I am very new to this forum, so I apologise if this is in the wrong place.
My dad was diagnosed with PD 7 months ago, quite young as he is only 57. He is really struggling with his medication and feels the side effects out weigh the benefits at the minute. He has been put on tablets and then doesn't see anyone for 2-3 months with no review of how the tablets are working. Has anyone else experienced this and is it normal?
He also feels the consultant he is seeing has no time for him as my dad struggles to find the words to be able to answer his questions. Can anyone recommend a Consultant in Northern Ireland that is patient and will explain everything clearly?
Thank you to anyone who can help.
