Hey, Selma! :D


*May I ask where u heard of this dr??....*

I found his name on a hydrocephalus site.  I also had seen his name on a fibromyalgia site.  So, I called and left a message.  He personally called me himself.  That is very unusual for a doctor to call personally.


*Do u have an appointment already or looking to set something up for ur DD??*

Yes.  We do have an appointment, and I will let you know how it goes.


*And is this for a syrinx? Just wondering what specialty u r seeking.....I know u have used Dr R in the past.*

Yes, we have used Dr. Rosner in the past, and are still huge fans of his.  We just need to find someone closer to help us.  North Carolina is quite a jump.  And, Dr. Rosner is not able to operate on pediatric patients since the hospital he practices at no longer will do pediatric surgeries.


*I hope u can find more info on this dr or find one u r more able to get the info for.*
Thank you.  I appreciate your help on this forum.

Blessings,

Rebecca

U r welcome Rebecca,

Since u r trying to find someone closer I am assuming it is to work in conjunction with Dr R's dx. I know traveling to see drs can get expensive.

Angle flights helps as do many other orgs like wishes and rainbows.

We were pleased to find Variety House in NY....$25 a night for chiari patients and their families....it is just down the street from NSUH and the security from the hosp pick u up and take u back to the house no extra fee!!.....

I look forward to an update on this dr...he may be able to help others in ur area as well if all goes well. : )

We had a very good visit with Dr. Wiebe.  I would consider him a Chiari expert.  He is very kind and compassionate, and doesn't have to have a film to show him that there is a problem.  He understands about Chiari Zero, tethered cord, and syringomyelia.  His office is in Hattiesburg, MS.

As of now, I could not, with a clear conscience, recommend Dr. Wiebe.   While he was kind to my daughter, I  feel he did not manage her condition well.  Although he seems to be very knowledgeable, I just don't know that he's had the extensive experience that some of the other Chiari experts have had.

I truly don't mean to bash Dr. Wiebe at all, I just wanted to clarify my position on whether or not I would recommend him as a "Chiari expert".

You're very welcome, Selma! ;)  I hate to post negative things, but I just didn't want to mislead anyone about this doctor.  

How are you feeling??  I pray you are having pain free (or at least manageable) days!

Blessings to you,

Rebecca
