Dr. Ajay Goenka was EXCELLENT! I feel strongly we received good information for basing our decisions on how to move forward. He spent adequate time understanding our situation. Please extend our sincere thank you to the doctor. His insight is extremely valuable.

It was an overwhelming experience (due to diagnosis) however, everyone made us feel very cared for and took time to answer our questions in great detail. We were also able to get follow up testing scheduled in a very timely manner. We were offered additional resources and contact information if we thought of any additional questions. So far, we could not be happier with the Dayton Children's Neurology team.

He is very nice and listens, and caring and funny, and made my daughter happy to be there and not nervous. Just a great all around doctor.
