    He explained my MRI images and gave me a plan for future imaging and follow ups. He wasn¿t quick to jump to surgery which I appreciate. He showed compassion and listened.

    Dr. Brockmeyer was truly amazing! He was so thorough letting us know exactly what was going on and what the outcomes would be after surgery. He took the time to answer all our questions and concerns. He put our minds at ease

    Dr. Brockmeyer is just what I was looking for in a neurosurgeon specializing in my condition (Chiari I). He was very patient and courteous, but at the same time demonstrated a concern for a timely response to me with regard to my imaging (MRI) forwarded from my local Dr. His timely response was a surprise to me given the fact that he is a nationally recognized expert and other in my peer group have told me it has taken months for a surgeon to get back to them. I very much recommend this Dr. as a place to get a second (or first) opinion. If I decide to go the surgical route, I will provide feedback on that at that time.

    Dr. Brockmeyer was friendly and has explained my mild Chiari in an easily understandable manner and answered all my questions. He went over my mri images and took his time with me. I left feeling well cared for.

    Even though the appointment didn't go exactly as i was thinking it was going to go, he was very kind and made me feel very taken care of. He was very thorough in his explanations of everything which helped me understand why certain decisions were beneficial. He was great in answering all of my questions and wanted to make sure that I knew that he was going to take care of me and follow up to make sure that if my condition got worse, he was going to make sure I was taken care of!

    Most scatterbrained doctor we've ever met. Couldn't follow what I was saying. Didn't communicate well. Contradicted himself at times.
