    Positives: They did a thorough exam, and were willing to listen to every concern, even the ones I wasn't sure were related. They put in orders for two kinds of testing, and explained their current hypotheses of potential causes very well, in a way that I could understand. They gave me an overview of what treatment might look like based on how the tests come back. I felt a sense of confidence in their knowledge and abilities to diagnose and treat my problems.

    He said one thing and then did not follow through with that. Seemed very insensitive to my problems like I was just another name and number on a page I still don't think that he is any worse than the last doctor who was the exact same way. We were hoping that he would be a big improvement as we always dreaded having to go to UK Neurology.

      D. Kumaraswamy was the most helpful physician I have seen in twenty years. I am 65 year old. He is the fifth doctor I have visited about this condition. He was the first to explain the cause and treatment to me in a way that I understood completely. He listened to me and then asked questions that showed he was searching for every bit of information from me he needed. When I was finished with my appointment, I felt as if I had real answers. I am confident in the treatment he recommended.

      Only problem was understanding doctor due to his accent. But this was mainly my fault as I am hard of hearing. However, he was very patient and repeated himself till I understood. VERY PROFESSIONAL!
