I live outside the Philadelphia are and was dx with Chiari about 7 years ago, have been managing quite well, but lately have been having headaches more frequently, looking to see if there are any Chiari Specialists in the Philadelphia/Central, Southern New Jersey Area
I live a hour and a 1/2 North of Philly and went to Philly for a chiari dr...no luck there even with a so called expert....would not suggest it.
U may have a diff experience, but from what I have learned over the past 4 yrs is u want a true chiari specialist not a NS that just treats it....
U can either go to MD, Baltimore, or NC, or up to NY...all 3 places have chiari specialists and I would suggest u look at a few to compare and see which u r most comfortable with.
We do have a list of Drs compiled of the members drs names, this list is not a referral but a means to help u get started with ur research of Drs.
