    What Patients Are Saying…

    “Dr. Schubert is the first neurologist out of dozens my daughter has seen, in private practices and in hospitals, to notice that she has a mild tremor in her hands and arms when extended. Her neuro exam was far more thorough and her attention to the child’s medical history was greatly superior to what we had experienced in the past. We are following up on her recommendations and referrals.”
