Dr. Murinova makes me feel like I am important and she will take all the time I need. I am extremely lucky to have the attention of such an experienced, knowledgeable, ethical and caring specialist
The doctor is far beyond superb. I've been trying to deal with these issues for decades. Finally somebody who not only understands but who "sees" me and hears me. She's one of the best doctors I've ever seen and in the quest to address these issues, I've seen a LOT of doctors, but none as smart, none as informed, none as open to seeing the whole picture.

Dr Murinova is EXCELLENT!
Dr. Murinova is an excellent neurologist. I would recommend her to anyone close to me who would need her expertise. She is an asset to UW.
I would have preferred to have a discussion with the provider about my symptoms rather than sitting through a generic lecture on migraines and medications.
High praise to Dr. Natalia Murinova. My only regret is that we couldn't keep talking about the world outside my treatment! She listened to everything I said, didn't doubt my lived experience, and was empathetic and engaged at every moment. [...], was also a joy to speak with. Id recommend anyone be served by the amazing people at the clinic.
