Does anyone out there live in Vancouver BC and know of a GP that has a lot of experience with people with MS and/or spinal chord injuries?

l was in Vancouver when I had my first symptoms and diagnosis. I don't know if my family doc at the time had a lot of experience with MS, but as soon as she saw me, she referred me to the rapid response neurology clinic at UBC, which was absolutely the right thing to do considering how long it normally takes to get an appointment with a specialist in BC. I'll always be grateful to her for that. I don't know if she is taking new patients, but I think this might still be her contact info (I haven't lived in Van since 2004):

haven't been to the Afghan Horseman, but I'd like to try Afghan food. On Broadway, I miss Habibi's (Lebanese).
