Here is My Question:
The one neurologist in town that did a lot of tests on me, now refuses to do any follow up appointments. My question is, where can I seek another neurologist when I’m having all the symptoms of MS and it’s debilitating my day to day life?
A physician has a continuing responsibility of care until they discharge you back to your primary care physician (PCP) or you establish care with another specialist in the same field. Please check with your PCP to see if the neurologist sent a final consultation note with recommendations. If the neurologist did not send such a note, your PCP should request that this be done.
