I spent a decade assigned to a Kaiser doctor in neurology offering no treatment, advice, diagnosis for my ataxia. I got a referral to see Dr, Doster. Yes, I had to beg. She is very smart, she takes action and follows up on my progress.

Dr. Doster has the worst bedside manner of all time. She is cold, detached, and honestly forgetful. I have now met her three times and she does not remember me at all. She also is quite behind on the latest news about MS and treatments, and is quick to dismiss what she does not know. Do not see this doctor if you are in need of a helping hand because she will not give one.
