Excellent dr. Dr. Jaradeh is very charming & caring. Enjoy a lot every time I meet him. He has helped a lot. I thank him -
Dr. Jaradeh is probably the most knowledge doctor I have ever met.
Dr. Jaradeh is very knowledgeable and was wonderful during my visit. However, he did not respond to my questions after my visit, nor did I receive any indication of what I should expect after my visit, and the report he sent to my provider three weeks after my visit did not include an evaluation of my tests and gave basically repeated my symptoms. I am left with no follow up plan.
Dr. Jaradeh is a excellent neurologist in our first meeting, it was able to connect with me, get all my family history, can be trusted because he trust.
Dr.Jaradeh is great. He has helped me a lot.
I really don't know what the "plan" is going forward. He mentioned MRI of brain & spine, but I haven't heard anything about that. I'm not sure about my diagnosis which I discovered on MyHealth. Would have been better to hear from doctor because I don't have a clue what to do.
Dr. Jaradeh is amazing. He is knowledgeable and has an excellent bedside manner. I am grateful for him!
Seen Dr previously as usual with student (resident dr?) and PA. This time they spoke among themselves and I had to interrup a few times to be included. At one point the Dr. mentioned that they were talking among themselves and I had to bring up the fact that I needed to know what was going on as I was the patient. Dr.asked me if I would take a medication giving me the generic name which I did not know. I trusted him and said yes. Told me if one pill didn't work to take two. I still don't know if at the same time or different times. After picking Rx up from pharmacy I realized I would have asked lots more questions regarding this med. All this said I do trust this doctor and his care. I don't like the idea I will be seeing his PA in 6 mos and him in another 6 mos (or once a yr). I feel my condition has changed and I will be seeing my local neurologist in the mean time but it has me feeling uneasy.
Outstanding, compassionate, and thorough.
Dr. Jaradeh is a wonderful doctor and a very compassionate man. He is cautious and thoughtful in his assessments. His respect for others is obvious.
Dr. Jaradeh is absolutely amazing.
Felt like a specimen. Excellent dr. but testing was a bit overwhelming.
Dr. Jaradeh is an excellent physician. He actively listens to your questions, answers them completely in language that is understandable and has empathy for the patient and what he or she is going through.
Dr. Jaradeh was excellent communicator, kind, respectful & EXTREMELY knowledgeable about my medical issues.
Dr. Jaradeh is THE BEST!
It is clear that Dr. Jaradeh is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent diagnostician. He is also very personable and interesting. He did a very thorough review of my chart, which is much appreciated. However, he did not read my intake paperwork, which I did not realize until halfway through the appointment, and I couldn't seem to get his attention to the primary concern for which I had made the appointment. I'm still not sure if this concern has been evaluated. Other useful things were discussed. Tests were ordered. However, I am unclear if there will be follow up or treatment for the items we did discuss.
Willing to have highly technical discussions.
He explained things very well; I'm an RN so he spoke with me in terms that were very helpful to me with my medical knowledge.
he's very smart / experienced
The doctor does not speak down to me the way some do, and he talks to me about the treatment alternatives so that I can also make informed decisions and understand my treatment. He also does not order unnecessary tests.
Excellent doctor was very pleased with consult.
I love Dr. Jaradeh. He has such a beautiful spirit. He explains my health situation to where I can understand.
I was very impressed with Dr. Jaradeh, still waiting for tests ordered to be forwarded & authorized so I can have them done.
This doctor is the best! He saved my life. He stays in full contact. His PA is fantastic!
We arrived on time for the appt, and were seen in 10 minutes. Dr. Jaradeh spent ample time going over my history & current condition. Moreover, Dr. Jaradeh and technician (Lori) were excellent at answering questions about my condition, and related test results.
Everyone was very helpful & very personable, listened well. Dr. Jaradeh is great & his nurse Cynthia is very good as well.
Dr. Jaradeh is very compassionate, puts one at ease, listens attentively and I feel as though he gave me my life back.
I was unclear about my medication until letter to my primary care doctor appeared on MyHealth.
Dr. Jaradeh is the best! He always looks at the record to check what all the other doctors are doing as my case is very complicated. I wish I could find a primary care doctor who is as good as Dr. Jaradeh!
Great doctor! Positive asset for SHC.
Stanford is such a great place, I LOVE it.
Dr. Jaradeh is by far the most informed smart, thorough and kind doctor I have met as I have tried to work out my medical issues. He is amazing!
Dr. Jaradeh took the time to explain everything & is one of the few providers who was able to piece my difficult case together. Highly recommended.
All good, he was down to earth and spoke so we could understand.
1st visit, but very encouraging.
