    I am 76. I am a retired APRN. I have had years of me doctor, you patient treatment. I have RLS. It is not life threatening but it has greatly affected my quality of life. I came armed with research and my husband's support and backing to my first appointment with Dr. Ali when he was a fellow. He was interested in me as a person, intrigued by the research I had, and willing to work with me. John and I were blown away! I am on Methadone 5 mg at night with Mirapex 1 gm at night. My RLS is in good control. Monday's visit addressed the swelling in my legs and the numbness in my feet. The Resident and Medical Student worked together at history taking and a thorough neuro exam. I had been told before at another Neurology Clinic that I do not have neuropathy. Dr. Ali used a tuning fork and I have a significant polyneuropathy. I am to get further labs. And I have agreed to start weaning Mirapex very slowly. I have an excellent relationship with Dr. Ali and know that he will respond to any messages I send. My PCP has Dr. Ali at the top of her Neurologist referral list.

    I was very impressed. I have been to other restless leg syndrome doctors but he was the best. Never had an exam like he done. He had me doing different things. Best exam I have had. He talked to me about medicines and seemed to be concerned trying to help me.
