Guest tearose Posted February 3, 2004 Report Share Posted February 3, 2004 Although I have an excellent internist, he wanted me to follow up with a specialist for the dysautonomia. Since 1991 the only really good doctors for adults, based upon my years of living with POTS, were back at Mayo in MN. (You think I would have found something in NYC!) Now I don't make recommendations lightly and I have very high standards when it comes to suggesting anyone in the medical profession. I kept up on the news of a developing autonomic nervous system testing center that was in nearby CT. I even waited to follow up in person with Dr. Frederick Nahm, a dysautonomia/neurologist doctor I've been speaking by phone with for several months. YES, he even returns phone calls! I met with him in person today. He is very current on all the latest treatment plans and has an execllent working knowledge of the many aspects of autonomic dysfunction. He even considered what my other health challenges were doing to me! Today I am pleased to report that on a scale of 1-10 he rates an 8.5! This brings me much joy since I was over due to return to Mayo Clinic, MN and live in NY. I finally don't feel the need to go back to Mayo! Life's simple pleasures are the best!Just wanted to share the good news, tearose Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
