The best care I ever received in my life. Dr. Ro is an angle and understands the needs of my condition. She makes me feel special in her concern for my needs, she exudes confidence and compassion.

It was a waste of time. The provider looks unprepared. Looks like we provided her to much information to handle - not impressed at all.

So much time during a 45 minute appointment is taken up by the doctor reading past reports from programmers, physical therapist, etc. that it is hard to get full benefit of the appointment

The combination and complexity of [...] medications and tweaking of the dosages is very complex. The communication between Dr. Ro and my wife and I is better than many providers with which I have had contact. It would be difficult to be perfect. Clarifying questions and responses are excellent and usually resolve any questions.

I have my choice of many providers I could go to. I vote with my feet. Despite the challenges the clinic has with patient flow, organization, and seldom answering the phone, Dr. Ro's clinical expertise, collaborative approach to care, insightful problemsolving, and customization of patient treatment makes me very loyal to Dr. Ro. [...] Top notch!

The provider talked in the medical terms or language not understandable to a non medical person. Questions were not satisfactorily explained. She reviewed the medical history during the appointment instead of reviewing the long history before seeing the patient. Shouldn't the neurologists be reading the old chart before she sees patients so she can dedicate herself in interviewing the patient in person? Provider hardly made eye contact because she was too busy reviewing the old chart. On the positive note we have seen a few neurologists in the area she's the only one we are most satisfied at the moment. We have yet to find a good neurologist.

Again, we had a bit more time we would have been able to press home the point about where we believe things stand and adjust the conversation from the general disease to the specific needs of this patient

My quarterly appts are complex and cover a lot so sometimes not everything discussed gets followed up [...]
