      For a Neurology Office the staff has NO CLUE how to interact with a migrainer. Took several months to get an appointment (even on referral from another neurologist) then they miss confirm it and BLAME THE PATIENT!! When asking about what insurance they take, don't believe them. They'll say they take it then tell the patient to contact the insurance provider to verify if in network. Don't waste your time waiting to get into this office, schedule with a different provider!

      When I told her I had AS,and even after explaining to her that it stood for "Anklosyn spondalitis", she still had that deer caught in the headlights "dumbstruck" look in her eyes. Granted, AS is rare, but so is CRPS, RSD etc. My AS ( like 50% of all AS paitient's has neurological implications) complications she should be familiar. Seemingly incapable of "thinking outside a box", it seems her education is not up to date. Probably a good Dr. If you were in a coma.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
