Yes, Stan, I often think that going to a neurologist well "after the fact" is questionable but in my case my neurologist is also a bonafide shrink, and since my problem was stress, maybe not such a bad idea. We've had a few "talking sessions" with a demonstration of walking, so it's kind of a mixed bag as well. He is also a wonderful diagnostician so that helps too.

 

And of course a neurology is a specialty so, you are basically going to an advanced general practioner. Of course, he (she) whatever the sex of the neurologist as a "GP originally, doesn't do things like butt checking........heck, you know you've got one. roflmao.gif

i see my neurologist once a year. his office is never crowded and i usually don't wait more than 10-15 min. when i had to leave and reschedule because he had an emergency, he apologized to me the next time i saw him. i see him basically for a checkup and to have somebody to call if there is a problem, like when i had a concussion after a car accident in 9/04. my rheumatologst monitors my Coumadin, and has basically taught me when to order tests (1xmo, more if level not stable), and how to change my Coumadin dose based on my blood test. i do it on my own prescriptions, so the results are faxed to me, and then i give him a copy. i would monitor my Coumadin this way even if i wasn't a doctor.

 

if you're stable, you don't need to be seen by a neurologist more than once a year, unless he's the one who is monitoring your Coumadin, if you're on Coumadin.

 

BTW-i hate doctors who make pts wait for hours. i think that there's a special place in hell for them
