I was diagnosed about 3 yrs ago. The carbodpa/levodopa has never worked even with increases in the dose. I wanted to get a second opinion by a new dr. that just started in my town and is young and has new ideas. My old neurologist has talked to the new one about me, but won't let me see him. I can't even reach the new one by phone, plus his office won't call me back when I leave messages. I can hardly walk now.
