Both my neuro and regular doctor see me once a year. The doctor insists on an annual physical and the neuro is just a standard neuro check-in, nothing special.

my doc tries to set me an ppointment every 3 months and I am on copaxone and that's all. Nonsense! I hold off.

Most of us have a million dollar lifetime limit of spending from insurance, believe it or not it adds up. Copaxone x 13 years x12 x 20k=way too much I'm sure half of my lifetime limit is gone, and I've only had MS for 18 years and will likely live another 40 years. IT is a scary thought.

No reason to have people vsit with me for no good purpose!

My new doctor at USF wants to see me every three months, with MRI's in hand. He already gave me post dated MRI scripts.
