I have a question regarding the EMG test. I have it scheduled for tomorrow with a local neurologist and have heard from a couple of people that this particular doctor does not have a good reputation and does not have a good bedside manner. My question is is it real important to have this test done by a top notch doctor or is it the type of test that will provide the results without much interpretation from the person conducting the test. I'm just wondering if unreliable test results come from a doctor who may not be performing the test correctly or who may be reading the results incorrectly. It seems like such an important test, and where I live less than an hour from a major teaching hospital (Mass. General) and am thinking it might be wiser to schedule this test with an ALS neurology specialist. I'm so nervous..If anyone has any comments I would truly appreciate it.
