I know Abbott Northwestern has a great neuro dept.
I'm from Minnesota. My father spent a lot of time at Mayo. Its considered one of the best if not thee best hospital in the world. I'm sure thier nuerology dept is top notch.
Depends on what's wrong. When it comes to MS, we on the MS forum have a slogan, 'Hold the Mayo!' They have bizarre standards for MS diagnosis, but probably more important to you, they have a reputation for being, shall we say, snotty, to patients.
Of course there are likely to be many exceptions. But then there are also many other good hospitals for neurology. Hopkins is considered the best, at least by US News & World Report. So do your research and pick a good place close to you.
I have so many symptoms that could be MS or anything. All my tests are clear here in St. Paul. My only diagnosis is severe neuropathic pain with numbness, tingling, coldness, draining, tightening, burning, etc. They say that is all pain and will not really give it a label here.
That is good to here. My mom told me they are so nice to their patients too. It is funny how there are so many opinions out there. I am anxious to get the best care and maybe be admitted to their inpatient pain program.
Have you had all the testing for MS?
I am from Southern MN and we are all Mayo affiliated here. As i write this the helicopter is coming into town!
I have had all the tests I think. EMG, MRIs, ENS, lumbar puncture and tons of blood stuff. I have not been able to get a diagnosis yet. My hands and feet are becoming so stiff with pain that some days I can hardly use them.
