It took thirty day to get in for an appointment. When I arrived at 11:25 for an 11:30 appointment I was told they didn't have time to do the test; they wanted me there at 11:15 and I would have to come back the following week. I said no one had called the previous day to remind me of the appointment and that I should be there earlier. I was told they were short staffed. I made an appointment with another doctor near Landsdowne Hospital, saw him within five days and was diagnosed and treated. Very Poor experience.
Don't bother trying to make an appt near noon...you'll sit in cue on their stupid phone system for 30 min. to then be tossed into voice mail because they hit the out to lunch button leaving calls in que to rollover. What's worse is you leave a message (taking more of your time) for a callback to get no call back. His staff is unprofessional. BEWARE.
Dr. Cintron was always very polite, seemed caring. I had (what I found out later) complicated migraines) which presented like seizures. Because they did not show up on the EEG's or present like epilepsy, I always felt like Dr. Cintron thought I was lying. He sent me to GW EEG clinic, the Psychiatrist was a friend of his. They tried to prove the events were psychological. I was not told this by Dr. Cintron but thru my records. I found a wonderful doctor not long after, realized what caused the problems and haven't had a 'seizure' since. I would very much prefer to hear 'I don't know what is wrong', rather than reading that I must have a psychological issue because HE can't find the problem.
Dr. Cintron is amazing! I've been on the same MS meds for 10 years (with a neurologist in Fairfax) and when I changed neurologists recently to Dr. Cintron, right away HE noticed a contraindication with my existing drugs & conditions!!! Wow! So glad I changed to him. He's very astute and 'gets' your picture of health quickly. I feel like I'm finally in good hands now! I'd highly recommend Dr. Cintron!
Dr. Cintron has been my neurologist since 2007. I have had epilepsy and essential tremor since I was 13 years old. I am now 48. I have seen many neurologists, including 5 since moving to VA in the mid 90's. I can tell you that Dr. Cintron is by far the most competent person I have ever seen. I appreciate the time he takes and the level of care he provides. In my case, I am amazed at the amount of personal information he is able to recall when I see him. I moved out of state for a while and he continued to treat me which was something I really appreciated. Most importantly, he has patiently taken the time to wean me off certain medications and find ones that were a better fit. If you know anything about seizure disorders, you understand that this can be a long, difficult process. In short, Dr. Cintron will listen to everything you have to say and will then map out a realistic plan and stay on top of it. In my opinion, there is not a more qualified neurologist in the D.C. area.
Dr. Cintron has been my neurologist for the past 10 years. He is dedicated to "BEING THERE" for his patients! I found him at age 18 based on a recommendation of the Brain Injury Association of America (BIA) and have been and am still very pleased with every interaction. 1) Experienced & Competent - Dr. Cintron determined the source of the complications I was having with concentration, processing, depression, mood stability, etc. after having a Traumatic Brain Injury from a car accident at the age of 9. 2) Focused on well-being of patients - He is able to describe what's going on in the brain in lay terms. Also, when I had an adverse reaction to a medication, he made a special appointment outside of office hours to see me on emergency. 3) Personal - In addition, he is very personal with his patients and remembers them and their history (even non-medical) over time. 4) He's very fast at responding to and coordinating with other doctors. I'd put up with the challenging staff ANY DAY!
Dr. Cintron diagnosed my post concussive syndrome. He and his staff were the most professional I have ever seen.He is kind,understanding,and highly thought of in the field . He is the only one I trust with my current condition. Definitely would refer him to anyone and everyone in the country
After many months, his phone still doesn't work. You can't leave messages and have to fax. Responses are not returned in a timely manner. And most important, the response to my headaches was to prescribe heavy duty drugs. An ENT doctor told me about a book called How To Heal Your Headaches: The 1-2-3 Program. This discussed food triggers. By eliminating these triggers, I've dramatically reduced the number and severity of headaches. No anti seizure meds needed!
