Introduction to the reader, the book "Diagnosis and Treatment of Myasthenia
Gravis" by Dr. Joel Oger, MD, FRCPC
my many years of following Myasthenia Gravis (MG) patients, I
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
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.
