Montgomery, AL |
In my first 30 minutes with Dr. Salazar he announced an opinion that conflicted with 20 years of diagnosis then sent me away for 2 months. Upon my next visit he, again, said the previous diagnosis was wrong and that he couldn't help me. When a conclusive procedure confirming the original diagnosis was referenced, he became defensive and indicated that we should have told him--it was in my file. He was right about one thing--he can't help me, I will never go back.
I regret to hear that you suffer from a chronic neurological disorder for which other physicians haven't been able to provide much assistance. I always spend great amount of time with my patients (30-45 min) and don't take prior diagnosis for granted. Whenever I encounter a conflicting diagnosis, I recomend a sooner follow up appointment (6-8 weeks). I apologize if I couldn't be of much assistance. I sincerely hope your health gets better.
