Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 18 days ago.

if your doctor recommended that you see a neurologist, you should see a neurologist in your area.

do you need help to find a neurologist?

your insurance company or your primary care doctor should be able to refer you to see a neurologist.

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
I have Medicare, so my choices are limited. The neurologist my doctor recommended did not accept Medicare.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 18 days ago.

actually most doctors take medicare.

medicare covers 80% of your costs,

you may need a secondary insurance to cover the final 20%.
