Dr. Thrower took the time to explain my condition. He answered every question I could think of and them some. The initial appointment included 40 min of Dr. Thrower sitting and talking with me about what it means to have multiple sclerosis.

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!
