Slee, I'm so glad you had a good experience with the MN Sleep Institute. I saw Dr. Mulrooney at the Woodbury office, and he was OK, but the nursing staff left a lot to be desired. After I augmented, I had an appointment with the nurse practitioner (don't remember which one) who tried to prescribe me a CPAP, even though I clearly didn't have apnea, and wanted to totally ignore the fact that I was having horrible augmentation issues. Then, after she put me on Vicodin, they wouldn't refill it, and Dr. Mulrooney told me that if I needed painkillers I would have to go to the Pain Clinic. (I have painful symptoms since augmenting on Requip.)
I had trouble because Dr. Mulrooney kept cancelling my appointments because of illness, and the nurses would only call in my prescription for Vicodin for the number of days until my rescheduled appointment. And then when I was going on a trip and was out of meds, I called and called and they didn't call me back until after I had left town.
This all reminds me that I really do need to fire off a letter to the clinic director because of the horrible treatment I got there.
Anyway, it sounds like things have maybe improved. I hope so! Please keep us posted.
