07/11/13 4 5 5 5 This man saved my life. I had gotten sick with a very rare syndrome called Gillian Barre Syndrome (GBS) and was paralized. He was the only person who had a clue what was wrong with me and admitted me straight into ICU at UHC. I thank God daily for this man and his knowledge. Cause without his help, who knows where I'd be now.  Respond

15/05/13 2 1 5 5 front desk staff is ignorant (receptionist), long time waiting 30-1 1/2 hours to get into a room, nursing staff very nice & willing to help. Dr. Adnan Alghadban himself is highly professional & does the proper testing, gives meds & trial & error to see what helps for neuro pain for FM

16/08/12 5 5 5 5 My son has intractable pain and we found Dr. Alghadban knowledgeable, kind and caring. We decided to try a procedure at Ruby Memorial in Morgantown that had devastating results. We ended up going to UHC emergency in Bridgeport over the weekend. What he received at UHC triggered another severe reaction. Monday, we called Dr. Alghadban and got in immediately for further evaluation and treatment. Thank God! Dr. Alghadban knew what to administer. He will do everything in his power and area of expertise to help his patients. He explores all avenues. I like his direct, truthful manner of communicating. He takes time to answer all questions. He truly cares about his patients. I highly recommend him.

13/12/11 3 3 2 2 I PRAY FOR THIS MAN, EVEN THOUGH I DON'T THINK HE BELIEVES IN CHRIST, HE NEEDS OUR PRAYERS ! HE SPENDS NO TIME WITH HIS PATIENTS. HE DOES IF YOU'RE FEELING WELL AND NO COMPLAINS, BUT MAKE A COMPLAINT, AND HE'S OUT IN A HURRY !!! IF YOU COMPLAIN HOW YOU'RE FEELING (REASON WHY YOU'RE THERE TO SEE HIM IN THE 1ST PLACE) HE SPENDS JUST ENOUGH TIME WITH YOU TO GET A PERSCRIPTION WRITTEN & TELL YOU HE'LL SEE YOU BACK IN A COUPLE WEEKS ! (HA...IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND HIM). HE DIAGNOSED ME AS HAVING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS). I THOUGHT I COULD TRUST THIS MAN. WHY I STAYED WITH HIM FOR 3 YRS., I DON'T KNOW...BUT I FOUND A NEW DR. IN PARKERSBURG. HE'S ALREADY ORDERED MORE TEST TO BE SURE OF WHAT IT IS THAT I DO HAVE. I HATE THE COSTS, BUT IT'S BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. THE MEDS HE PERSCRIBED ME 3 YRS. AGO HAS NOT HELPED ME ONE BIT ! I COMPLAINED EACH TIME I SEEN HIM, BUT IT DID NO GOOD AT ALL !. I PRAY HE QUITS PUTTING OTHERS THRU WHAT HE PUT ME THRU !!

19/08/10 5 4 5 5 I've been with him for a little over 6 years. I have cronic migraines. He has always tried to find me an affordable way to solve my pain. Office visits are only $20.00!! And he has also not charged me before! Awesome! He saw me for all 3 of my pregnancies and I breast feed as well. He always knew what was safe for me to take. (I triple checked everything) He is always very nice and personable, even showed me his pictures when he got married! At my next apt we are trying Botox, fingers crossed. He is a wonderful doctor.  Respond

26/08/09 5 4 5 5 He was the ONLY Nuero in this state that will adknoweldge the affects of Arnold Chairi Malformation!!!! (SAD :( ) He has been instrumental in assisting me in obtaining my SSD. I have 3 specialists for my condition...ACM is the primary diagnosis..the other conditions are attributed to this disease and he is the only one willing to treat the symtpoms. I thinnk he is hysterically funny as well....jokes with me and aks about my family, etc.

07/07/09 5 3 2 4 I also just received a certified letter today actually stating that he could no longer be my doctor...needless to say...I've already found a new doctor and I am no longer going to need his assistance in dealing with my MS. He was never a very good doctor...always interested in hurrying down the list to the next patient. I actually timed him as to how long he was spending on patient to patient and the time was anywhere from 4-6 mins. per patient. Wait time to see him was 1-1 1/2 hrs! Crazy! I am excited to see what new treatments my new neurologist has in mind..someone that will take time and listen..not hurry you out the door so they can talk to the next patient! I have NO IDEA why he decided not to see me as a patient anymore...maybe because I told him I didn't want to take ALL the medicine he prescribed me...just one pill that would do the trick?! No sleep is going to be lost here...if he doesn't need my business than so be it! I was planning on switching anyways

04/05/09 2 3 3 4 As a doctor he's great, but I have a sense of humor. I go to his office and joke a little with the staff (nothing outrageous) I got a letter in the mail saying he wasn’t going to see me anymore because I wasn’t taking my medicine. I called him to ask what he was talking about. He said he would help me find a new doctor but he wouldn’t see me anymore, why I asked? The last thing he said to me was to not joke with my new doctors staff. He is an excellent doctor, but I think he needs to be a little more honest with himself and his patience. Joking with the staff is no reason to lose a client over. Diagnoses MS, I think if I do a little kidding with the staff, as opposed to being a creep, they would be happier with it. By the way I still joke with my new Neurologists staff, they don’t get offended. Seems it was only him and his staff. AHHH must be a girlfriend in the staff somewhere!!!

05/03/09 5 5 5 5 He is the best Neurologist I have been to. He really tries to help his patients so they don't suffer so much with their pain. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to see a neurologist. I have never seen a doctor so commited to trying to relieve the pain of neropathy. I went to one other neurologist and she did tests that hurt. When doctor Alghadban did the same test I didn't even feel the fist bit of pain. That is the way doctors should be. Take their time and do the tests vary carefully so as not to injur the patient. He also has a great sense of humor.
