As always, Dr. Blindauer is very thorough and seeks to find answers to difficult questions/issues with my dad's Parkinson's. We're very lucky to be under her care.
Truly felt listened to and supported. Tone of the whole appointment was very calm. No argument against my choice. Pros and cons of issues were discussed. Was told - "thank you for coming in today " - and that really blew my mind!
Informative, professional, accommodating,
Best neurologist I have ever had.
I never feel rushed though there is ample time to discuss concerns
Outstanding care as always from Dr.Blindauer and her team. Excellent job by the nurse/technician. Very polite and professional. Dr. B is always concerned, caring and compassionate. I never feel that she is racing through the appointment but rather feel that she will take whatever time is necessary to address all of my concerns.
Dr Hicks and staff provided excellent care. All are obviously dedicated to and enjoy their profession.

Excellent care !! Dr. Blindauer is fantastic.
Excellent listener, extremely knowledgeable and personable. Recommended a very good course of action.
This was the best neurology appointment I've had! Dr. Blindauer was very encouraging as I completed the physical tests she gave me. This is so refreshing, since I work hard to maintain my physical health, the words she said will continue to encourage me as I maintain my physical health. She also was familiar with the alternative supplements I'm taking and said she had other patients who were doing well using the alternatives. This shows that she is really interested in the many ways to stop or slow the progression of the disease and she goes beyond the traditional meds to see what can help her patients. I am very grateful that she is my neurologist!
Dr. Blindauer was very thorough in assessing my condition. She explained treatment options well.
