NEW JERSEY — A Maryland man with a debilitating neurological disorder says he will be unable to practice medicine because of a lack of an appointment for a neurological condition he has been diagnosed with.
Norman Lee said he was not able to make the appointment for his MD-VOA medical license until Friday because of the condition.
“I will probably be in some pain,” Lee told the Baltimore Sun on Friday.
“I will just have to wait a little longer for a appointment.”
The Maryland Department of Public Health and Social Services said in a statement that Lee’s physician had scheduled an appointment to provide the necessary documentation for Lee to make his appointment.
Lee said he had to travel to New York City for the appointment because he was working a full-time job and not on disability.
Lee was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a progressive neurological disorder, which causes abnormal changes in the body’s immune system, said the department.
The condition can cause a person to be more sensitive to the effects of toxins.
Lee’s neurologist recommended he have a CT scan of his brain every four months to see if he had any worsening symptoms.
Lee said it took a year for his neurologist to diagnose the condition, which was not disclosed to the public.
Lee is scheduled to have a neurologist and a neurology specialist review his medical records in the next two months to determine if the diagnosis should be added to his medical record, according to a letter from Lee’s neurology physician.
Lee has had to take medications to treat the condition since May, when he first tested positive for the disease.
Lee, an engineer by trade, has been taking the medication to help with the pain and discomfort he feels every day.
It has been the most difficult time of my life, he said.
He said he is not sure if the medications he has taken will help alleviate his symptoms, but he has tried to be as careful as possible and has avoided all the typical medical procedures.
Lee says he feels fine but can’t take his medication.
“I’m not able right now to get around, so it’s really tough,” Lee said.
“It’s really difficult to walk without it.”
The MD-VTOA is a state-run medical license for physicians and nurses.
The MD-VOWA is the MD-VEA.
The MD VOA requires a physician to be registered with the state.
The VOA is designed to provide a wide range of medical services, including mental health, vision care, medical imaging, and physical examination.
The VA provides a statewide physician network that provides all medical services in the state, including emergency and life support services.
