    I have been trying for weeks to get an appointment. I made a post on Google, called left messages etc.. 5/24/2022 after calling ETHET line a kind gentleman left messages with office mgr, referral line. I get a call from your scheduler to say, the soonest appointment was September. I explained the since of urgency in that my PCP needed me to see a neurologist as soon as possible. There was no since of urgency & I explained I was scared. My right eye is almost closed due to bells palsy. The most she offered was a waiting list in case of a cancellation. The process of getting another referral & find a neurologist who takes my insurance is frustrating. I’m leaving this comment in hopes that tou see it & possibly work me in.
