my Mayo Clinic visit

November 18, 2006 at 9:05 am

Hi Howard,

I went to the Mayo Clinic in July for a 2nd opinion. I was very impressed with the professionalism, testing, and especially the quick diagnosis. I went to doctors for 2-3 years before getting a real diagnosis, but when I went to Mayo in Rochester, MN — I had my diagnosis in just over a week. Unfortunately they did confirm CIDP. They agreed with my current treatment of IGIV. Good luck. I hope all works out for you and they can help.


[QUOTE=Howard]My nuerologist has daignosed me with CIDP. He also suggested he could give me a referral to Mayo Clinic for second opinion. Is there anyone out there who could share their experiences at Mayo? How were the doctors/staff? Were they exahaustive in their evaluations? How long did you have to spend there for your evaluation? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
