    I have been referred to the ms clinic in Ottawa ...

    Did you find an answer re: this neuro being at the clinic?

    Any name hints?? LOL. Who do I NOT want to see? I've seen some not-so-good ratings for certain neuro docs there.

    Would love to chat with folks who go to the Ottawa clinic -- currently it has the shortest wait time from TO east.

    Thank you :-).

    I have Dr. Crisp as my neurologist after trying one at St. Mikey's and Sunnybrook. I had previously been a patient of his for a completely unrelated issue to MS. I was very impressed then but, when my body began retaliating against me, he had a 6 mos. waiting list. A diagnosis of MS and 7 yrs. later, I was able to get him back as my G.P. Neurologist;
    I also see Dr. Feinstein at Sunnybrook.
    It appears we have more than living in Ontario, in common!

    Hey Aspen, I have tried to post my email and I don't think the moderator will allow it. Can any other members advise us new bees how to connect? I truly believe we both could benefit! My email is in my profile, however, I don't seem to be able to search others either?

    Thank you, Kickboxer ...

    ... for responding! I couldn't find your email -- I would love to message or email you if possible with more questions. Alternating between strong and not-so-much ... :-P.

    Thanks again!

    Nero- Eastern Ontario

    Hey! I am from Kingston, Ontario! My journey much like yours currently. I have officially been diagnosed since last fall after five years and two major flare ups. I attend KGH Nero department, Dr. Brunet. He has an amazing team. From the research we did and my family doctor the wait times seem to be the same between Toronto and Ottawa. Google him, he is active in the MS Society and has been involved in a lot of research. We find him to work very well with my family doctor and between the two, I am very comfortable with my treatment plan. I started Copaxone in October, usual drug issues but managing. Hang in there, my email is in my profile if you need more information. Good luck, stay strong.

    New here ...

    from eastern Ontario (greater Kingston area) and no diagnosis as of yet.

    I've just recently started with ms-like symptoms (facial pain, right-side weakness, memory and speech issues); just had a 2nd mri and would very much like people's opinions about the following ms clinics: Ottawa, Kingston, St. Mikes and McMaster. What are the neurologists like? What is the wait time (I've read here six months -- is that still the norm?), which have good supports and programs? Obviously some are closer than others, but it might be worth the drive.

    Additionally, I'm trying to look into the different neurologists --I've read through this (very long!) thread, but wondering if things may have changed. I've already had one misdiagnosis from my first neurologist which has slowed things down and I really want to be sent the right direction next time :-(.

    Thank you for any help or advice ... this wasn't the journey I was planning but looking forward to making the best of it :-).

    Hi Colleen

    I'm from Welland as well. I haven't been visiting MSWorld much in recent years, but it is definitely a great resource and community.

    Stay inspired!
    Michelle
