Both the nurse and Dr Dongas took very detailed notes. She asked from the beginning of my symptoms to what I was feeling that day. She listened to what I said and did a exam of my body so I could tell her where the odd feeling started. She explained her thoughts and told me what tests she wanted done and why.

On February 13, I called the Nashville office to report the anxiety that Ted was having, he has Parkinsons. I told her nurse and I actually talked to Dr. Dongas. She prescribed Alprazolam 0.25mg and explained I was to watch closely if he stumbles or fall. None of this has happened. So he has taken 4 1/2 tablets. I appreci
