I love Dr. Filipink! I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatric neurologist. Having her as our daughter's doctor is well worth the hour and a half drive.

July 14, 2017

I know it is difficult to control but we waited for over an hour to see the doctor and part of that time was spent in a small room for 30 minutes with a 1 year old. I would have preferred to stay in the waiting room until the doctor was Available.

this was our first visit with dr Filipink since my sons neuro left the practice. she was absolutely amazing. she reviewed all my sons medical history in advance and was already up to speed before she entered the room. she spent so much time with us and was kind and explained everything to us. I feel very fortunate that she is the one taking over my sons care. he is in very capable hands with her and I would recommend her to anyone looking for the best neuro out there.

excellent experience

worst doctor I have ever met.she sad rude and due to her lack of knowledge about my daughters condition, she told me my daughter was faking everything and asked if I've ever had her tested for autism. my daughter is extremely intelligent and had more knowledge about her conditions than Dr Filipink did and I believe the doctor was offended by a 13 year olds ability to hold a mature, medical discussion.this doctor not only offended me and my daughter but she caused my daughter great emotional pain by the doubt and lack of concern.I'm disgusted that I had to sit in her office and listen to her.

Dr. Filipino was so great! She listened to our concerns and knew our child's complete medical history even though it was our first time there.

The provider and her practitioner were very kind and approachable. They made my daughter and I feel comfortable with them. Both were very thorough in examining my child.

Dr. Filipink has been so wonderful to work with. She is extremely thorough and takes the time to make sure all of my questions and concerns are addressed. Dr. Filipink is incredibly kind, compassionate and caring. I truly appreciate everything that she has done for my daughter.

Everyone is amazing with my son. They are understanding of his needs & anxieties with being touched or approached.
