Has/does anyone see a chiari doctor at Duke University. I just got awarded medicaid and I am looking for a good Chiari doctor that accepts Medicaid. I have been seen at TCI but they doen't take WV medicaid as far as I can tell. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Dr. Bagley at Duke was my neurosurgeon and he was wonderful. He's very knowledgeable and is very thorough. I felt comfortable the first time I met him and knew I wanted him to do my surgery. I originally was hoping to get to Dr. Fuchs but he only works with children now I was told. Ultimately I think I was in the best hands for my situation.
I am not sure about Medicaid though but hopefully that is helpful.
Dr. Bagley at Duke was my surgeon also. I was referred to him by the head of neuro at Duke. It is also my understanding that Dr. Fuchs mainly works with children with a few exceptions. Dr. Fuchs sees many children with complex brain tumors also and is well loved by his young patients and their families.
Dr. Bagley did my decompression over a year ago. I was and am very pleased with him. He was very knowledgable about Chiari and with the issues I have had in my recovery. He has been very supportive and open to a broad range of treatment options for pain, etc. such as acupuncture and
continues to follow and be available to me as needed.
I have both Chiari and syringomyelia and I am, a year later, pretty much back to normal. I have very few limitations and am very grateful to the skill of Dr. Bagley for this success.
I don't know about the medicaid piece but a quick call to his clinic office at Duke Neurology would settle that.
