Referred for consultation by PCP, he was highly recommended. I was on a stable condition for at least 5 years and the medication I was on was very satisfactory to me and it was prescribed by the previous MD a top notch neurologist. He arbitrarily changed to different medication belonged to different class of disease and it brought havoc to my life within 3 days, I begged, he will not change, finally told him, he made mistake, so he discharged me for no patient-doctor relatiship exists. He is 35!
