Greedy Neurologists-Knowledge is Power

You mentioned "Greedy Neurologists" who have prescription preferences because of the added extras (drug administration costs/safety monitoring/blood tests, etc.).

Whilst you want Neuros to give advice.......each choice has pros and cons....These are medical, but can have financial implications.


Just remember Knowledge is Power and the more you know about your disease, the treatments, your choices, your personality and the pros and cons of each choice then YOU can make the best choices for YOU. 


For those in the UK, who are not getting private consultations, your choices are not going to make your Neurologist rich, they'll get the same salary (but read prof G's comments)

For those paying.......remember Knowledge is Power and your Neuro really does want to help you and those tests, often put there by the regulators for your safety, are for your benefit.
