She is very knowledgeable with POTS, NCS etc., and does a very detailed exam and testing. She also went through a detailed medical history with me, reviewing the medical records I brought with me. I had a tilt test done at my first visit and she explained the results after the test. I then had a Blood Volume with Hemodynamics test done the following week. With that test, you dont get results right away and they are mailed to you. So I didn't get an explanation with that. I would suggest getting the testing done and having her consult with your regular physician, rather than relying on her for your daily care.

Hi.. yes I agree that she is very good at history and testing.. and she is thurough...

I had my appointment with her and then she decided to do a tilt table test.. and I had it done then... and then after that I was suppose to have the blood volume with hemodynamic test done... but they were ubabke to get a vein.. or a big enough vein to do the test.. so I was unable to have it done..I was able to have the majority of testing done in 2 days..

But I also agree that they fllow up care is not ideal...

but worth the visit...

good luck to you..

Hello, I seen Dr. Fuad At Cleveland Clinic. She is very nice but Hard to understand with her accent. I have been with Dr. Stillman ever since. What is wild is that DR. Stilman and Dr. Grubb know each other and Dr. Grub sometimes sends a paitent to Dr. Stilman every once in a while for a second opinion. I Love Dr. Stilman and am very Lucky to have found him. Anyways, good luck with Dr. Fuad she is really good.

I also went to see Dr. Fouad, yes for me also she was hard to understand. I think I saw her a total of three times. First, for just a consultation, second for tilt test and then for the dye test. She is great for history and dealing with pots, but also hard to get a hold of for follow up care.

My suggestion, if you are able to do a followup for test results, do it. I just received them in the mail, and now wish I would have done the followup in office for results.

Good luck!

Tracy
