Dr. Oro
I got all my paperwork faxed into Kelly at Dr. Oro's office today. Hopefully she will be calling me back in the next week or two. They told me not to get anymore tests done except for the sleep study that I will be having on the 27th of Feb. For those of you who have seen Dr. Oro what is his procedures. Should I plan on staying there more than one day if he is doing tests? What test does he usually do? I only have a head scan showing the CM at 4-5mm Thanks Nichol

They had me stay 3 days for first time testing.  (out of towner visit)  They sent me to the hospital for more scans and xrays and to the eye dr for neurological exam.  I also went to their office for different testing all 3 days.  (last day I met Oro). It depends on what they think they need to check if they have you come out.

When i got home from work yesterday I had a call from Kimberly from Dr. Oro's office. I was supprised to hear from her so quickly. The office was closed then I got home. I tried calling her back today but the office is closed again. I am all wound up, can't wait to talk with her to find out our next plan of action.

I am sorry that you are not feeling well. I totaly forgot about the monster blizzard in Denver. Makes sense why no one is answering the phones. Hopefully you stay warm and start feeling better.
