How was your experience with the doctor?First visit with him today, and I will say he is very terse and to the point with his questions. I took it as abrasive at first, but began to understand that he is very methodical and wants to get right down to the issue, which I can respect. Had a good sense of humor as well, but as I said he seems to be very business-oriented which i prefer because it didn’t feel like my time was being wasted.

How was your experience with the doctor?Not good! 1) Did not allow me to explain to the story. He always said later....... but later never came 2) I felt like he only focused on record keeping/ typing rather than on patient's short term long term treatment. 3) He pushed me to use his EEG and Dopler team. I had my left side numb. He recommended aspirin until his team is available and told me to wait almost three weeks. 4) I had to go to LIJ Emergency as the numbness continuously repeating. LIJ did an excellent job and asked me to follow up with him. 5) I visited Dr. Neil after my emergency visit. Again, he focused on typing. His office did EEG. I lost confidence in him when he told me what was prescribed by LIJ to continue or not.....He said it is up to me. He left me to decide. I was expecting Neurology who works for NYU will tell me....He said he can not decide until I go for Sleep EEG. Until then what should I do.....continue medication..he has no clue.. 6) He certainly does not meet the minimum patients expectation. May be he is okay for the people who does not know how to find a better doctor out there but he is not for me.

How was your experience with the doctor?Where to begin? I've been a patient of Dr. Rosenthal for many years now. He is one of the very few doctors that is ALWAYS is on time, where I feel like we genuinely talk about my migraines and the strategy to dealing with them and if I've ever had an issue, the office is both responsive and supportive. I also want to highlight Nicole, who manages the front desk and SO MUCH MORE. I've lost track of the amount of times she's been helpful with medication or insurance issues (that are within her control). She's always friendly and she's been exceedingly understanding anytime I've had an migraine issue and needed to be seen. I'm in awe of how much she handles and the care and attention she shows to each patient. I sincerely recommend this doctor and his entire staff.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rosenthal literally saved my daughter's life.  She had been feeling dizzy and had not gotten an explanation for her symptoms from her doctors.   Dr. Rosenthal saw her on an emergency basis.  He is a neurologist, but diagnosed her with life threatening anemia. She was admitted to the hospital for an emergency transfusion and recovered well.   Dr. Rosenthal is an excellent diagnostician. He is personable and empathetic.  He is the antidote to the corporate, soulless medicine that is increasingly being practiced in the USA.   I can't recommend him highly enough.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been a patient of Dr. Rosenthal's for almost 15 years.  He is caring, smart, efficient and patient centered.  He always returns calls and has seen me on short notice, even leading up to Hurricane Sandy.  Nicole is great, efficient, friendly and always returns calls.

How was your experience with the doctor?Despite listing my insurance as an accepted insurance, my ZocDoc appointment was cancelled and then I received a call claiming that they do not accept my insurance. When asking questions, it was clear that the receptionist wanted nothing to do with me.After the encounter, I reached out to my insurance to see what was going on. Turns out the receptionist falsely claimed that they are not a provider. My insurance attempted to reach out to their office in order to find out what the issue was and why I was being denied service. As a mature adult, the receptionist just ignored all calls from my insurance provider. After my insurance attempted to contact their office nearly a dozen times over the course of two days without success, I attempted to reach out to them to discuss the situation myself. It turns out they are ignoring my phone calls as well.Knowing that they are a provider, and given the fact that my referral was already approved for their services, I attempted to schedule a second appointment through ZocDoc. In the notes, I gave a detailed explanation of the situation and provided them with all of the necessary information to bill my insurance and contact them if there was a mistake (including referral reference number, provider reference #, etc.). I even offered to discuss the situation further via phone if that was necessary. The receptionist cancelled my appointment without explanation and didn't even bother to call me to further elucidate the situation. Needless to say, if you would like to be treated like a human being and know that your situation or issue matters, go elsewhere.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rosenthal was everything I would want for a professional neurologist & doctor. I suffered a concussion after a snowboarding accident in Canada and was told by the Urgent Care clinic to get 2 CT scans, although I said my symptoms were improving and it was a week after my accident and the Canadian ER didn’t suggest one. The 2nd Urgent Care doctor did suggest at a minimum to see a neurologist so I scheduled an appt. Dr. Rosenthal was very prompt, smart, and had a great disposition and manner. He was quite thorough in telling me what to expect from the appt. He found no reason to suggest getting a CT scan, which I was very happy about being able to avoid all the radiation. He did explain that I was having some symptoms of Post-Concussion syndrome and gave me realistic things to avoid/do. One symptom I was having was my hands falling asleep at night, and from that, Dr. Rosenthal did suggest an NCS and EMG which I agreed to and was very happy to do as that did appear to be a lingering/exasperated issue. I look forward to seeing Dr. Rosenthal for any future needs and highly recommend him for a neurology consult & as a neurologist. Thank you!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rosenthal is phenomenal. I was nervous to see a neurologist for the first time. He immediately made me feel at ease and comfortable. His bedside manner is the best I've ever experienced. He joked with me while I was getting tests done so I wouldn't be nervous, spent plenty of time with me to make sure I understood our next steps, and made sure all of my questions were answered. I wish all doctors were like him. I hope not to have to see him many more times (for health reasons), but otherwise, I would always look forward to my visits with him. I couldn't recommend him more.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rosenthal is an excellent doctor. He and his staff are very kind and accommodating and they make you feel at ease. I went into his office for headaches right before the holidays and he went out of his way to take care of me and get me all the tests I needed even though he was leaving for vacation. He is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and kindhearted. I would highly recommend him to anyone as it is obvious that he cares deeply about his work and his patients and knows what he is doing. Dr. Rosenthal is the best!

How was your experience with the doctor?While I thought Dr. Rosenthal was quite nice, my experience in his office was less than pleasant. His receptionist was quite rude when I arrived to my first visit a few mins late (subway problems) and his office is outdated and a bit dirty. But still decided to give it another try in my follow-up On my second app, tI had an EGG done, in the second room, and there was dust everywhere and a certain smell. I wanted to run out of there, but felt like I shouldn't. I will definitely not be going back.
