I have been through six different neurologists (she is my seventh) many different medicines. I will never be seizure free, but Dr. Stanko has come the closest to it since I have been diagnosed with epilepsy 15 years ago. She actually listens to her patients. When a medicine had bad side effects I was not told by her to wait a couple of weeks for my body to adjust to it. I was actually told I know my body the best. Other doctors in past treated me like "I'm the doctor, you're the patient, do as I say, your opinion doesn't matter, you are not the expert, I don't care how much research you have done, you have no place to say maybe a different medicine would be better, and you don't ask about different treatments, I tell you what they are"....those words were not used by them, but they might have well said them. Dr. Stanko never made me feel inferior. She actually looked into the different treatments I had heard of to see if it was a possibility, even though she was sure it wouldn't work for me, she still made sure there were no new finds in those treatments and contacted other experts to see if they would say the same as far as my condition goes (not a simple one; diagnosed with 3 diff. forms/types of seizures). I thought I would never have such a great doctor. She knows what she's doing and she is a people person at the same time.
