I went to my neurologist for my appointment on the 18, as I was signing in I was told that I would have to pay the balance of my bill or the Dr, wouldn't see me i have been making monthly payments and had it paid down to 125.00, now I am looking for a new neurologist, I just couldn't belive my Dr. would do that. If ant of you live in or around Pine Bluff or Little Rock AR and know of a good one please let me know, oh by the way I have diabetic neuropathy and it has caused a lot of nerve damage. Thanks guys for your help.

Good Morning!
Don't take it too hard, it's all about business, and depending on which side of the coin that you are on in this matter (practioner, or patient) there is cause for debate of this action.
Take a few minutes to do a directory search online (internet) of your area to find another neurologist or talk to your primary care physician if you have one, your main area of concern is your health, Good Luck!

Please know your not alone. Each year my neuropathy increases its range, almost all the bottoms of my feet are numb, and the sides and two outside fingers on each hand. Stay active

I don't live anywhere near you, but I too suffer from neuropathy. I'm numb pretty much to my knees and my hands are getting bad now. I hope you find a doctor soon, and one that has a little more compassion. Hugs and prayers!
