I have tried numerous neurologists in the Birmingham area and have had no luck, none of them seem to want to help me. I even went to a so called "headache specialist" who I had to book an appointment with 6 months out. He spent about 5 minutes with me, and then kept pushing back my follow-up appointment. Needless to say, a doctor who I can only see once a year is useless to me when I have headaches daily!
In my search, I have found three doctors who have been extremely helpful and I would highly recommend:

So, I hope someone who is looking for a good Allergist, ENT, or pulmonologist will get some benefit from this post. I also hope that there is someone out there who can recommend a good doctor for me in the Birmingham area. Also, I don't mind driving if the doc you recommend is further away in fact, I am setting up an appointment to try a doc in Tuscaloosa currently.
