Finally, a New Neurologist... And I am Psyched!

“Caroline,” he called.  “Caroline” 

He looked like the photo on his website.  

Wow, the doctor is calling me in for my exam.  

“I’m impressed by your service,” I said. 

“We do things differently,” Dr. Shubin replied. 

And, boy do they!  

Upon entering the office I could see plenty of MS information. I even found myself on their table!  

PBA - an effect from MS & emotional rollercoaster 
It all started with a frustrating doctor visit a couple of months ago.  My neurologist and I did not communicate well.  Feeling intimidated and second-guessed, I started doubting her expertise.  Not a good place to be. Years are gathering and I am getting older. Fears of what might happen with my MS are rising.  I was scared.  

But, not now.  

Just one doctor visit gave me so much confidence. He said there is a place I can go, Casa Colina, that is famous for rehab.  They even have driving machines to help you learn to drive again. Could you imagine?  Being able to just hop on the freeway and go where ever you wanted with out paying for a ride share?  Or bothering friends or family?  Imagine the freedom and independence. I’m tearing up just thinking about it.  

Dr. Shubin covered so much and gave a thorough exam. Despite the years of neurology appointments it’s been way too long since one has given me a proper exam.  Not since my diagnosing neuro retired.  

We talked about life, how MS is working, he made it so easy.  I am still in awe over the experience. I have had doctors tell me they don’t know what’s wrong because I don’t’ “present”.  

We talked about disease modifying treatments and opened the conversation for later discussed.  

Wow.  

About to meet my new Neurologist! 
Just feeling the love from his office.  It was the best experience since I was diagnosed.  The love and care is amazing.  The expertise and knowledge is utmost.  This is quality and I’m feeling even more ready to conquer MS.  

Join me in my battle.  Let’s conquer MS together!
