Physician list

How can I locate the list of physicians experienced with Chiari treatment that has been referenced by other users? Tried several search options without success. I am new to this community.

  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

MedHelp is undergoing a format change so in the meantime the Heath Pages with the list of Drs is not available to the users ....so I ask which states they want to look into and I copy and paste those smaller lists to the thread...the complete list is too large to do that.

AND the list is not a referral nor an endorsement of the Drs it is meant as a starting point to research Drs.....

I see you are in FL....do you only want Drs for that state?

  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

I am sorry we do not have any Drs listed for Utah.

Drs well experienced and informed are rare....so many of us do travel to get to a Dr.

Will your INS cover you elsewhere?
Thank you for the welcome! I will have to look into my insurance, but I may have found a surgeon here. :D

  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

We do have 2 Drs listed for CO, but one Dr Oro is said to be retiring and I do not know that he is taking any new patients at this time or who will be taking over for him.....I do not know much about the other Dr on the list.

Keep in mind the list is not a referral nor an endorsement for those listed, it is meant to be used as a starting point to research Drs.

Dr. John Oro
