Dear Dr. Germin, FAANEM at CNS
Thank you for providing excellent neurological care to me for many years. Your many Board Certifications are very impressive but more than those are the way you manage your practice with quality service at the core of your values and you hire top notch staff.
Dr. Tausch is one of the most caring and helpful providers I have been fortunate to have. I could have not asked for a more skilled, kind and compassionate neurologist.
My words cannot truly express my gratitude to Dr. Germin. He saved my life 3X’s. 3X’s I lost all memory. It was only through Dr. Germin’s treatment and caring attitude/manner, both times memory recovered. Dr. Germin thought I would be able to walk only a short time, but here I am several years later walking, remembering. Often I shudder to think what my life would be like today had I not met Dr. Germin.
Very impressed with the staff and Dr. Germin is very detailed in explaining diagnostic testing and results. Great experience for first time with neurologist.
Dr. Tausch is always thorough. Especially my first visit last July. Never rushes me when I talk to him about my symptoms.
