Dr. Repovic has a kind, gentle demeanor which helps you feel comfortable to talk with him. I have heard him speak at many MS informational dinners in the area and came specifically to see him because of that exposure. Hearing him speak at these dinners and answer questions afterwards indicated to me that he is very knowledgeable about MS and cares about what is happening to those of us with the disease.

He spent a remarkable amount of time with me, seemed thorough, and never appeared rushed or distracted.

Provider seems to not be interested in discussing any therapies other than ones he has prescribed. i.e. massage or vitamins

Many times I've been told, "we don't do that here." And I feel sometimes my concerns are dismissed due to a lack of communication between the nursing team, vocational therapist, and my doctor. I was recently told to go on disability by my employer due to cognitive difficulties and my doctor didn't seem to care - he ignored it completely. Otherwise my experience has been very positive and encouraging.

On this visit, as on my initial visits of [...] & [...], Dr. Repovic was very thorough in reviewing my history and concerns & spent more time with me than 95% physicians I have seen over many years.

At times I've wished I had a less formal doctor, a woman perhaps

Two things that bothered us as we left the appointment. What kind of MS am I dealing with? [...] How to be sure? Where to go from here? [...] The other concern, Dr. said it sounds like we need help with figuring out daily mechanics and referred us to a rehab Dr. in the same office to help. However this appt. isn't until January... this doesn't seem like good care overall. That is the bottom line, and yes, I waited a long time for this visit, and yes, I am disappointed.
