You can try this neurologist that the neuropathy association recommends Dr. Terry J Petrella. Go to [url][/url] click on resources, then neurologists from drop down, then Florida and read through the list to find this doctor. He may not be an expert on GBS/CIDP but he would know neuropathy’s.

I think this name sounded familiar to me because he was one of the neurologists who spoke about GBS/CIDP at the Phoenix Symposium two years ago, so if you can travel to Phoenix try to see Dr. David Saperstein as your first choice. Our foundation can confirm it and give you more info about how to contact him.

Another neuropathy site recommends these doctors, but I don’t know if they are familiar with GBS and CIDP.
Dr. David Bamford, University of Arizona, College of Medicine

And Mayo Clinics usually are know for excellent doctors,

I don’t know how far you are from Birmingham, AL, but I feel that I received excellent care for my GBS at University Hospital there. It is a teaching hospital w/in the UAB system.

Hello John,
The first thing you should do is to call our foundation and ask them if they can refer you to a neurologist in San Antonio.

This is the best I could do using a search, neurologychannel was the only one that listed doctors in San Antonio. It does not state whether they have experience with gbs/cidp.
