I'm a patient of Dr. Sadiq. He is indeed a terrific doctor, who takes a very aggressive approach to treating multiple sclerosis. His clinic is a full-service affair, and includes physical therapists, social workers, a naturopath, and a staff of top-notch nurses and nurse practitioners.
Dr. Sadiq's facility also includes a world-class research lab, staffed by some brilliant individuals who, under the direction of Dr. Sadiq, are hard at work looking for ways to cure this damned disease. Their research includes work with stem cells, cerebral spinal fluid analysis, the Epstein-Barr Virus link to MS, and the hormonal connection to multiple sclerosis.
As I said, Dr. Sadiq takes a very aggressive approach in treating his patients. He uses the full arsenal of weapons at his disposal, including the use of intrathecal methotrexate, with which he has had considerable success. The other neurologists working out of his clinic are also quite accomplished, and as a group, they are incredibly compassionate and patient oriented.
Dr. Sadiq takes a real interest in each of his patients, and a typical office visit with him is likely to last a full hour or more, during which the patient receives Dr. Sadiq's complete and undivided attention. His office is very responsive, and phone calls are always returned by a very well informed staff member. His physical therapists and social workers have been instrumental in my getting long-term disability and a power wheelchair.
Unfortunately, I am a very hard to treat patient with atypical PPMS. Dr. Sadiq has continually thought "outside the box" in dealing with my case, and we've tried many conventional and unconventional therapies. I'm not sure that a typical neurologist would be as diligent.
