Went for consult in summer. Just be warned you'll see a nurse for most of visit. I didn't feel any warmth at all from nurse or dr. And was hard for me to go this Far East. Will look elsewhere

Dr Devinsky is the bomb. I have been treated by over 20 neurologists in the US and Canada for 34 years. It was Dr Devinsky who gave me my life of being seizure free. He is the most compassionate and caring doctor I have ever met. He truly cares about the well being of his patients. He is very responsive to all questions, be it during a visit, email, or phone call or fax. He responds by the end of the day. Kudos Dr. D, miss you!!!

Dr. Devinsky is the genius who was able to get my seizures under control. He gave me my life back.

This Dr is so over-rated. Maybe if he listened to his Patients, instead of playing games with his Patients' lives & playing God, he may actually be a very good Dr. Once was enough!!! I know someone who has gone for years & still no clue. Oh but he is on TV & he is so important!!! That's what I once thought until he spent time on Conference weekend, leaving us sitting with his Cronies for days. Saw too many people there with their heads bandaged from God knows what!!! Probably experimenting again. Reminded me of when they used to do lobotomies. Scary & never again. Hey keep writing your books & playing Mr. Genius. You don't know the difference from seizures & sleep disorders? Really?

I have been with Dr.Devinsky for close to 20 years now. Even though I live more than 60 miles from the office, I would not consider seeing anyone but him. He is dedicated and passionate, as is the entire staff. The best care I've ever received.

Best doctor ever! Been with him for close to 20 years now. I live out of state and work within walking distance of Johns Hopkins hospital. I still would not trust anyone else. He is excellent at his job and I appreciate all that he has done through the years for me.
