Dr Pace observes. It can be a bit unnerving until you figure out what he is doing. But he is an excellent observer!

Dec 01, 2023

Absolutely!! I would recommend this clinic and already have

Nov 28, 2023

Dr. Pace is always great at listening, providing concern and explaining to me why or how I am getting my migraines. Love visiting him.

Nov 15, 2023

Dr. Pace is fantastic. I see a lot of doctors but Dr Pace is my favorite

Oct 27, 2023

Dr. Pace is the most pleasant, kind, caring and knowledgeable neurologist who I have ever seen - and I have been a patient of many! He intently listens to me and I can see him pondering what I said. His warm personality REALLY showed when - after his initial "fist bump" - he immediately turned his attention to my husband who had chemo for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma! He was SO encouraging about his outcome. Dr. Pace has even had his nurse Inquire about my husband via the Portal. Physicians like him are, sadly, difficult to find. He seems to be extremely knowledgeable about MS and is up-to-date about new and upcoming therapies. I was originally referred to him by a neurologist in Midland, as I had questions about Ocrevus. I learned from Dr. Pace that I had been on Tysabri for too long (7 years) and that it would not do anything for my Secondary Progressive MS. I was later shocked that this physician had later started to work at the Neurological Institute in Owosso. IMHO, he "talked the talk - but did not walk the walk"! I cannot imagine a better neurologist than Dr. Pace and am so grateful that he is my neurologist!

Oct 06, 2023

Dr. Pace is a delight: friendly, knowledgeable and very professional.

Oct 06, 2023

I appreciated that Dr. Pace took the time to talk with me, listen to my questions/concerns, and responded accordingly. I was glad that he did not hurry through my visit to try to catch up. I felt our talk was good, he answered my questions, he provided options in treatment and we discussed those options. Overall, that part of the visit was good.

Sep 25, 2023

Questions answered and update on MS research very good

Sep 23, 2023

Apr 21, 2023

This is only my second time seeing Dr. Pace so we are still getting to know each other. I felt he took the time to listen and he was with me for 40 minutes, which I appreciated him taking the time. I had a change in my health and we needed to talk. I am glad he gave me that time. I can't say I fully understand the changes we talked about but at least we got he conversation started. Dr. Pace tried to explain things but I am not sure I always understood. We will talk more in the fall, I will make sure.

Every time I have seen Dr. Pace he is very caring and sits and talks to me as if I was a family member he was caring for. I appreciate that and it in unusual for a Dr. In this field to be so kind.

Apr 14, 2023

I greatly appreciate Dr. Pace. He is never condescending, there is no God complex, he explains things very well, he answers all my questions, he's very thorough, I feel listened to and heard. I feel like I'm in very good hands and he leaves no stone unturned. I appreciate that if he's ever late he apologizes but he also takes however much time is needed with me. Therefore I have no problem waiting if he is waiting if he is late because that means he's giving someone else exactly what they need also.

Apr 08, 2023

Dr. Pace is very thoughtful, understandingand takes as much time as necessary at visits and other times to listen and explain whatever Is asked and helps to personalize every visits and care decisions. We drive 2 hours to see him as my neurologist. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Pace to anyone

Jun 11, 2021

I've recommended Dr. Pace to several people.

Jun 02, 2021

I felt the talk and examination with Doctor Pace was too quick and seemed my condition was almost ignored just to get me out the door. Doctor checked my knee and foot reflex asked a few questions and visit was done. I think it was under 15 minutes. Dr. Pace told me it wasn't a neuro issue without explaining why. I tried to ask more questions to understand but got a quick explanation. The visit is not able to give me anything concrete to conclude that it was informative and productive.

May 26, 2021

Dec 02, 2020

Dr. Pace is always very calm and "cool" whenever I see him - virtually or in person. The longer that I have been going to him, he seems to "open up" and be relaxed and comfortable. He is always very considerate and courteous. He listens to my concerns and provides thoughtful feedback.

Nov 06, 2020

Dr Pace is very easy to talk to and you know he is listening and what is best for youOne of the very best neurologists I have seen in the last 23 years because he seems very knowledgeable but so human also (and those two things don't always go hand in hand) Very relieved to have found him I had given up on seeing neurologists since 2016

He always takes all the time I need, never makes me feel rushed and really LISTENS to me
