How Do You Rate The Quality Of Care From Your Neurologist Or Epileptologist (1 - 10, With 1 Being GREAT And 10 Being HORRIBLE)?

I ask this question because I honestly do not know where I would rate my neurologist. I am not holding it against him that I have not seen him since December 2019 because I he was preparing to get me scheduled to to to the Tufts Medical Seizure Center in March of 2020 when access was shutdown because of the pandemic.

I rate mine as excellent. He is the first and only one who has been able to get my seizures under control since 2009. The last time I met him in person was 2015 if I remember correctly. We thoroughly went over my latest MRI and he showed me the scar tissue on my frontal lobe that is likely the cause, he was also a major factor in getting me on disability. Now I have a yearly check-up with the NP in his office, the last one was over the phone because of covid. My meds are always current and if I ever need to speak to anyone it's only a matter of making a phone call. It wasn't always this way for me, it took many years to get here.

My neurologist is great, especially if I have more then 3 seizures. I can ring the office & have an appointment within a week & I will be doing this on Monday!

When I answered with my message further up, I was thinking backwards. Thinking 10 was the best and 1 the worst.

So my answer should of been a #2. Not #9
