Having attended the neurology department yesterday I was shocked by the treatment I received. I didn't see the Dr I was expecting and the Dr I did see was arrogant and not interested in really helping me. He spent most of my appointment time trying to convince me I didn't have arthritis which I have been treated for over the last 6 years because in his opinion 'he hasn't seen anyone with it for years'. This was not only a condition outside his area but also didn't help address the reason I was actually there. The only positive to come out of this appointment was that I was able to persuade him to sent me for an MRI. I will be requesting to see a different Dr for the follow up appointment.
