    My Neurologist is Quitiing.

    My neurologist, the only one who has reliably treated my RSD*, is stopping his practice. I'll be getting one more appointment with him before he does so, but this could potentially be really, really bad. We definitely need prayer on this.

    *That is still able to practice. The last one now has alzheimer's.

    Will he be recommending another doctor?

    I'm always still in trouble again

    My brother-in-law is a retired neurologist. The practice of neurology, with its difficult diagnoses and the need to follow patients and their subtle responses to complicated medications, has not fared well in the managed care environment. The American Academy of Neurology has a helpful tool for finding other neurologists in your region:

    Good luck and prayers!

    That's one of the things that bothers me, the doctor he is recommending to others, is, well not a good guy.

    Tell him of your reservations and ask for a list of other doctors including what he thinks their strong and weak points are. Not sure if he'll be willing to do so (maybe more likely now that he's retiring) but it's worth a shot.

    I second rogue's suggestion here.

    It doesn't seem to have done any good. We do have one last appointment before he moves. We'll try to figure something out in the meantime.
