Dr. Bercovici, Let my briefly describe why I am writing this message, for the past 5 years I have been struggling with Post Concussion issues, my first being from getting hit in the head with a hockey puck while watching the game, and to the most recent being last summer when I hit my temple against the corner of my cupboard. Since the last one I have had countless issues this past year. From Dizziness, headaches each day, to an onset of floaters and finding lights to be far to hard to be around, I cant be in an envioroment with people in large groups, I even have trouble walking straight. I have developed visual snow, and just feel this insane pressure in my head. I had an MRI done last July, but there was nothing shown, I am in dire need of some help, I have seen 2 Opthomologists this past year, and am trying very hard to get in to see a neurologist, I currently live in Kentucky for schooling, so I fly back to Toronto for medical (I have no coverage in the states). If you could call me or email me to talk, I would be ever so grateful. Blessings, Jonathan Ullman

Dr. Bercovici. My daughter is a patient at Sick kids and has absent complex seizures. Here seirzers where control for a period of one year but since October of 2016 we can't get them under control. My daughter under went invasive eeg maping at Sick kids and unfortunately they couldn't move forward with the actual removal of the scar tissue because it was in her visual field. With that said it seems that as her seizures are not controlled and her neurologist and team seem to feel the upping of the medications is the answer. As we have increased her meds the seizures are still happening. My husband and I are really frustrated and all though Sick kids is an awesome hospital including the staff;we throw our hands up with questions as to should we consultant with another neurologist! May I also add that along side her medications we are giving her CBD OIL in hopes that will give some relief. Looking on some advice as too what should we consider? Please help our baby. She's 12 and has been suffering from birth Thank you

Hello Dr. Bercovici, I have been diagnosed with absence seizure since I was 3. How for the past couple years it has changed from absence seizure however not aware of what kind. The doctor I saw did not really pay attention to this issue as I had an incident at my office where I was taken to the hospital. It was something I had never experienced before and I don't remember what really happened. I was only informed by my colleagues in regards to the incident. I'm trying to find a new doctor as my current one does not seem to be interested in my condition after I had informed her of the incident. Just wondering if I can get my family doctor to provide a referral to see you

Dr Bercovici, I am suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia for 5 years. In the beginning I was wrong diagnosis as teeth pain, but a year before, I was diagnosis Trigeminal Neuralgia. It has been affecting of my daily life. It is very painful when touching lips, eating, sometimes even speaking, I cannot eat. I have bad experience with my previous neurologist. He didn't give me any advise, not even giving me any medication, he just said nothing can do! So I start looking for a good Neurologist that can cure me and give me advice. I find you Dr Bercovici on this website. Now sure if I find the right person that can help me of this issue. Barry

I am worried that my doctor made a bad decision listening to me and referring me to you Dr. Bercovici, I called today to 416 6224762 and a receptionist who was very rude informed me yes they got my referral and the Dr will decide when to book , in spite the referral was sent over two weeks ago, she informed me they are scheduling for December and not UNTIL the doctor decided if and when he will see me. Serious my entire life is on hold because of a seizure, my independence has been taken away, I can accept if my scans prove something is wrong BUT if nothing shows up to why I had one seizure is it fair, Why do you accept referrals knowing you are months away to even looking at the referral to decide if you will in fact see the patient? I am so disappointed I was foolish and chose a Dr who is far too busy to look at referrals to at least let the patient know perhaps or assist me to be seen sooner to another colleague. Sorry to offend anyone as I am aware your a great Doc not to diminish your greatness and of your great credit.

Good evening, Thank you for your message and I apologize for the way you were treated. I tried to call you but the line was busy. I hope we can connect and resolve this issue. As a neurologist I do accept a lot of patients but I also decline referrals where I don think I can help to prevent myself from being too busy. Most epilepsy specialist as you know have about 1 year wait list. I try to triage appropriately as do most doctors so that patients with urgent issues are seen earlier than those with less urgent issues. This is common practice for almost every doctor. We also have cancellation lists if you are willing to come on short notice. The day you called we had 3 no shows, and two of them confirmed the appointments but never showed up! this is obviously frustrating for all of us to try and make sure everyone gets seen in a timely manner. I hope you can reconsider and accept our appointment.

I am hoping that you received my comments. I am searching for a new neurologist after some horrible experieces with my current one. I am hoping that you can help me. I am on medication for seizures and it is well managed but my neurologist had switched them and I went through pure misery for six months before he switched me back. I am okay now but I don't feel comfortable with him and I lost confidence in him. I am going to ask my family doctor to refer me to you and hopefully you will take me on as a patient, Thank you Karen

Hi Dr. Bercovici, I had a bacterial infection on my face (folliculitis) and I was being treated for it by a dermatologist with a number of antibiotics. In the end, I was given Ciprofloxacin (750mg twice a day) after I had already been on a 7 day dose of 500mg twice a day) Ever since taking this antibiotic I have had serious side effects such as non stop muscle cramping and pain, anxiety, my joints locking, serious fatigue, my tendon is seriously sore, weakness, lost 16 lbs in 2 weeks. If I got a referral, do you think you could help me ? Thanks ! Brad

good evening, thank you for the referral. To be honest I'm not sure if and how I can help. Some neurologists can also do EMG / nerve conduction studies which may be helpful in cramping etc. since I don't do these tests perhaps it would be best to see someone else?

Dear Doctor Bercovici! Its always been a pleasure to meet you at the appointments. You are very friendly and approachable and deal with the situation in a practical manner. I have great confidence in your treatment and I am doing extremely well under your care. Thank you! However, its been extremely hard to change appointments at your office. I have an appointment for June 12th 2018 and I needed to change it to another date as it conflicts with my school. My new appointment is in November which is 5 months apart. According to the office if you request a change of date then you start from the bottom of the list which is in November 2018. I hope the office has a better way of managing appointments and could be more polite in communicating with patients.

Dr Eduardo bercovici, my name is Rebecca and I was a patient of dr Gordon's for the last 6 and a half years. He is no longer practising and therefore I am looking for a new neurologist. 7 years ago I lost a baby at 4 and a half months. It was my first. I delivered the baby and in the process started to hemorrhage. I was helicoptered to mount Sinai and after three days they did a double uterine embolism which finally stopped the bleeding. However from the blood loss, the epidural and the things they did to save my life I have some nerve damage throughout my lower extremities. There is a lot more detail but too long to write. Would you be the type of neurologist that I need? If not could you recommend someone. Thank you so much.

Good evening and I apologize for the delay. I would be happy to see for consultation but if this is something that needs nerve conduction studies I must admit i would not be the best person as i do not do these tests myself. Although my wait list is long always happy to provide my opinion.
