Guest posted a topic in PANS / PANDAS (Lyme included)We were supposed to leave Florida monday and see Dr. N tuesday but the receptionist just called and said we have to see a "Dr. Derek Chong". He has good ratings online and 3 very good reviews, but I don't know anything about him. Any advice would be welcome. My mom can't reschedule everything, she works full time as R.N. in busy hospital. WE have rented a loft as well. Can't say I'm not disappointed. He is board certified in neurology, psychiatry, and sleep medicine, which is GOOD. Can anyone give any advice in dealing with this situation? One time I was supposed to see a top M.E./CFS specialist in Miami and we ended up seeing her partner and it was a hellish experience. The "partner" doctor didn't have much knowledge, bad bedside manner, spent thousands of dollars and couldn't help me at all!!!!!!!!!! This happened to one of my best friends b/c we went down there at the same time, and this "partner's" treatment actually made my friend permanently worse so this is the concern we are having. Is it safe to see a partner? My experience when this happened was terrible. What I do like about this situation is: "1. He always returns calls/Emails promptly 2. he answers all my concerns/questions and never makes me feel "crazy" no matter how crazy they are 3. He fits me into his schedule if I need to be seen immediately 4 . He never makes me feel rushed in an appointment and will spend however much time is needed to answer all my questions 5. he asks a lot of questions and is very thorough in examining 6. http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Derek_Chong/reviews#ixzz2klDz5dn7" Also the day and time was rescheduled from afternoon which is better for me to VERY early in the morning (major sleep disorders). Thanks.
