    Dr Brodsky clearly understood where I am in terms of how far my PD has progressed and told us of a future procedure / technology that will address my tremor. This left me with hope because my tremor is my most disturbing symptom.

  • Mar 13, 2019

    Dr. Brodsky is great! He is extremely knowledgeable and has tremendous insight into the twists and turns to which Parkinson's disease can subject a person. He listens closely to the questions I ask and answers them clearly. His advice and recommendations are always spot-on. During an appointment he always asks, "Do you have any more questions?" and he will continue to ask it until you have no more to ask. He also responds quickly to requests I make on MyChart in-between regular appointments. Oh, and did I mention, that on top of this, he's a very friendly person who laughs easily.

  • Dec 13, 2018

    I think Dr. Brodsky is very knowledgeable, and I appreciate that he takes the time to listen to me babble on - and the only thing I can say is I don't know if he's always open to additional treatments that I've suggested - having physical dystonia 10 years. So sorry about the child - but I do think that he is a great doctor and has good bed side manner, and he is a very nice person, and I feel that he's very competent and you guys are probably very lucky to have him. Thank you.

    There was a problem with getting the (INAUDIBLE) that were needed for my visit and he got on the phone and after a lot of time, he got it. He got it done and he's....he's incredible. Great guy and I wouldn't have gotten my visit accomplished if it hasn't been for his efforts.

  • Dec 06, 2018

    I've been seeing Matt Brodsky for four years now and always coming in with my wife and when I was there I had another person with me and I jokingly said say hi to my wife and he said hello as if it was if he knew the person, even though he didn't. Anyway, it just shows that there's not real patient recognition or family recognition. And I think your neurology department needs a lot of work. Thank you.
