Chiari Specialists in California

Long story short I have Chiari 1 with a 5 mm herniation. Who are true Chiari specialists in California? All my research seems to points to the East Coast.

  Hi IMtiredofdoctors and welcome to the Chiari forum.

We can not say who are true Chiari Drs......we do have a list of names these were compiled by members of Drs they have been to, treated by and liked,,,the list is here and offered so you have a starting place to research Drs.....we all have to educate ourselves and  see a few Specialists b4 we find the right one....

We do seem to have more here on the East Coast, but I still had to travel out of state to get to one I felt confident and comfortable with.

  I will post names for CA, but again it is not a referral nor an endorsement for those listed.
