      NY manhattan – Dr. Norman Latov, New York Presbyterian Hospital. He is very difficult to get appt. with though. I was also impressed by Dr. Dale Lange, very highly qualified Mount Sinai Medical Center. I have seen Dr. Latov’s partner, Dr. Russell Chin. He has been excellent in diagnosing my CIDP quickly, getting treatment started and being available for questions by email (I live over 200 miles away from his office). Dr. Latov and Dr. Chin are in the Peripheral Neuropathy Center, which is affiliated with Weill-Cornell Medical College and N.Y. Presbyterian Hospital. They are leaders in the field of CIDP research. Each time I have gone there, I have seen others receiving IVIg. They also have a very kind and professional staff, which counts for a lot these days. Here is their website: [url]http://wo-pub1.med.cornell.edu/cgi-…eral+Neuropathy[/url]

      I went to Helen Hayes in Haverstraw for rehab – I can’t say enough about the staff there. There were several GBS clients there ranging from my “mild” case on up to someone still hooked up to the trach.

      Dr Weinberg in Manhattan. he is with NYU. He’s great. I’ve been using him for 8 years now. He’s at 650 1st Ave.

      Weill-Cornell Peripheral Neuropathy Center in New York City. My doctor is Howard Sander MD, but I also know Dr. Chin, Dr. Latov, and Dr. Brannagan– EVERYONE there is top-notch! [url]http://www.cornellphysicians.com/periphneu/[/url]

      take care. be well.

      Dr. Schottenstein is simply amazing, has extensive knowledge with GBS, and specializes in pain management among other things. He helped my dad get through his bout with GBS 16 months ago. Below is the link. Higly recommend!!!

      I am also a patient of Dr. Howard Sander, and highly recommend him. He was with the Cornell Peripheral Neuropathy Center (and Drs. Latov and Chin) for years, but is now back at St. Vincents Hospital, 170 W. 12th Street, Cronin Building, Room 466, New York, New York 10011. Phone 212-604-7760.

      For years I’ve been joking that we need “I [B][COLOR=”Red”]<3[/COLOR][/B] my neurologist" bumper stickers! :p

      Cornell Peripheral Neuropathy Center:

      St. Vincents Medical Center:
      (St. Vincents' website leaves a lot to be desired... I just include it out of fairness, since I included Cornell's! Dr. Sander is great-- and has nothing to do with that website, I'm sure haha!)
