The visit with the dictor was not rushed and lasted a nice ling time. I had many questions and these were answered. Uncommon now days to have a doctor slow down and take the time needed to answer my questions and ask me in depth questions. I really appreciate him.

The provider himself is good. The support staff for scheduling and availability of appointments is poor.

Dr. Ginocchio was extremely professional, kind, and very helpful. He explained my whole situation in a way. I could understand it. He was very thorough in his testing as well as asking me questions. I felt he understood completely. What was going on with my back and my neuropathy. He gave some helpful suggestions for me for the future, I would certainly recommend him as an excellent neurologist.

Dr Ginocchio is awesome

Doctor communicated well, listened unusually well, was open and kind toward me and expressed care for my problems and needs. He assured I was as comfortable as possible during a challenging test and discussed results with me right away. Given his specialty I hope I won't have to see him again. Given my condition I might have to. If so, I'm sure the visit will be caring, supportive, and informative.

Over the last 57 years following a motorcycle accident, I have have been under the direct care of at lest 5 neurologists. Dr. Ginnochio is by far the most perceptive, knowledgeable and personable specialist I have encountered. He truly listens and considers all symptoms I describe. He thoughtfully adjusts treatments & meds accordingly.

Dr. G. Is excellent- however the scheduling process was painful and frustrating. Plus the Myhealth app is useless for requesting an appointment with Dr.G.

I love the attention that Dr. Ginocchio paid to my concern and his excellent explanations of everything.

Having moved 26 times during my lifetime and engaged with many many physicians, I would say Christopher Ginocchio is among the top five physicians I have known. His medical knowledge is vast. His inpatient doctor to patient examining room demeanor is excellent. His overall presence is far superior to other physicians I have seen over my lifetime. I am [age removed] years old and counting. Christopher Ginocchio makes me feel comfortable, and willing to discuss my medical problems without hesitation. He has a marvelous sense of humor. His directness and "cut to the chase" discussion with me about my neurological situation puts me at ease. I like to be "told the truth" and not left trying to figure what was said to me. I consider Christopher Ginocchio a friend as well as my neurologist. I cannot praise him enough other to say than if my adult children needed neurological care and advice I would tell them to see him.

Dr. Ginocchio was very friendly and very informative. If he had any questions on what he was going to do to me, he would explain the options.

  Sep 27, 2023
First time visit. I was very impressed by everyone at the officeFriendly, kind and diligent

  Sep 26, 2023
As a general comment, I wish that doctors could spend more time discussing the situation and having dialogue rather than needing to rushing off to the next patient. In other words book less appointments to allow for greater connection between doctor and patient.

  Sep 19, 2023
Dr. Ginocchio is the absolute best. I'm an ancient patient. Though Chris is out of network, I'll never change.

  Aug 8, 2023
The nurse Victoria is very nice, always has a smile. Dr. Chris is very good and thorough, much better than my last Neurologist. You can see that he really thinks about my situation.
