Need a NS or NL for a second opinion?

Postby cricketke » Mon Jun 02, 2008 11:36 pm

I need to find a NS or NL in Kansas City area or anywhere in Kansas (due to medicaid). How do I get a listing of doc's in the midwest? My grandson is having problems and his NS doesn't feel that he needs another MRI. He has only had one two years ago, (which was 3 mos. after decompression). I feel he needs another one and I would like to have a second opinion to evaluate his condition. He is 10 yo and doesn't always cooperate the best with the doc's, so a pediatric NS or NL would be best. Please offer any doc's that you might recommend. He has CM, SM, hydrocephalus, VP shunt, scoliosis, hx of spinal menningitis as an infant.
