Well, my former neurologist retired. My primarcy care doctor referred me to another neurologist. The relationship didn't start well. On my first visit, the office staff, who I can only compare to a cabal of drunken lemurs on crack lost my appointment, couldn't figure out how to process my insurance (I have Blue Cross, so its not like its a provider nobody has ever heard of before - well at least nobody other than the lenur cabal) so that I ended up in the waiting room for four hours!
The neurologist herself seemed okay.
Earlier this year she ordered a follow-up MRI. As usual, the MRI facility gave me a copy of the CD, but not a copy of the report, citing (erroneously) HIPPA. I couldn't get a copy of it from the doctor until my follow-up visit in September because the neurologist is afraid of liability should the report say something that causes me to go harm myself.
So, after having my MRI and waiting six months to get the results, I had my appointment with my new neurologist. I was releived to see that the lemur cabal had been replaced by an office staff that seemed much more competent and capable.
After the field sobriety test that the doctor calls an "evoked potentials test" (and which is a lot more expensive than a field sobriety test which the police will administer for free under the right circumstances), she said that my MRI showed no progression and that I didn't need to come back for a year.
Gee, it looks like there may be something to the CAP after all.
