MDS - yes or no

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed in 2013.  At that time my family physician recommended I see a neurologist who came to my home town on a weekly basis.  He is not a MDS but nevertheless was highly recommended.  It was a 25 mile one way trip.  I am currently experiencing some problems with medication.  When I called the doctor's office they told be he no longer travels and I would have to see him at his office about 60 miles from my home.  I like the doctor OK but am not particularly enthralled.  About 85 miles from home is a PD Center of Excellence that has about 4 MDS on staff.  What has been the experience of folks on this forum?  Is it really worth it to see a MDS or should I just save myself the time and effort and make an appointment with the neurologist who is nearest even though he is not a MDS?  Would appreciated some input.  Thanks!

15 miles difference? See the MDS. My neurologist is about 40 minutes away and is not an MDS, but the closest University center with an MDS is about 4 hours away.

Thanks for the input.  I think I knew the answer but just needed some validation and confirmation.  Thanks!
