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.

I hope you never need to see an Neurologist but if you do, I highly recommend Dr. Dongas. She has been an amazing help to us as we have been taking care of a mom with Alzheimer's.

Ted Ingram's initial appointment was February 1. She saw us in Dickson. She spent considerable time with us, which I (Judy) really appreciated. We will see her in six months.

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
