Hi Karen (KK1954)

There are several good CIDP specialist choices in Seattle if you don’t mind a couple hours drive up the 5!

Earlier this year I researched CIDP treatment options in the Seattle area and have been in contact with some of the doctors and their assistants. I am aware of three facilities in Seattle that appear to have good GBS/CIDP specialists:

• University of Washington – Department of Neurology … Dr Michael Weiss
• Swedish – Cherry Hill Campus … Dr Liou Lee-Loung
• Northwest Hospital and Medical Center … Dr Marc Kirschner

Here is another GBS/CIDP forum thread about docs in Seattle:

There are no doubt other choices that I am not aware of. Maybe others reading this thread can offer some more suggestions in and around the Portland, OR area.

I plan (after 1/1/14 when new Medicare rules go into affect) to undergo the stem cell transplant treatment being offered by the University of Seattle – Dr George E. Georges.

Good luck and let us know if you find a good CIDP Doc.
