It was my first experience visiting Dr. Mikesell and overall it was a great experience. He was very understanding and spent a lot of time with me learning my history and coming up with a plan to prevent and manage my illness. Also, I was pleased that I was able to move up my appointment since I was in pain, and they were able to see me the next day.

I went 4 different doctors, including my previous neurologist,urgent care, and the emergency room, with no solution to my medical issue. Then I met Dr. Mikesell after my PCP recommended him, and within 10 minutes of talking with him, he had figured it out! Two weeks after taking the medication he prescribed, I was back to normal! I can't thank him enough!

Dr Mikesell is not always clear when explaining diagnosis and path forward with expected outcomes. Complex area of medicine - so more time explaining would help. We are not brain specialists - we are patients with issues that are not easy to understand.

I was so pleased with the treatment received. I suffered a bad concussion and needed a follow up ASAP. This doctor was amazing. I was dizzy and so nauseous. The doctor took his time with explaining everything and coming ups with a plan for my care. He also reassured me that I would recover fully and that what I was feeling was normal. He took the time to explain the medication he was prescribing and how it worked and the best time to take it. I have no words to express how comfortable he made me feel.

I definitely recommend Dr. Timothy Mikesell, DO. He is an outstanding neurologist. He reduced my mom's Parkinson's medicine to reduce her dyskinesias (involuntary facial and torso movements), which is a side effect of her medicine, and increased another medicine to reduce them. I saw also torso movements five months ago, but, when I called to talk to him, I was advised that he is at Illinois Masonic Hospital, rather, than transferring my call to talk to him, or leave my telephone number, for him to call me back.

Unlike the last visit, I noticed that my Doctor did not take as much interest, nor give much attention to what I had to say. It was a hurried visit and when I realized that he was trying to move along, I gave in to it and let the visit go at his pace and left. There were not much interest in what I wanted to discuss and as much as I do understand that it is not easy for a doctor to remember too many of their patients, I was however disappointed with the lack of interest and what I considered to be a well-performed dismissal of my medical case & queries.
