Lemtrada Round 2 in ABOUT 2 Weeks

Yesterday was exactly 1 year from the day I did my first Lemtrada infusion. I also had an appointment to see my neurologist at his new clinic to try to actually get on the schedule in their infusion center. We had a hell of a time trying to even find the place because the appointment¬†scheduler gave me the address to the wrong office! That office told me that on Wednesdays he is in the “San Bernardino office” so I pulled up their website on my phone to look at the addresses for all their locations. There was only one other location and it was on San Bernardino street so it must be that one right? Nope. We showed up and after walking around and not finding what I was looking for I called them back to try to figure out what was going on. Apparently, the location he was at is not on the website so I took down the actual address and we were off to another location. This time,¬†we pull up and it’s a pharmacy that shares a building with what looked like a physical therapy clinic so once again I call them back. Finally, they tell me that I am in the right place; I just needed to check in at the physical therapy looking place. Weird but it was definitely a doctor’s office so I am not sure if they just bought the building or what. One thing was for sure, this clinic was not sponsored by “big pharma” and when I brought it up that was one of the main reasons my doctor was happy to have moved here; no crazy red tape and they actually run a foundation that pays for any healthcare (be it prescription cost or an MRI) a patient might need so now all his MS patients “can get what they need instead of what they can just afford”.
