My father just got his appointment scheduled for testing the end of Feb. We are concerned it is so far away. Is this normal? His symptoms are worsening. Swallowing and chewing food are getting more difficult. Need advice.
A two month wait for an appointment at the Duke ALS Clinic is very common.The appt is with Duke ALS Clinic. He has seen his local Neuro in NC who has referred him to Duke. MRI was clear no stroke and no MS. His symptoms are characteristic of MG and bulbar onset ALS. Mainly problems with slurred speech and swallowing. Can only eat certain foods.
