    hello,

    I'm trying to understand the challenges that Alz patients go through when entering the healthcare system in the US. For example, are most patients diagnosed by a primary care physician or a neurologist? Do most patients receive medication thru home health agencies or thru long term care facilites.

    thank you.

    Maybe you might want to try posting this on the Alzheimer's Disease Message Board to the left and you might get more precise answers as they deal with this every day. Good luck and hope you get your answers.
