I have been seeing Dr Eilender for my MS for over 10 years. After going through many neurologists I finally found the right fit for me. I feel he listens, he offers for me to try new things but understands when they fail. With this disease there is no one correct treatment for any one individual. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait due to the complications of the patients, but if you bring a book or something to do, time will pass quick enough.
