Patient Comments (1)
Dr. Houser is shockingly insensitive. She doesn't speak to my mother directly. She speaks to me like my mother is deaf or brain dead. My mother is neither. When we come in for a yearly assessment, she says loudly and with a cheerful voice that she can't help, the disease will continue to spread and destroy my mom's ability to speak, swallow, think, and Well, she's had a good run. Horrible. Plus, the Neurology Department never sends a questionnaire seeking feedback.
