What patients are saying about Dr. Redjal:

"My wife had a sudden onset seizure 10 hours from home during our vacation. Together with Dr. Linden and the ER doctor at the hospital down south, he crafted a treatment plan so we could transport her home by car. This all occurred on a Wednesday and we were in to see Dr. Redjal on Friday. We couldn't ask for more compassion and accommodation to help deal with my wife's medical condition."

"Compassionate and extremely professional. Makes the patient feel more comfortable about their condition. Highly recommend Dr. Redjal."

"Dr. Redjal is just such a nice person. He listens and he kindly answers questions. As are his staff. Very well informed and caring. All of the staff in the neurosciences division at Hopewell are excellent."

“Dr. Redjal has the rare combination of being both a good communicator and an excellent surgeon. I am gratified to have been his patient.”

“The team of Dr. Redjal, Diana, PA, and Mike, RN is amazing. Their excellence is very apparent, yet that excellence is coupled with a very comforting warmth and friendliness. I wish I had not needed their service, but I feel very blessed to have had them attending my issue. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them so much!”

“Dr. Redjal and his team are the very best at providing care for me. He saved my life and he and his team treated me perfectly, as well as the hospital.”

“Dr. Redjal and his team put me at ease and addressed any questions I had. Mike and Diana (his PA and nurse) were attentive and actually listened to what I had to say and none of it was lost in translation when relayed to Dr. Redjal. This was most impressive.”

“Dr. Redjal listened and answered all my concerns. He provided me with a diagnosis, plan of action, expectations, but most of all was the sweetest and most caring doctor.”
