I started going to a neuro doctor several years ago, who was 'suppose' to the best neuro doctor around, she was suppose to be specialized in neuro disorders and pain, but she does NOT do pain period, so why she has it under her name everywhere is beyond me, she finally removed it this last year as I guess too many people where expect pain releif from her when she doesnt provide that. When I first saw her, she was very cold, didnt really do anything physical (I was seeing her for my migraines)and asked just very few questions, she then ordered that weird thing where they have you sit on a recliner with thousand things stuck to your head and they flash lights on each side in weird patterns. Now I only see her every 6 months to just follow up with meds, she prescribes me imitrex and lyrica, and I asked her for ibprofen 800mg and she acted like I was asking for some narcotic, she wanted to give me the lowest dose, but the pharmacy finally convinced her to give me the 800mg ones. I know several people that have gone to her that wernt too happy with her. But of course I cant switch doctors cause it's impossible to find any doctor within town that takes my insurance and I already see a doctor out of town and I hate driving long distances. So i just learn to live with it, but luckly my migraines have almost disappeared with the meds I'm on now so it's no big deal now.
