    How was your appointment with Dr. Alpers?

    May 13, 2022
    The one trustworthy neuromuscular disease physician. After failing to get a diagnosis with other doctors, I was sent to Vanderbilt where I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis. I then was having to go in the hospital every few months in crisis. Dr. Alpers changed my treatment, and I haven't been in the hospital but once, with the flu. He's thorough, honest, and caring.
