    Wonderful care provider
    Feb 22, 2022
    I was scheduled with this provider (who had a 6 month wait) who I consulted with 1x in 2020 and it was an unpleasant experience back them. I asked to change providers but was told I needed to return to her despite my protests. I got in via a cancellation and it was another disappointing consult that minimized dismissed and contradicts the concerns of 4 other specialists. Felt absolutely dismissed and have zero confidence in this provider who had a bad attitude for 2/2 times. Also repeated the same advice (therapy) when several of my other providers think I have a central nervous system or Neuro muscular disorder. Waste of time and don't understand how this is her specialty.

    She was a good listener and gave excellent feedback and suggestions.

    Provider listened carefully to me and asked many questions and her tentative diagnosis agreed with my own self-diagnosis. Provider referred me to another specialist for follow-up.

    My Neurologist & 2 med students at this visit put me at ease totally. I of course was nervous to be where I was & I am sure they knew it. The med student interviewing me did a comprehensive job and was compassionate/good listener. He will make a great doctor. My H&P and physical exam was more extensive than any I have ever had. It was gentle and everything was explained completely as to why it was being performed. I was part of the plan for returning later in the month for lumbar puncture and more blood work and rationale for why and I agreed fully to plans. I know that if anybody can figure out my vexing neuro problem Dr Noriko Anderson will be able to do it and I take comfort in that at this time. She is truly amazing and I am grateful to her.

    I was only there for a conductivity test of my muscles. I gave the testing people the information they needed for the test and we didn't discuss medicines or anything else irrelevant to the test. The doctor told me at the end of the test that everything was normal except for my face and calf muscles in my legs and she would give a full report to the doctor that referred me. Nothing else.

    At times I felt that the neurologist was frustrated/annoying.

    Doctor was very nicely checked on me and explained to me after.

    As far as follow up care I am still waiting (10 days since appointment) to hear of when I will have a brain MRI.

    I gave her the benefit of the doubt after a virtual consultation. The in person was no better. She was just as condescending dismissive and rude with no interest in problem solving.
    Aug 11, 2020
    She was dismissive and condescending. Didn't take into account my personal condition or give value to my experiences. I'm sure that she is a good and experienced person in her field as far as linear knowledge is concerned but a poor caregiver as far as I am concerned.

    this was the first provider I felt confident that cared about my illness and symptoms. first provider that was thorough had a thought process great bedside manner and knowledge. I felt so relieved that I found someone that put their medical school to use and felt a great sense of relief when I left my first consult. I am so hopeful at the moment
