Neurologist in Long Island

Postby georgiak » Sat Jun 07, 2008 8:22 am

Looking for a neurologist to help with pain management for my 16 year old daughter. She was recently diagnosed with Chiari by Dr. Feldstein at Columbia Presbyterian in NY. He suggested being seeing a neurlogist locally for pain management as well. Any recommendations?

hi, i don't know how much good it will do but if your willing to travel Dr. John Honeycutt. He has a whole lot of experience with CM and SM. plus he is one of the few doctors that use an mri in surgery. He has a very strong faith and asks if he can pray for all of his patients before he does surgery.
hope all goes well

Dr. Roger Kula
at TCI (he takes most insurance plans)

I believe Dr.Mora is also a neurologist at TCI

I've had good experience with anesthesia pain management (versus neuro) docs as well.
Stony Brook has an excellent pain management facility just off campus
