Just checking on you in case you are trying to scam them. Those scammer doctors can't remember what answer they gave to question #4 by the time they get to question #5.

Hey! A whiole new client cohort for neurologists - short-term memory impaired scamming doctors. But the profit margin may be a little thin when factoring in thew professional discount.

stay safe.

Just in case you were distracted...

They are trying to catch you in a lie. Ha ha

Well, without being able to see what it says after "with", there's no way to know that they're the same question.

I mean, if it is for seizures, for example, the words after "with" could be for different types of seizures.

Perhaps a neurologist can explain how things can be different.

Reminds me of the old Robin Williams line: In the dictionary, under "redundant" it says "see redundant."

What Patsy said. MS is no fun for the Pt. and this is the sort of thing that makes it worse. The MD may think he/she/it has trouble, but this disease is the pits.

They're just making sure.

Thanks for the earworm, Lou. Haven't thought of that song in years...

Ah Grumpy...love it when you find the typos and repeats.

MS sucks and yes, looks like this survey did, too.

Obviously, they're not paying folks to edit them.

I repeat myself when under stress.

I hate forms that do that ... I am always tempted to answer each question differently.

When my husband went in for an operation we had to do the 'pre-op' stuff and we filled in countless forms with the "Do you smoke?" question ... and then EVERY person we spoke to (and there were half a dozen of those) asked the question again - seriously!!! By the end I was biting my tongue so I wouldn't answer YES (he's a non-smoker and always has been!!!).

Doesn't echolalia have a neurogenic basis? At least, they have the right audience for their next question - "Can you diagnose the writer's problem?" Tricia

You missed Question 6: Is the patient older than 18 years of age?
