Dr. Michael Brisman was a God send! Having suffered from trigeminal neuralgia for around 18 months, being treated with medications that ceased bringing any relief, under the care of a different Neurologist, I was so very fortunate to find Dr. Brisman. After reviewing the available options I chose to have the microvascular decompression surgery which completely stopped the extremely painful effects of this condition. The Mayo clinic refers to trigeminal neuralgia as 'the most painful human condition known to science' and I can attest that it is brutal. Dr. Brisman bought complete and lasting relief for me. My operation was on November 11th, 2011 and I've been able to live a life free of this awful condition ever since. Please see Dr. Brisman if you are suffering from this. You will thank him every day thereafter.
If anyone you know has trigeminal neuralgia do not hesitate to let them contact Dr. Michael Brisman. He is extremely qualified and compassionate. I have had trigeminal neuralgia and Dr. Brisman has operated on me with success.
I had a consultative call about a facial nerve disorder and Dr. Brisman was patient with every question and gave thorough and thoughtful explanations, much appreciated!
Dr. Michael Brisman saved my life by having done a resection of the prolactinoma I had in my pituitary gland. Since then, many of my endocrine functions were restored. Dr. Brisman is a one of a kind neurosurgeon. You can literally count such specialists by ones in the US, if not in the entire world. It takes passion in medicine, eagerness to change people’s lives, incredible focus and orientation to detail, knowledge and unique expertise. Dr. Brisman has it all. I also would like to acknowledge the professionalism and care that the staff of the facility approach patients with. Special thanks to Romana, who works as the intake coordinator in Dr. Brisman’s Rockville Centre location. She does her job outstandingly. To briefly introduce myself, I am the Member of Medical Expert Committee at the WHO, President of Public Health Advisory of the Borough of Brooklyn (yes, I came to Dr. Brisman all the way from Brooklyn to Long Island), International Consultant at the IOLG with the UN.
Very Professional and Knowledgeable
Dr Brisman is very kind and helpful, however.. the staff is completely terrible. I have a chronic condition and one day I had a flare up, and a coworker helped me to call Dr Brisman’s office to make an appointment.. he doesn’t speak very well English and told the secretary that he WILL MAKE HIS BEST TO SPEAK, but the lady told him to CALL BACK WHENEVER HE FINDS SOMEONE WHO CAN SPEAK ENGLISH! How rude! I can only have something to say: despicable staff.
Excellent. I have been seeing him a little over 3 years. Care & service is excellent. Thank you Dr. Brisman & staff.
This man is a life saver!!!!!!!! I’m so grateful to have him as my Neirosegeon. I feel safe to know I can call on Dr Brisman at anytime of the day or nite and he’s there.
Several years ago, Dr. Brisman performed a brain biopsy for my father. There were 'complications' as we were told (by his partner) and he came out of the biopsy half paralyzed. Luckily, he regained the ability to walk pretty quickly but not the ability to use his left hand. Dr. Brisman didn't even have the audacity to show up the next day and see how my father was doing, or the day after that-- or at all. Not even a phone call. It's nice that other people have had pleasant experiences with him, I only wish I could say the same. I would never ever recommend him.
I had trigeminal neuralgia for several months and was maxed out on all the meds. I finally went to Dr Micheal Brisman who performed an ablation on it and in 5 days the pain was completely 100% gone. That lasted about a year untill the nerve came back to life again, so the 2nd time I did not wait and had it done immediately. I got all my pre-surgical testing done followed by the surgery within a week. He is truly a life saver and I'm also grateful to his receptionist who was forever patient on the phone with me when I was hardly able to even speak. It has been about 4 years now and I havent had a single flare up since. I've read that some people fear the surgery, but it was so quick and I was out the same day. The only thing that felt different besides not being in pain, was a small area of numbness inside were it was done. My skin and mouth still have all its sensation. I feel it's the equivalent of getting a tooth pulled and having an empty space there that you quickly get used to. Should my nerve ever fire up again, I would have it done again without hesitation. If you are suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, please dont put it off. Thank God for this surgery and to Dr Brisman and his staff. They are absolutely wonderful.
Kudos to Dr Michael Brisman. He is an awesome surgeon as well as a comforting professional. My surgery went so well and I had no ill effects. I was walking the halls of the hospital the very next day and was released the day after. I highly recommend him. Oh and one more thing.....the way he did his cutting with such expertise has allowed my hair to cover all scars :) Thank you, Dr Brisman.
Dr. Brisman has been my Dr for many years now. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor. Dr. Brisman is always available when I need him.
I have a condition known as Trigeminal Neuralgia. If anyone does not know what this horrific condition, look it up. Dr. Michael Brisman performed my surgery two years ago and he gave me back my life. I have never met a more genuine, kind and compassionate human being as he is. He is one of a kind and someone I will never forget.
Excellent experience I finally got an accurate diagnosis. I am so grateful to the doctor for his care and expertise. Wonderful support staff

Thanks to Dr. Brisman I have my life back! I was suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia and Dr. Brisman performed a MVD. From the moment I recovered from my surgery I have never had a day of pain again! Dr. Brisman was kind and compassionate from the start and never deviated from being such. I will never be able to thank him enough!
I went to Dr. Brisman for Trigeminal Nerve pain. We met, I told him my problem, and we decided on a date for Gamma Knife Surgery. The surgery went great and I am happy to say I’m pain free now. I would recommend Dr. Brisman & his staff to anyone.
Best doctor I've ever seen. Performed MVD surgery for my trigeminal neuralgia in January 2017 and was not only an amazing surgeon, but extremely kind, patient, and reassuring. I would recommend Dr. Brisman to anyone I know.
