Ratings for Dr. Anna Alshansky
My son was suffering for months with chronic motion sickness, sweating, dilated pupils. She had no diagnosis, but sent him to vestibular rehab. He got much worse, terribly ill. When we returned she said 'I didn't really think it would work anyway.'. I was stunned. I was dragging a suffering child to rehab twice a week for 6 weeks for nothing! It was not just what she said, it was the callousness of her demeanor that was so hurtful. She had no recommendations, no referrals, she simply escorted me out and let me know I did not need to come back. ps- My son's condition was finally diagnosed. It IS neurological. She is not only heartless, but a lousy doctor.
I just want to say my son deserves the best and it hurts when it feels like the doctor is just their to get paid not reallly caring for thier patients. No communication to her patients what so ever, also to find out that she left the state perminantly when i went to an previous appt. just want the best for my son but i wouldnt recomment her at all to anyone . Many people told me yet i didnt listen.
The worst bedside manner I ever. Office staff canceled my appointment by leaving a message at the wrong number, then was rude to me when we showed up on time to our appointment. When we finally got in, Alshansky was rude to us, rough with my infant son, and had the nerve to respond to one of my questions with "he has brain damage, what do you expect?" We left office in the middle of the appointment and found a new neurologist. I wouldn't bring a dog to see her. It's a shame she is also the pediatric neurologist associated with Danbury hospital. After a trip to the ER where we found out they were planning on calling her in, we left the hospital rather then see her. An ER staff member actually told us, "I don't blame you!" It is amazing this woman is allowed near children!
Making an appointment is very difficult. Not once I get someone to answer the call; always needed to leave a message. This office seems more concerning about their appointments than the patients. The doctor and the staff practiced according to a process not with their hearts. I don't feel any passion from them. Very disappointed.
Extremely helpful for our child who required major head surgery. Took us in with his twin brother when the doctor suspected there was an issue with him immediately. Absolutely love her and would recommend her to anyone, Very reassuring, she may seem brusque but really is not, great with children.
