Hate to say it, but my 35+ years experience with neurologists is that most are socially retarded. Bedside manner is not part of their training. They get their jollies from the "thrill of the hunt" (ie, trying to make the diagnosis) but not in treatment, and most know little or nothing about rehabilitation or disability management. They loose interest in you very quickly once the diagnosis is made.

When my mother was diagnosed with PPMS at age 53, the neurologist she had at the time told her there was no need to see her any more, and nothing more that could be done for her. Didn't even refer her for PT for the drop foot she had already developed with he dicked around for 12 months making his diagnosis. We fired his butt.

My apologies to any good neurologists who read this, but that has been my experience.
