I went to a neurologiy clinic in August It was a three hour drive, It was a three hour drive. I had to hire a driver, rent motel rooms,by the time it was over it cost me $600. I was used as a training tool. First run through a bunch of tests by an intern and then the big ego Dr. comes in and does all the tests again while talking around me to the intern. I wasn't there, I didn't exist. They had me keep a daily journal entering time dosage, medicine working or not every 1/2 hour for a week. I sent the info in and they told me I didn't know whether the medicine was working or not. Well, I do know when I'm off or on (their wording for whether or not I had enough dopamine production.) That's why I went to this clinic. If anyone would know it would be me! I thought that I was having a bad day and that I'd get over it but when they called me reminding me of my appointment on Fri., I cancelled itknowing I this is the only PD clinic in the state. when asked why? I told them ,"the distance" and "I didn't like the Dr.". Has anyone been through this? Why did this Dr. treat me like I couldn't know whether the medicine wasn't working, I've spent more time with this disease than she's spent in medical school!
