      I am a patient of Dr. Norman Latov. He is a world renowned CIDP specialist. He is the director of the Peripheral Neuropathy Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. He has done a wonderful job diagnosing and treating my condition. Dr. Chin is there and is also excellent. Their office is located at York Avenue and East 70th Street in NYC.

      Dr. Latov is top in the field but if he can’t take you there is an equally good group at the Columbia Neurological Centre. Dr Rajeev Motiwala works with Dr. Thomas Brannigan’s group there.

      Dr. Motiwala saw my husband in April,2010. He received diagnosis and treatment within 4 days of arriving in NYC (from Canada).

      Google Columbia Neurological Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital for contact info.

      Best of luck to you!

      I saw Dr Rajeev Motiwala this past summer. My neurologist on Long Island asked me to get a second opinion. She figured that they see more patients with CIDP and may have other answers.

      He was wonderful. I faxed him all my records and a diary I had kept of all the events with my condition. When i got there, he had already read everything and had my paperwork in piles on his desk and had highlighted portions,which confirmed that he actually read my file.

      He spend an hour with me and wrote a list of things that needed to get done and wrote a thorough letter to my doctor.

      He didn’t take my insurance, so I had to pay out of pocket $600.00 (well worth it), and then I submitted to insurance for out of network.

      Good luck.
