitely going back whenever I need to see her
It was great! She is a wonderful doctor, and the team working in the office is also top notch.
She was awesome. She took my concerns and made me comfortable and at ease. Very knowledgeable.
She was everything that the other recommendation stated! It was wonderful to find a doctor that "listens"! She is a true find.
I have had severe migraines for nearly five years. In that time I have seen doctor after doctor and always felt like I got a rubber stamp. Dr. Mohen has been thorough and inviting. She regularly keeps in contact with checking on my progress. Most importantly she has given me hope. Can't ask for more than that. There is a reason she has such high ratings.
Great! I'm so glad I've found Dr.Mohen!
Dr.Sylvia Mohen is god send. The best doc of my life. understanding, compassionate, knowledgeable,pleasant, down to earth and detailed. I went for a third opinion. I am in rolling pain but it is my moral and spiritual responsibility to write about her. GOD BLESS YOU. YOU ARE A BORN DOC.JUST WOW!!!
Excellent. Dr.Mohen restored my confidence in personalized patient-centered treatment.she was courteous, friendly and she is very in sync with current options of treatment.the receptionist and the technician were also very professional.
she was very patient in hearing me out from beginning to end before she gave me answers to my questions! and a proper diagnosis. she was my 3rd neurologist and im finally happy!!!
She is a very professional. And very good. I will recommend her to anyone that need neuro
Dr. Mohen was extremely professional, polite, and personable (especially when I asked a ton of questions about my procedure). She was able to perform testing right away and recommended where I can go for additional testing within the next day or two. Her communication was very personable, as she responds quickly to e-mails (a huge plus for a doctor!) I would certainly recommend Dr. Mohen to a friend or relative.
It was wonderful i felt really comfortable
Dr. Mohen was very helpful.
I had a great visit with Dr. Mohen. She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable throughout the whole appointment. I felt comfortable and confident in her care. Would definitely recommend!
Sylvia was very personable and I felt that she really listened and showed genuine concern. She took lots of notes while I was talking and seemed very focused on finding a solution to my problem. I felt like I was in good hands when I left. Thank you!
Dr. Mohen took the time to listen to me and asked lots of questions so as to determine the proper diagnosis and treatment. She was welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable, and reassuring that we would indeed get to the bottom of my frequent headaches. She also provided her email so that I could communicate as to how the treatment was working. I will definitely use her as my primary neurologist.
Dr. Mohen was excellent - very thorough, and helpful.
Best. Doctor visit. Ever.
Very thorough evaluation. Dr. Mohen spoke authoritatively and with confidence, and was able to secure all testing (with the exception of an MRI) on-premises that very same day, and discussed the preliminary results of those tests with me. I would recommend her practice to anyone.
Other than taking a bit longer than I would have liked, considering the office/waitroom was empty when I arrived, to be seen- the office was wonderful. The front desk staff was very helpful and took care of setting up follow up appointments and outside the office tests for me. Ms. Mohen was very thorough with her questions and explained the tests I would get getting- she was very personable and warm. I get very nervous in doctors appointments- as I always over think my answers- but she was very patient with me, which was helpful.
Very friendly, professional staff. Dr. Mohen very nice and professional. Her treatment helped me significantly reduce migraines.
I found Dr Sylvia Mogen bright, intellegent Compassionate and eager to help. Her suggestions for improvement were well understood and appreciative. I trust the road to better help will be achieved with her help
Great doctor. I am extremely satisfied with the quality of services provided by Dr. Mohen and her staff. I wish I could have Dr. her as my primary care Dr. I would recommend Dr. Mohen to all my friend.
Excellent. I'm happy I found her. She is professional, super friendly and very thorough.
Dr Mohen was very sweet, thorough, and reassuring. I would highly recommend her!
Most important the visit with the doctor was great!! She asked me many question, while I'm talking to Dr Mohen, she was noting everything down that I was stating to her on her lap top. She examen me right after and then she walk me to the front so the tech could do a few more exams on me. I really did not like the professionalism of the front desk. One girl was on her Cell phone talking while I'm waiting for her. Another guy is eating in the front desk. Really !!! The front desk to me was VERY messy too.
She was very informative and made me feel comfortable.
