In 2009 when I was 30 years old “Dr” Carlini diagnosed me as having Parkinson’s Disease after seeing him about a tight light muscle. Well, Parkinson’s medication gives you Parkinsonism if you don’t have Parkinson’s making it appear like you do. He tricked me then entered me into HIS study on the drug Azalec. 8 years later I have to come off my meds due to insurance issues and my “condition” seems to improve! Fast forward to 2020 and I am having seizures and am, unknown to me, given a referral to see Carlini again. He gets mad at ME for the diagnosis and then tells my Dr that Improbably am not having real seizures and I should be treated as psych. This is for no other reason that he is upset that he flubbed a diagnosis in order to widen his pool of research candidates! He ruined my life and lives of my family!
“Doctor” Carlini is a hack, at best! I was given a referral to see him in ‘09 for a few tight muscles in my right rear thigh. I left with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease and new prescriptions. I was then promptly added to HIS study for the drug Azalec to “slow the progression.” Little did I know that the new symptoms I had were caused by the Parkinson’s medications. The medications cause Parkinsonism in people that do not have Parkinson’s Disease. This made me appear to have a suddenly worsening case of Parkinson’s Disease. By the way, I was 32 years old! 8 years later I had to stop the medications due to insurance issues and my symptoms seemed to slowly improve! Fast forward to 2020 and I am sent back to Carlini and he is mad at me! Tarnished his record maybe. He then tells the er doc that my seizures are more than likely fake and I should be treated as psych. The man ruined my life and the lives of my family and he is blaming me! I read his old notes from ‘09, I showed no symptoms
He was rude and dealt with Alzheimers Disease in a brutal and insensitive manner.
Never talked about what I came to see him for. Would not except that I had already done the tests he wants to order. Im not going back.
Very polite. He asked questions without putting a person on the spot. He made eye contact. He ordered other tests that were appropriate.
Out of the 5 visits we had with Dr. Carlini 3 of them were terrible and 2 neutral. The last 2 visits he was very rude with my mother. He spoke about her as though she was not even in the room and the things he said were very upsetting to her. We have discontinued care.
Dr. Carlini is a Briliant Doctor. He diagnosed me with CNSV. Without him I would be dead. He knew what no other Doctor in Grants Pass or Medford could figure out. I love Doctor Carlini. I think he has a great mind. And refuse to see any other neurologist in the valley.
( Introduction to Neurology) Neurology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. It has two major divisions: Central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord Peripheral nervous system: all other neural elements, such as eyes, ears, skin, and other sensory receptors A doctor who specializes in neurology is called a neurologist. The neurologist treats disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, such as: Cerebrovascular disease, such as stroke Demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis Headache disorders Infections of the brain and peripheral nervous system Movement disorders, such as Parkinsons disease Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrigs disease) Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy Spinal cord disorders Speech and language disorders Neurologists do not perform surgery. If one of their patients requires surgery, they refer them to a neurosurgeon.) I have had many Neurologists in my life time to treat my Seizure disorder. I did not need a doctor to hold my hand and tell me how much better thing will be because unless new treatments come around we will not. Anyone who feels that Dr. Carlini is a bad Neurologist has not been to many of this type of doctor. I think this doctor is knowledgeable and would trust his opinion because it has concurred with all my other doctors. To all of you that wallow in self pity, Happiness is an inside job and sometimes what ails us cant be fixed. We only have to have someone like Dr. Carlini to make sure we are in check.
I did not like this doctor at all. I only saw him once and am very glad to not have to go back. He never made any eye contact with me, only typed on his computer the entire time. He seemed very cold, and his attitude seemed very rude when he responded to my answers to his questions. I was very uncomfortable during my appointment with him. He barely spent any time with me and I did not feel like he listened to me at all. I know hes supposed to be one of the best but I would not recommend him to anyone.
All i have to say is they are trying too shove pills down my throat to fix this problem when really they havent even taken the time to look at the real problem. I would not referr.
Refusing to make eye contact and abruptly leaving the room without explanation are the LEAST offensive actions of this ridiculous man. He insulted the diagnosis of my previous neurologist, spoke to me in a lecturing, condescending manner, ignored my questions, asked questions of me and immediately interrupted my answers. I have nothing good to say. I had two appointments with him both were the same. There will be no third appointment. life is too short for the frustrating experience of time spent with Walter Carlini.
Hi is one of the most vigilant and thorough physicians I have ever had. I have a lot because I suffered a severe brain injury. Dr. Carlini has always been with me and still is taking me through a long recovery. He has made some tremendous decisions and always explained everything carefully, and I couldnt think at all for some time. Wonderful human being, dont know where I would be now had I not been treated by him. I will always recommend him.
I did not like Walter Carlini. He was a very rude doctor, insinuating all care from previous physicians was bogus. I moved here looking for a new Neurologist and he did not meet my needs whatsoever. Dr. Carlini did not make eye contact during appointment, he belittled me and did not answer one question I had for him. Im still not even sure what happened in that office for them to say he met the needs of the patient. I absolutely would not recommend him to anyone nor would I recommend any Providence facilities to anyone. I have had nothing but problems with every facility Ive gone too.
Dr. Carlini has the most inappropriate bedside manner I have experienced in a physician. Working in the medical field myself I have experienced many. The man does not make eye contact or care to listen to symptoms or medical interventions that I had tried. He lectured me and at the end of the lecture as we are walking out the door he decides to do a nuero exam due to the fact he forgot while we were in the privacy of the office. I found his egotistical attidude more ignorant. I would not recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Carlini saw me for a Spinal Tap to confirm a diagnosis of MS. He had a caring bedside manner during the procedure. When a Spinal Headache occured all phone calls to his office or pager were returned within 10 minutes. and when it was evident I had a Spinal Fluid Leak was he saw to it that I was seen by an anesthesiologist so it could be fixed. He even called me at my home on the weekend to see how I was doing.He is well respected in his field for MS research and my MS doctor at OHSU felt very comfortable having me be followed by Dr. Carlini. He was very helpful with questions and gave precise answers and if he didnt know the answer was able to tell me he didnt know. He was even ok with me asking about alternative complementary medicine regarding MS, and encouraging participation in those realms. I feel very comfortable with him as a practitioner and his thorough exam, and ongoing plan of care.
