    Hello,
    As the law suit progresses we are under the impression that Retired Players should wait for a scheduled Dr.’S appointment with an NFL sanctioned Doctor. Because of this many are not going to the Neurologist to get treatment for their medical issues from the concussions they incurred during their years playing in the NFL. My thought is that there may be other players who need treatment immediately, however, are not getting it waiting for the NFL to contact them with a Dr they can see. Has this issue been addressed especially for players that played in the 70’s and are older now so the diseases like dimentia are making it difficult for them to make clear decisions? Most importantly to our family and families like ours I believe is getting our loved ones treatment so their health is addressed not necessarily the monetary value of these evaluations. Many families have children in school for instance that is being cheated out of having their father well and able to engage in their activities. Where do we go for direction to make sure the Neurologist we ultimately go and see is a sanctioned NFL Doctor? Thank you!
