"Referral Guidelines for seizure disorders have been established by the NAEC. Delayed or denied referral may be detrimental to the patient’s health, safety and quality of life.
If your seizures have not been brought under control after three months of care by a primary care provider (family physician, pediatrician), further neurologic intervention by a neurologist, or an epilepsy center if locally available, is appropriate.
If you are seeing a general neurologist, and your seizures have not been brought under control after 12 months, you should insist upon a referral to a specialized epilepsy center with an epileptologist"
How many patients have you swept under the rug over the years, and forgotten about because you "GAVE UP" on them trying to get their seizures under control instead of referring them on to a Epileptologist?
I know of one .... Me. After playing your pathetic games for over ten years, to the point you even quit requesting lab work on a regular basis. I had to refeer my self to an epileptologist, not once were those options put on the table while i was undr your care. Which clearly told me where your priorities were, and it sure didn't have anything to do with providing the best possible care for your patients.
You people are a complete disgrace to everyone in the neurological practice.
My advice to anyone whom reads this ....... Especially those with epilepsy, steer clear of Neurology Associates.
