I've recently been diagnosed with Chiari I malformation. I'm looking at the Mayfield Clinic for an NS. I saw Dr. Tew on the doctors list at this site. I'm not sure that he's still available though. Can anyone recommend anyone else from there? Thanks for your help.
We do not recommend Drs, we do have a list that u saw, to help u research drs...as u have to be comfortable with the Dr and that is y u should see a few and compare them...I may like someone and u may not....so it is diff to refer.
U may have to travel to get to a Dr, but I am curious as to what u meant by Dr Tew not being available?
Again, I would suggest u review our list of Drs and call a few and research them....find the one that is best for u....
I saw Dr. Tew recently. I can't attest to his skills as a surgeon because I've not had surgery but I would recommend him. He spent time, asked questions, answered them all, gave details and specifics. A lot of one on one time and not with office personnel or even a nurse, just him giving his undivided attention. But that's my experience. Others may have different opinions.
I've had an MRI. The doctor is scheduling a cine MRI. My sister had surgery for a Chiari 4 weeks ago. Since she already did a lot of research, I picked up where she left off. She found that Mayfield was number one in the country as well as John Hopkins. I choose Mayfield, but had to choose the doctor that I wanted to see. The info I found on the doctors was very limited. With what info I found I choose Dr. Robert Bohinski. He was well rated by his patients, but I would still like to find out more info on him. Any info or direction would be greatly appreciated
