Customer Question
I've been diagnosed with...

I've been diagnosed with Parkinson's. I've been trying to make an appointment with a neurologist through my own family doctor since I need to be referred. But to no success, unable to book an appointment. My condition is worsening, day by day. I'm 82 years old and I need to be a little more mobile to finish some of my chores.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

The meds I'm on are all as prescribed by my doctor.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, all is covered by my doctor.
