One last time, any docs in Ohio?

Postby toport20 » Fri Sep 02, 2011 12:44 am

Hi all,

Didn't know if anyone could give me personal advice on docs in OH? I've been to Cleveland Clinic and personally can't go back there again. Also went to Mayfield Clinic to see Dr. Tew, I feel he's good but I'm afraid he's about at retirement age. I need a perm NS from somewhere. Becky, if you read this I'm checking on doc at OSU but really don't see any "experience" listed with the doc you gave me on Chiari or Syringomyelia.

I'm in need of a PFD, syrinx is growing fast, went from 3mm wide to 9mm in the past couple of years. All I do is sleep, anyone else like this? Help! Thanks!
