Having multiple sclerosis (MS), what kind of doctor should I have?

Louis Rosner
Neurology
One of the most important relationships, yet one of the least cultivated, is that between the patient and doctor. Until a cure for multiple sclerosis (MS) is found, this is a relationship that is going to last a long time - so it had better be a good one. It is very important for you to have a doctor who gives you confidence and hope. The doctor who tells you "there is nothing we can do" or that disability is inevitable, is, frankly, a loser. Find another doctor. Don't ever be afraid to change neurologists.
