Are today's neurologists a joke?

On disability, Gran Mal (monthly) & Petit Mal (weekly)
Have headaches in left-temporal(area of seizures)
I was born with epilepsy, on the same meds all my life. Was tested yearly with EEG until a adult. Nowadays, I go to the doctor and all I do is fill-out forms for symptoms. My neurologists (never lays a hand on me)suggests I go to a breathing specialist. (medicare pays 80%). The specialist says: "breathing might be affecting your seizures. Specialists wants to me to do home testing for sleep monitoring.
This is going to cost thousands, so I told the breathing specialist that he is a rip-off.
Exercises I do:
1. Bicycling 20 mi. treks up & down terrains (non-stop)
2. Home Gardening
3. Home exercise equipment

What should I do with this situation, fear of losing disability.
