Best Kaiser Dr's in Central California for new dx

I went to my Dr in February for several "random" problems I was having. She did some blood work and then 'wait and see'. Last week I caught a terrible virus and was in the hospital with the worst head and neck pain of my life (on top of throwing up, fever and chills). They did a Spinal tap and CT scan to check for meningitis and found it have Chiari...all aligned with the "random" symptoms I had been complaining about months before. I have an mri this week. I would love to get the names of any Kaiser Dr's that others have had a good experience with. Thank you so much

  Hi Luv2teachK and welcome to the Chiari forum.

We do have a list of Drs for CA but I am not sure anymore which ones are with Kaiser.....I am sure with some research on these you can find the right Dr for you....the list is not a referral nor an endorsement  it is meant to be used as a starting point to research Drs....

Educate yourself on Chiari and ALL related conditions to help you determine which Dr is right for you.
