Dr Alex has such a unique approach to medicine. He guides the conversation so that the patient (my son, myself or my daughter) talks about how things have been going. I personally have been with Dr Alex for 5 years, our son, has bShow moreeen with him for almost 3 years and one of our daughter has been a patient for 1 year. We followed him from his last practice because he has helped all of us get our lives back. With every visit he will tweak the smallest thing if we have had very many “flare ups” with migraines. He never wants you to be in bed an entire day. His goal is for your rescue medicine to work in about an hour. I have never had a medical provider care so much, think so much about my case or my children’s or be as available as Dr Alex. I don’t know how he does it but I’m so thankful he does!!

Will S. • August 09, 2020

Glad I was able to stay connected with Dr. Alex! I feel that, after seeing numerous other neurological professionals, that he fully understands what the underlying issues are when it comes to my migraines. Rather than push Big PhaShow morerma medications at me, he has recommended other possible solutions to help me receive some relief. I'm not leaving his practice anytime soon and very much appreciate not only his candor, but his overall empathy and professionalism.

Dr Alex takes the time to explain everything and answer all our questions. Top doctor in our mind.

Laurence F. • September 23, 2023

Very thorough, informative, and kind.

Courtney T. • July 12, 2023

Dr. Feoktistov is knowledgeable, thorough, and compassionate. He has been treating me for migraines for more than ten years. Prior to becoming Dr. Feoktistov’s patient, I was in the ER multiple times a year, and now I have fewer than one migraine (well controlled with rescue medication) per month. Life changing.

Ann S. • June 13, 2023

Very friendly, extremely helpful

Would highly recommend Dr. Alex. Appointments are never rushed, and I appreciate that he offers multiple treatment options; not a “one treatment fits all” headache approach that I’ve experienced with other neurologists.

Denice W. • April 22, 2022

Elizabeth L. • March 11, 2022

I really feel optimistic after my first consult with Dr. Feoktistov. He took a lot of time getting to know me and learning about my headache history.

Shawn T. • January 12, 2022

Dr Feoktistov is one of the best drs I have met. Knowledgeable, caring, attentive. Never rushing. Very patient. Strongly recommend.

Tatyana K. • July 12, 2021

Again great care from Dr. Alex! He continues to show empathy and a full understanding of how I feel and provides options I can take to work on allievating my daily migraines. More than knowledgeable, I am more than confident that the research he works on when not with his patients will lead to future-forward methods for migraine relief.

Bryan Drew K. • October 31, 2020

So happy to have Dr Alex back!!!

Amy V. • September 18, 2020

Drew K. • September 05, 2020

Dr. Alex is warm, kind, and so clearly invested in his work. He takes time to listen to patient concerns, explain his thought process in layperson terms, and collaborate on treatment plans based on patient goals and values. He is deliberate in his decision making, and I trust him to make conservative and smart choices.
