Supportive GP offered to help me find a supportive Neuro

My GP is a breath of fresh air, he is older (50 plus) but without a doubt very interested in being a little new age. I only starting seeing him since moving back to Australia after having searched for a while to find one. My first appointment with him focussed on us building a good team! What a breath of fresh air. He has his old fashioned quirks, but he is open to me expressing my opinion.

As some of you will remember, I had a horrible neurology appointment 2 months ago, where I was told that my MS must be bad because of my MRI; this was despite me being relatively relapse free for 3 years, running a 10 km race last year, breastfed a child, working full time and exercising and running as much as possible. My neurologist declared that I couldn´t be this good considering my MRI. This was my first experience with a neurologist in Australia after moving from Norway and he broke me, psychologically it took me weeks to recover from that. It was you guys who offered some hope!!

Anyway, my lovely doctor yesterday said to me; "we need to find you a positive neurologist that sees you for the positive and healthy person you are". He is now on a mission to find me someone new and positive!!

I would however like some help. For those of you in Victoria (aka Melbourne), can you email me any great neurologist you have had experience with?

I hope all are doing well!

That's awesome. We must award a gold star to that GP, they are worth their weight in gold!

It has been over 12 months since my neurologist retired was wondering if anyone from this post has found a good neuro in the melbourne area. I have already dismissed my old neuros recommendation as a bad joke.

Thanks guys

Hi Melbourne people

I see someone in Melbourne who is positive but is not an MS specialist but is a Neurologist in the CBD area. She is very open minded and I feel uplifted after seeing her which was allot different from the MS specialist I was seeing before who luckily was relocated to another state.

If you are interested in a name and number, please private message me and would be glad to pass on her details. Like with most good specialists, she is hard to get an early appointment with.
