  • Oct 30, 2018

    I really didn't spend that much time with the doctor, it was a brief meeting, basically an introduction and a review of the program. So I didn't have a full opportunity to give you an opinion. But what I did experience was positive.

  • Aug 16, 2018

    I, I had my first meeting with Dr. Quinn and he was very interested in wanting to know the difficulties that I had been going through. And after I had answered one thing and he said, tell me more, and I did and as we talked together and he got acquainted with the medical problems that I was having, I just felt more and more comfortable about working with him on behalf of my health. And it was truly a gift as a whole for me.

    Excellent

  • Jul 25, 2018

    This provider is a highly skilled doctor. He is warm, compassionate, and pleasant. He answers all my questions carefully and in cases when he doesn't know the answers, he says so. His recommendations are helpful and wise. I'd say he is one of the top 5 doctors I've had. (I have had doctors at University Medical Centers around the country and have sought out the best doctors practicing there.)

  • Jul 18, 2018

    He kept me waiting over 20 minutes from when staff told me he?d start the procedure. He could not complete the procedure after repeated attempts. Left me with a very sore back from multiple punctures although no other lingering issues. Whether this is his ?fault? or my own physiology, no one can be sure. He supposedly has performed many of these and seems like a nice person. He kept checking with me to ensure I was OK. I was perturbed but patient. Fortunately the staff informed me we will skip this test for the ADNI stidy and not try again or attempt another approach.

  • Jul 12, 2018

    Our experience with Dr. Quinn, over the last 5 years, has been excellent. He is a superb neurologist and a good rapport with me and my wife.

  • Jul 12, 2018

    Dr. Joseph Quinn is a wonderful doctor. We have total faith in him, and I think he has provided wonderful care for my husband.

  • Jul 11, 2018

    It is always a positive experience. He was tired from a long morning, but he didn?t rush me and carefully answered all my questions. He took the time to discuss some of the conferences we have attended and seemed genuinely interested in our feedback.
