Honest Talk with MD: I am a neurologist, so this is what i would want you to do if you were my patient. Make an appointment and tell me what in our interaction bothers you, and how i can fix it. Which of your symptoms are impacting you the most? I'll see what i can do to help you. My plan may be limited due to your disease/insurance. If you didn't like my response to the interaction question, find a new neurologist.
