The man is amazing, as an MS-specialist/Neurologist and as a person. He Listens to his patients. MS is incurable & challenging. His empathy and compassion are a part of treatment; he will "go with the flow" to tweak existing treatments as appropriate; he listens to his patients' opinions. I am fortunate to NOT see him very often, with a more benign (although disabling) form of M.S. But I HAVE seen him for well over 10 years so take my word: If you seek an MS specialist (Atlanta area) go here!
