I'm new here!

β€’12 Replies

Still feel kinda new to this MS world even though I was DX Dec 2015, I'm on my 3rd neurologist. This time because of insurance change, but this one has treated family members for awhile, not for MS but for other things, so I'm comfortable with him. Anyway I was summoned to his office Friday, he was concerned about a blood test I'd had but instead of just jumping to conclusions he made time to see me and talk it over with me and my husband. I think he's a keeper!

Good Morning CandyR finding a 'keeper' is awesome! Especially on this roller coaster ride.

I hope your blood test turned out alright?

Jump in anywhere! πŸ€—πŸ’•


I think a lot of us have been through the neuro. journey.Glad you found a doc. If you like let us share in your bloodwork journey.

A DEFINITE keeper CandyR Welcome to the group, so glad you found us, sorry for the reason. Good Neuros are hard to find and it sounds like you have a great one ;)

Look forward to getting to know you more,


Hey CandyR,

Wecome to HealthUnlocked! This a great forum to share anything or everything related to ms. So many here can probably relate.

As for finding a good neuro ~ I agree with you. It is extremely important to find a neuro that you can communicate with because while there are many excellent neuros out there, not all will be the one who makes you comfortable.

I am on my 2nd neuro and have been with her for 12+ year. She's is definitely a keeper!

Keep smiling,


I'm on my 4 th neuro and still can't find one I am happy with!

Welcome to one of the best sites on line. We are here to trade ideas,

vent and share good news. He sounds like someone you want to work with.


I am also on my 3rd neurologist 1 closed down and the second never listened to what I had to say or for that matter any of my family had to say. I'm optimistic about the new office it is associated with my Pcp and I really like the hospital that they all work for. I was scared in July of 2014 and feel like this is relatively new to me also.

Welcome to the group. I'm on my 4th neurologist. The first specialized in MS. But she was an Italian doctor (I was stationed in Italy at the time) and she had an accent that I wasn't accustomed too and had a very hard time understanding anything she said. The second I only saw once because he was getting ready to transfer back to the United States and and his replacement specialized in brain traumas. I think I taught her more about MS in the beginning but she got smart on MS fairly quickly. Then I transferred back to the United States and have a new neurologist who specializes in MS. What a difference it makes. He's been great so far.

Good luck to you with your new neurologist.


That's great! I have seen one other before my current dr and I think the personal touch is important. Hope you have this great relationship for many more years :D
