I'm not sure the FMLA paperwork has been completed. I haven't seen a copy yet. Also, the post-surgery medication (anti-seizure and steroids) is giving me challenging side effects. There wasn't much information from Florida Hospital on dealing with those and how to taper them off. I have made an appointment with my primary care physician for help with that.

Dr. Makar takes the time to explain my options and the why or why nots of treatment. Would recommend because he listens, involves me in deciding how to proceed with care, not overbearing/overpowering.
