I have had the same Neuro for 10 years and just recently he moved away so I was referred to a new MS Neuro. I met him just this week and I have to say I am very impressed. He was awarded the Sylvia Lawry Fellowship (2008-2010, National MS Society). I didn't feel rushed and he was very thorough in his exam.
In fact he started to ask me questions that prompted me to think. He looked at my online chart and noticed that I have had 5 UTI's this past year and after talking about it a bit he suggested that I see a urologist that specializes in MS.
I liked my other Neuro, but I think I like my new one even more. Sometimes change can be a good thing.
I feel I am hanging in the ether. I am thinking of dropping a Neurologist all together. For me it is a big waste of time and money. The only problem is as my MS progresses I am going to need a MS Specialist and we have so few. I always get fifteen minutes tops with the Doctor. I went 44 years with MS years with out a Neurologist may be I do not need one. I am not on a DMD so what is the point.
I love my neuro. She usually spends 45 minutes to over an hour with me. She never rushes and asks lots of questions, she truly cares. She even came in just for me once on her day off for a follow up appt after a relapse I had. I feel fortunate to have such a wonderful ms neuro.
