The human brain is a confusing place. It’s filled with things like dendrites, axons, nodes, myelin sheaths, synapses, glia, and our personal favorite, the medulla oblongata—because it’s fun to say. So if you’re having some trouble in that region, you want someone who knows a Schwann isn’t a small bike, Floyd Bloom isn’t a spring perennial and Golgi isn’t a type of pasta. Well, we’ve got your man. Because, we don’t know if you’ve heard this, but people don’t really love going to doctors. So to be voted Best Neurologist on Long Island, that’s a feat to be proud of. And Dr. Itzhak Haimovic did just that—three years in a row.
