I'm left with a lot of, "This isn't...." and no, "This is..." and a suggestion of a second opinion. Very nice woman, will spend time with you, but I don't have a lot of confidence in where I'm at and I feel like she feels it is acceptable to not have an answer and be faced with neurologic symptoms...more
