Dr. Mayuga and team are the first ones I can actually say listened to me. The last provider I had told me to drink pedialyte and hydrate. Dr. Mayuga listened to me and what really stuck with me is he said. "I don't bandaid problems with medicine, I try to find the root cause of the problem" or something along those lines. For the last 7 months it has been try this medicine, stop this medicine, oh it's the medicine that is causing this. it was literally a sigh of relief to meet Dr. Mayuga who said, "we have to do more" Within 2 days I was having testing done, and within a few days he had one of his associates who called who told me Dr. Mayuga is referring your to Autonomic Neurology, your testing showed some abnormalities. After all the medicine and tests for the past 7 months I have dealt with, I thought I was losing my mind and it was all in my head, the constant dizziness and blood pressure issues. I just want to truly say thank you to Dr. Mayuga and team for listening to me, expressing genuine concern, and pointing me in the right direction.
