I spent two years in limbo going back and forth to appointments to see a neuro who had a good personality but could not find the reason for my problem. I was so frustrated!!! I was finally referred to my current neuro who was very aggressive in finding the cause and diagnosing me quickly. It really pays to get another opinion. During the two years seeing the first neuro I thought that I was going crazy, but when I was finally diagnosed by the second one I felt validated and thankful.

My thoughts are with you.

I came to the conclusion years ago that to be a neurologist, one must be extremely arrogant, have no bedside manner, have absolutely no personality & be a poor listener. This goes back to my experiences back in 2002 & 2003 in 4 different hospitals. I spent 3 whole months down in Rochester, MN at Mayo & was visited every morning by a team of about 5 neuros, total doorknobs. If I had the time I would give numerous examples, but if one finds a good one they are a treasure. I was so grateful when I finally ended up with Dr. Parry at the UofM in Mpls. I haven’t had to see him now in 5 years, but what a kind & compassionate man, but what a gem.
