Need help to find treatment for Eagles Syndrome

My daughter is 19 yrs old was recently diagnosed with Eagle Syndrome.  The difficulty herein lies, that she is on Med-Cal, healthnet. Firstly, I am looking for physician who has heard of this, and takes Med-Cal. She has been shuffled to doctors, dentists, and they state they have never heard of such a thing. Guess they haven't heard of the internet.  The initial diagnosis was made by a dentist checking her for TMJ. It seems to me, that a learning facility/University would be interested in something like this. Can anyone recommend someone in California. We live in the central valley (Fresno)

Did you try UCLA? I got a second opinion in Ohio (of all places) by an ENT called Dr. Lees, who had spent a lot of time at the UCLA Head and Neck center...He's the first guy who diagnosed me with Eagle's syndrome. I was impressed.  

I live in AZ so I had my surgery done here by an ENT at the Mayo Clinic who had done the surgery many times before.

It took me a while to find a doctor to treat Eagles once I got diagnosed with it by my ENT.  I called around to all the learning hosiptals in the area, luckily there are three.  I finally found one at John Hopkins in Baltimore and I'm having my surgery in two days to get my Eagles resolved.  I recommend you call around the area in CA and ask for the dept of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and you will most likely find the specialist in that deptarment if they are with that hospital.  

Be patient and Good luck!
