I thought by seeing a "female Neurologist" in my own "age range" she would be more comfortable to see, and, she would be most helpful. I was shocked ( and had a friend with me, as a "witness"! ). This Dr. Was both "sarcastic" and actually criticized me, RIGHT in FRONT of me -- as if I wasn't there! She made a comment about my hair style and was cruel!! Do NOT see this Dr.!
