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 that she recognizes. This is not acceptable and she has no answers for the symptoms. I'm concerned and now faced with seeking another doctor. ? Hm.
