    Hello to All,
    I am a new member to the MS Connection Discusstion group. Currently, I am without a neurologist. I was a patient at a large hospital based MS Clinic. Ovverall, I did not have a good experience. I am looking for a neurologist/small practice that has experience with MS patients, preferably nearer to Worcester, MA. Thank you for any suggestions.

    Thanks for the information. I was a patient of Dr. N. Sodha's many years ago. However, my PCP contacted Dr. Sodha's office and was told was not able to see me. 
    Honestly, I am looking to hear from patients actively receving care from providers in my area that are comfortable/happy with the physician and/or clinicians.
    I was also a patient at a large MS Clinic (hospital based) for many years. The physican was difficult to talk, phone calls not returned in a timely manner, felt more like a study specimen rather than a patient, etc.
    Hence, the reason why I was seeking patients with personal experiences.
