Needing a new Neurologist

  • By Bdepue

    Hi! I was diagnosed in 2001with RRMS. However, I have been declining the last 3 yrs, severely the last 6months. I had 6 new lessions within 12 months and was diagnosed with mild-moderate neurocognitive disorder secondary to ms. I seen my neurologist on Tuesday for him to be in the room for 2mins 55 seconds! I have so many questions and concerns and feel very rushed when I see him. Therefore I feel it’s time for a new neurologist. Can you give me some tips on what to look for / screen when making a commitment with a new dr so I’m not in the same situation as I am now? Please and thank you.
