Has anyone been to him? I am looking for a good neurologist and I want to go to someone that speaks English, that I can understand. I have taken my mom to one and we could hardly understand him. I don't know anything about Dr. Burke, hoping someone else does. Thanks

Dr. Zhu is excellent. He speaks English very well. I don't know anything about Dr. Burke, but I would highly recommend Dr. Zhu.

It is a mystery why people have the opinion that there aren't any decent doctors in BG, because there are some of the finest medical professionals in the region right there! Sure, there are some quacks in BG, but Nashville and Louisville has them too!

I had to go see Dr. Burke late last year after having a mini-stroke and was very pleased with him. Although I only had one visit with him, I felt like he did a very good job. He sat and listened to everything I had to say, which is not always the norm with doctors. He also took the time to explain things to me and address my concerns.

thanks, I am nervous. Don't know what I am facing but it makes it so hard when you can't understand someone with a heavy accent. I know he is fairly new to the area and haven't heard anything about him. Thanks for you input.

that's what I think. He's the one that my mom went to and we couldn't understand a thing and then he wouldn't talk up loud enough so we couldn't hear him either

My sister went to Zhu after being diagnosed with charcot marie,by her MD, Zhu told her she didn't have it & had her do DNA and EMG all over again and after she was in debt up to her ears he was like yea you do have it and now she see Dr. Zia whom she is pleased with. Myself I see Dr.Strickland at the Baptist Hospital he is a awesome Neuro.

Doctors are not Gods and they don't have a crystal ball. It is awful that medical testing is so expensive and is often a hardship, but just because your sister ended up with an expensive medical bill doesn't mean Dr. Zhu isn't a good doctor. Dr. Zhu is my doctor and I have been very pleased with my experience. He was very patient and compassionate with me and I believe he was very thorough with the testing I underwent. As for Dr. Zia, my dad had a bad experience with him and that is why I did not go to him. So I guess we have both had bad experiences with doctors that others had positive experiences with. It doesn't mean that either doctor is bad, because they both have an excellent reputation.

Neurological conditions are very hard to diagnose from what I have learned. One neurologist said that many neurological conditions "hide" for many years, but a neurological condition cannot hide forever. It takes time for some conditions to reveal enough symptoms to be properly diagnosed. By the time you see one doctor and then go to another specialist there could have been a big enough time lapse for another symptom to come to light, thus leading to a diagnosis.

I am not trying to act like a know it all, but I have been dealing with a condition for many years and through my trials I have picked up a basic understanding that you can't always walk into a doctor's office and come out with a concrete diagnosis.

That being said, best of luck to the person that started this topic and my best advice is to NOT give up. The road to getting to the bottom of a neurological condition can be very frustrating and it could test you to your core. And you certainly may have to see more than one doctor to get to the bottom of it. I am sure my count is up to over a dozen doctors by now, but also several years had gone by since my first doctor, and I don't think badly of any of the doctors from the past that weren't able to diagnose me properly. Because as I said, some of these conditions can take years to reveal enough symptoms to "piece the medical mystery puzzle" together properly. So stay strong and diligent and best of luck to you no matter what doctor you choose.

Don't know what your ramp is over but if you re-read what I wrote it never stated Dr.Zhu as a bad Dr.. I however stated a bad experience my sister had. Yes Medical testing is very expensive and my sister already having her DNA, EMG already done and confirming her condition, and when she moved to BG and started seeing Dr. Zhu he insisted it had to be wrong so he had the same tests done over, which came out the same result, and out of her pocket. So before you start jumping in and defending something that was not needed, you may won't to re-read the post first! Like I said before, I never said he was a bad NEURO just maybe a more costly one on OUR end!
