Thanks so much for inquiring, Lori. I hope you are still doing better. I’m fine, physically. I’m just extremely discouraged and annoyed. Before this, I never had bad experiences with finding doctors that listened to me, stayed in my corner. And came up with a game plan that we both could agreed with. The PA said that their clinic’s first step is always to rule out MS so the 3 MRIs are “medically necessary.” The scans would take more than two hours so I would need to book them over two appointments (and the two appointments are over a 4 week period). Also, When asked what the next step would be if my MRIs were clean, I was told, “Let’s just cross that bridge when we get to it.” Something about this didn’t sit well with me. And this clinic has their own MRI machines so a small part of me thinks they may be more motivated by money than patient care. And I don’t want to be just a number to someone treating me. Sorry for the rant. I will put my big girl pants on and keep searching.

kiro0001 Hi Kia, I really would go to other doc if I were you. What you are going through just does not seem right, and I agree that it may be motivated by making money. Horrible. Find another doctor, for sure. Keep us all informed. Lori
