Jennifer is the best. she is compassionate about what she does and the children. she is extremely knowledgable and helpful . she always goes above and beyond her job description ! you are truly lucky to have her working for you !!
Jennifer has always been very professional, kind and understanding. We appreciate all she has helped us through.
the provider knows our daughter health issues and help out very much.
We felt that she understood what we were concerned about without explaining. She could finish our sentences and voiced our concerns that we have tried voicing with other doctors.
In addition to being knowledgeable about the field of neurology, Jennifer has useful information about related issues that arise with complicated children such as ours. This is quite helpful.
Very thorough and concise.
takes too long for an appt.
Jennifer Desario is amazing and a true asset to your company . She is extremely knowledgable and compassionate about her job. she goes above and beyond every time we are there , which usually every 4 months . My daughter sees several specialists at CHP and Jennifer is definitely our favorite . She goes beyond just my daughter . She is concerned about our family as well always asking if we as a family need help with anything . She is a true blessing !
Personable and easy to talk to
I have been with Jennifer for years. I perfer to see her over the neurologists. She always takes the time to explain everything to my children and I. I hope jen realizes what a difference she makes in these children's lives. As a registered nurse. my standards are very high Jen surpasses them all!
I hope Jennifer Diserio understands the difference she makes in the lives of the children she treats. I have been with Jen for years because my 15yr old daughter has epilepsy also. Little over a yr ago I took my son to his pcp to ask for an EEG, I explained to our previous pcp that l thought my son had epilepsy. I was told that his symptoms were not typical of epilepsy, and if I felt that strongly in the matter to call my daughters neurologists. My daughter happened to have a check up with Jen the following week. I explained my concerns and she said yes lets get an EEG. This was a Friday my son was scheduled for the EEG Tuesday! When Tuesday came my son was so scared. Jen saw us in the waiting room and came over to him and told him don't be afraid the test will not hurt, and she had been friends with his big sister for years. This made my son feel so much better. When the EEG came back showing positive for a form of epilepsy, she squeezed us in, and explained everything that was shown on the EEG. This means the world to me! I hope she knows how she has dramatically changed the lives of my family! I know there is a lot of pressure on practitioners, and they usually only hear the bad. This is why I wanted to write this in hope Jen and the entire staff in Wexford know they are appreciated!
Jenn is a great doctor and she is very caring and helpful with whatever u need. And she is very good with your child and very patient.and she is very understanding about situation you or your child may be going through.
This is one of the best visits we have had in our years at neurology.
Jennifer was very knowledgeable and offered great advice. She took the time to listen to our concerns and gave us great recommendations.
They were beyond words amazing with my autistic son
alwys eccellent care
Jen Desario and her staff were great!!! I can't tell you how much I appreciate her taking the time to listen and answer all of my questions. She drew the blood right there in the office, and showed so much compassion and concern for my daughter. My daughter is very difficult when it comes to drawing blood and she and the staff were so patient and kind! Can't thank them enough!!
Great Service from the time we walked in until the time we left. Keep up the good work!!
It was one of the best, did not wait long, & she talked to both of us. She cares for my son and it shows she wants what is best for him now & in the future.
Jennifer Diserio provided excellent care and gave me valuable extra attention regarding transitioning to college with my condition.
We were very pleased with Ms. Disario!! She carefully and compassionately went over every question and concern we had for our son. She also gave us important information and explained to us about medicine that could interfere with his current condition. This has never been done for us by our pediatrician, epilotologist, or pharmacist. We left feeling relieved and grateful for her thorough examination and the fact that she took the time to hear our concerns. There was never a single moment when we felt rushed or like a number.
She was very helpful and very kind and caring. Her focus was on our child the whole time.
Jennifer was absolutely wonderful. we feel the best we have ever felt about our son's condition.
we absolutely love her!
