I've been thinking on this matter VERY clearly and I don't think it is worth paying out-of-network fees to see her anymore. I saw her because initially she worked with me putting me on medicines that I was comfortable taking. When I told her that I went through a life threatening experience because of a side effect of a new medicine she said "you don't need to go through that again." She only put me on things like Tegretol.
Now that my seizures are under such good control – it's been 4 months since I've had a seizure. if I see another doctor he/she in all likelihood would just increase the Zonisamide and not add a different medicine. At least that is my reasoning. I'd see an in-network doctor, I've already looked up some. The best doctor is not always the best. The older ones do not necessarily have the best knowledge either.
Today the neurologist's office called to schedule me for a follow-up appointment. I had cancellated my appointment with her. I told her assistant no more follow-up appointments for me. I have found another doctor. Dr. H. has become overcontrolling with the VNS but it has been a please to meet her and you may tell her that. The assistant said she would do so. Appropriate or not?
I had enough poo!
