I have been asked by my MS nurse to switch neurologist to the MS specialist. I am not sure I want to though and need some advice. The neuro I am seen by is a general neurologist, really helpful, kind and gave me my dx and has perscribed my dmd’s. The other neuro (ms specialist) is based at the other hospital (same trust) and runs a relapse clinic, so i guess that means more help avaliable, although i wouldn’t be able to get there on my own anyway and my nurse always comes to see me - so not sure of the need for such a clinic?. I have heard several bad things about the specialist by other msers, so not keen to give myself up to him and have been let down badly by a third neuro in the past.
Apart from the relapse clinic i don’t see what else there is to gain from switching, he is happy to see me and has started me on my dmd’s - maybe it’s less work for my nurse. Nurse did say it’s my choice, but feeling a bit bullied into making a decision. What would you guys do? Thanks in advance.
