I had Decompression surgery May of 2010 in Milwaukee. I am from southern illinois and am currently looking for a neurologist to do my follow up appts with, manage meds, etc....Looking in the St Louis or surrounding area, central Illinois, Northern Kentucky...basically driving distance. Any and all recommendations would be greatly appreciated!! Hope you all are feeling well!!
DO u have a good PCP? U may want to start there or contact the NS that did ur surgery...many times they know other Drs in the same field or related field so they can suggest who can be a good one for u to follow up with.
I do not have a NL for all my post op meds etc....I go to my PCP who is reading up on Chiari and reading all my reports from my NS.....so some times we can do with out the NL unless u r in need of a new dx.
