We are seeing the primary dr for the first time since Mom was diagnosed with dementia and I really have a problem with this doctor to begin with. I don't like his bedside manner or his telling us about his medical problems and some of his other clients. Once he spent over an hour explaining to us about which type of bread was better for Mother to eat (she is pre-diabetes) he too is pre-diabetes and prefers white bread and knows he shouldn't eat it so he has none in his house.So who cares right? He didn't talk about the carb's, he talked about the calories in bread. Anyway, I just don't have a lot of confidence in this guy to take care of my Mother.
I attended my first support group last month and everyone was saying how disappointed in their primary doctor they were. This scares me. I would really like to find a different doctor but my Mother just loves this quack. What other types of doctors take care of folks with dementia and AL beside the geriatric doctors? Thanks ahead of time for any input.
