I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
What to do when you get a letter saying your Neurologist has left the practice
What a disappointment! You might begin with the new doctor and ask for a referral or recommendation to a dementia specialist.
Or call the Helpline and ask a Care Consultant for names of suitable doctors in your area.
If you are a member of a support group, ask some of the members about their own doctors.
I wish you success in finding a knowledgeable doctor for yourself!
Sometimes, a medical office will not give out information as to where a physician has gone to. I have had this happen; I used Google with the name of the doctor and city and found the information as to where the physician had moved to.
When my wife’s neurologist moved on, her case was reassigned
to one of his colleagues. I would suggest asking them if they have another
neurologist on staff or if they can recommend one.
