She is a brilliant physician who is extremely knowledgeable of many symptoms and related issues of the nervous system. She listens to her patients with compassion and understanding. I would not be as functional as I am without her and her IV Lidocaine infusion program. I have had a recent issue with my stomach. She was the only physician who put on a regiment to aid in relieving my symptoms (not even my gastroenterologist or dietician could relieve my symptoms). Dr. Valovska should be recognized for outstanding dedication to her patients.”
