Funny enough, one of my patients a week ago was a rheumatologist who happened to have been treated for multifocal motor neuropathy, successfully so with IVig. He gave me a referral to a guy that Dx him in 10 minutes on the first visit, he’s double boarded in electrodiagnostics and neuromuscular disorders. Some of the patients he talked to in the infusion clinic took up to 7 years for a proper Dx according to him. A nurse infusionist I had as a patient not long ago said the same thing on the time to Dx. Sad.
