I am new here, but not to MS. It has been in my life in some way for about 30 years now; i.e. friends, neighbors, mother... I have recently been diagnosed myself & had my first injection of Copaxone last night. The nurse teaching me the procedure, discussed with me my issues with finding a neurologist.
After being unable to understand the 1st one I was sent to, I found another one, 2 hours from home. I live in the sticks, so if I need anything BIG, I have to travel to the city. I was not very impressed with this 2nd neurologist, but I thought maybe I was just being "picky" now. My 16-year-old went with me to my appointment & later pointed out that the doc didn't seem very interested in taking on another MS patient. So, it was NOT my imagination!
Anyway, the nurse asked me if I had ever considered going to the MS Center, which is also in the city. It is a group of doctors/neurologists/specialists that only see patients with MS. Unlike other neurologists who see patients with Parkinson's, epilepsy, stroke, etc...
Does anyone have any advice or personal experience with this?
