I'll be traveling to NY to The Chiari Institute. There are some NS's in CT... I know Dr. Deluna is over at Yale, but it really depends on your case. I'm going to need posterior-fossa decompression along with craniocervical fusion so TCI is the right place for me. Have you seen anyone yet or received any diagnosis? Just know that although there are a lot of "chiari specialists" around, their level of specialty is really what matters. For instance some NS's are still opening the dura and patching it back up, but this is an outdated procedure. Anyways, you're so close to NY, if you can work it out, you should just go to TCI :) feel free to message me any time, it's nice knowing there's fellow CT Chiarian around <3
