Referral for Doctor

Hi there. I live in North Carolina and wondering if you have anyone on your resource list in the Raleigh/Durham area?
I have seen a few NS & neurologists around here but not finding an expert. I'm managing symptoms with Diamox for now.
Also, I have a consult with Dr. Greenfield at Weil-Cornell in NYC set for next month as I am willing to travel if needed. Would appreciate opinion on him if available.
Thanks so much.

Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

We do have a list of Drs, the List however is not meant as a referral or endorsement....it is meant to be used to research Drs in your area....Members here list the Drs they have been to, treated by and liked. That said we are all different and you must find the right one for you!

The best way to select a Dr is to educate yourself on Chiari and ALL related conditions to know if the Dr you are going to, is as well versed on ALL the conditions too....they can affect the outcome of treatments if overlooked. Please use this list to research Drs.

Drs  are always presenting that treat Chiari....so we do not always know of Drs that members are finding....it is by them going and researching them that this list is possible. I have not heard of the Dr you plan to see in NY.
