Ratings for Dr. Douglas C. Nathanson
I can not rate staff because I haven't seen to his new locations. I was a pt of Dr. Nathansons for years when he was in Allentown. I was very sad when he left. I havn't been comfortable with his replacements. I have had and was treated for Myasthenia Gravis for years and was doing well, until this past year not so good. I lost eye site in left eye in June, was hospitalized and treated for Opticus Neuralitus. I was still recovering from that and woke up one morning in Sept. with Left sided weaknes after trying to see my neurologist and getting an app.in 2 weeks I went to hospital in the ambulance. I was admitted 10 days iv steroids , plasma pherisies dx'd with NMO Neuro Myalitus Opticus. I am suffering with severe tonic spasms. I RESEARCHED AND FOUND DR NATHANSON have an app. scheduled and can't wait to see a Dr I know and trust who will listen to me and help me with this horrible illness. Linda
Amazing! We are so lucky to have Dr. Nathanson in the W-B area! My husband has PD and we were driving to Philly every 6 months to specialists there. But Dr. Nathanson is so much more understanding, thoughtful and contemplative. He explains what is happening now and what he hopes to accomplish and makes a plan of action. He answers all our questions willingly, with well thought-out answers. He gave us his nurse's phone number in case we have problems and we've called twice so far and got right through. We couldn't be happier that we found Dr. Nathanson - he is that good!
I've been to a handful of neurologists and I have to say,it's tough to find one you like. Dr. Nathanson was very caring and understood my situation. I have Multiple Sclerosis and I have my ups and downs and he understood them all. I would and have suggested him already to people.
I havent been a dr for my ms in years because they all seem to have no personality. I was surprised by how friendly dr Nathanson was. I am not scared to go see him and he gets my sense of humor which makes me feel comfortable. Excited that he is gona start a ms clinic here in w-b....
Dr. Nathanson is very knowledgeable and, while his manner is not warm and fuzzy, you know he cares. My husband is a PD patient and Dr. Nathanson takes the time to listen and help. We have never had the feeling of being kept waiting very long and never have the feeling of being rushed while with Dr. Nathanson. He will walk out to the desk with us to make sure his orders are carried out. We are moving with him to Geisinger in W-B we value him that much.
he is the best. he is one of the few that believed in me when no one else would. he has stopped my migraines and has helped me through many diffult medication and medical problems. you have to know his personality to understand him. i don't care about have a doc as a friend, i need a doc to believe and to help me. RSD is my condition and he is a lifesaver through this.
