Hi @amber3212, You'll notice that I moved your message to this earlier discussion that you started. I did this so that you can continue to connect with members who know your background and how you're seeking help for your mom.
You asked about a specific physician, Dr. Miloni, with whom your mom has an appointment and you're nervous because online ratings appear to not be favorable. That would set me on my guard a little too. But I would also caution about the validity of online reviews. Studies have shown that they are flawed. Here are some interesting articles:

Amber, will you be accompanying your mother to Mayo Clinic? How might members of this group, familiar with FND, help you prepare for the consultation? Have you started making a list of questions and assembled all her medical history and past tests, etc.?
