From the book's Introduction to the reader, the book "Diagnosis and Treatment of Myasthenia Gravis" by Dr. Joel Oger, MD, FRCPC

Dear Reader,

During my many years of following Myasthenia Gravis (MG) patients, I have noticed
that physicians adhere to relatively similar therapeutic plans. Most helpful to MG
patients, however, is the practitioner’s attention to details that include a clear and
exhaustive plan for drug titration. This handbook's detailed approach will make the patient
confident that he or she has found the doctor in whom he or she can put his or her

The booklet has been written with neurology residents in mind as an easy reference
document that they can access when they have to admit their first MG patient. It will
also be useful to neurologists in general practice who need a refresher because one
does not see a new MG patient often. It could also help other health care professionals
when the time comes to counsel patients. I have often suggested to my patients to purchase and donate this type of booklet to their family doctors as soon as they have been diagnosed.
